Hilde Lambrechts

Okay, I quite my blog earlier this evening.....again, but that was before I went to the art show and I just have to tell you about it.

I went to Hilde Lambretchs vernissage at the Rothwell Galleries with my wonderful cohort "Adventurer."  Her art is incredibly beautiful and ranges from sculpture, pen and ink, pastel, to oil paintings.  She is a most creative and versatile artist!

It was a crowded affair, but as we made our way through the gallery I started to notice the most remarkable thing!  A number of the guests there were wearing clothes that shouldn't be!  What the heck am I talking about?  These are the people I'm used to seeing naked! 

This past Wednesdays "hand" model was there, the larger more volumptuous one from last semester, even Pseudo Kurt was mulling around fully dressed.  (Eat your heart out Emma!)  When I noticed this I pointed each one out to Adventurer and we were watching as Hilde pointed out to the various models which of her works was based on each of them.

And.......I found myself  BLUSHING! 

I can't explain it.  I see these people naked for 3 hour blocks of time once a week and I'm not phased.  I see them fully dressed out in public and I turn beet red and start stuttering.  I had half a mind to ask them to undress so I could speak with them sensibly.

Hilde also gave me some wonderful news she heard at the art school to do with my own art.  It made me not want to quit art again for now....for a few hours anyways.

Anyhow, since I've dismembered much of the blog I suppose I should carry on through with my tantrum and quit again tomorrow.  I'm sure my sour mood will return in the morning and I'll find yet another thing to demolish on this site.  But for now, what a lovely evening and I better go to bed while I'm on a roll.

You're an artist, artists are tempermental... but be sure and come back.

Enjoyed the post and what a strange reaction, haha. however, you're an artist and artists are a little "odd"..

but blushing cause people are dressed, ...'re too funny.

I'm so glad you haven't stopped Blogging. Even bogging about quitting is better than no blog at all! Best wishes.
