A colour orgy... or: No naked heart









A "custom made" object, for a little friend
who wanted me to make for her a "red star stuffed
animal with little embroidered orange stars"...


...and speaking of hearts - here´s
3 Quarks Daily´s Wednesday Poem:

"We hardly ever see the moon any more
so no wonder
it's so beautiful when we look up suddenly
and there it is gliding broken-faced over the bridges
brilliantly coursing, soft, and a cool wind fans
your hair over your forehead and your memories
of Red Grooms' locomotive landscape
I want some bourbon/you want some oranges/I love the leather
jacket Norman gave me
and the corduroy coat David
gave you, it is more mysterious than spring, the El Greco
heavens breaking open and then reassembling like lions
in a vast tragic veldt
that is far from our small selves and our temporally united
passions in the cathedral of Januaries

everything is too comprehensible
these are my delicate and caressing poems
I suppose there will be more of those others to come, as in the past
so many!
but for now the moon is revealing itself like a pearl
to my equally naked heart"

(Frank O`Hara: Avenue A)

This is so sweet! I would like to order a stuffed pink heart with white embroidered text "Love overcomes all Fear". Is this possible? I could repay you with the long planned coffee/tee and cake in a nice Café or anything you would like to have in exchange. Just an idea...:-)
Thank you for inspiring me daily, C.

Thanks, Paula, for your 2-dimensional encouragement... Commenting on your blog, by the way, seems as difficult lately as the other way round...

Oh, wonderful to do a commission for a child.

It is - but then you hear "this is so beautiful, but it would be even more wonderful, if there would be this and that" - ergo: next commission...
