For some reason, I have a fascination with and for squirrels. I happened across a photo on Zebra Site...and thought…ah this site is familiar. How fun is that. Today I was inspired by a woman who apparently likes squirrels and has a number of sites, that are an inspiration. Lisa Brunetti.
I came across her site that you will enjoy if you love squirrels, honesty, photography, spiral art and more.
Go read it is worth the journey. https://playamart.wordpress.com/
I think I should say more about this site Playamart. Take the time to read this ladies journey. Her thoughts and writing will move and inspire you. And isn’t that what life is all about.
She creates art inspired by the spiral.

This note caught my eye
“A friend says that he loves my stories, but it’s a shame that I’m in an institution in Mississippi and making this all up!” Lisa Brunetti

“We all leave traces of ourselves; tiny bits of our soul linger behind and continue to touch others. By having others help with a group painting, those energies will forever be embedded in that work.” Lisa Brunetti
With such a philosophy, it is no wonder she has created workshops centering on group painting called, “I Can Do This!” In these workshops held in Panama, Costa Rica and Ecuador, she calls for even more involvement, with a view to creating artists as well as art.
For more on Brunetti’s Mola Series, along with painting names and an in-depth look at how each work evolved, go to PRECOLUMBIAN MOLA SERIES. To connect with the artist herself and read more about her on-going projects, go to her award-winning blog: Zeebra Designs and Destinations.

Here’s to the women artists, creating, daring, celebrating life. Maria Lassnig was an Austrian artist known for her painted self portraits and her theory of “body awareness”.
Her art was about exploring the insecurities associated with the internal sensations of the body by shamelessly exhibiting, for our viewing pleasure, her own body in paintings and drawings.

The Austrian artist Maria Lassnig who has died aged 94, represented the naked body with startling honesty. Fluid strokes of bright paint vividly suggested the colour and texture of her own ageing skin, although the personas that she adopted were often extremely ambiguous. Lassnig achieved recognition from the 1940s onwards throughout mainland Europe and, later, the US but it was not until 2008, at the age of nearly 90, that she was given her first solo exhibition in Britain, to critical acclaim.
