more unicorns...

Unicorns do exist
Proof below :-)

They have a thing with rainbows and lasers, their best friend is a space-cat, their meat is magic and even Obama likes  them..

pluk de dag

it's not very photogenic, but i am verrrrrrry happy with my new bernina
it can sew an alphabet and memorises buttonholes and the sound is sooo smooth.
pretty expensive as well, but hey "seize the day"!

while we were at a little cute festival in indre (france), we took the opportunity to visit nantes and la machine.
sitting in the huge carrousel (three levels!) on a scampi, we felt like kids again  (actually we always do).

Joel Penkman

this is what his website tells about Joel Penkman:

I love food, and I love to paint, so combining the two seemed like a good idea.

My compositions are simple still-life studies with clean backgrounds to make easier for individuals to make a connection. Food triggers memories and emotion, I like that people can bring something of themselves to the artworks. My favourite medium is egg tempera. It is very time consuming as I make the gesso to prepare my boards and grind my own paint to mix, but the results are worth it.

I was born in 1979 in New Zealand were I grew up. After finishing my degree in Graphic Design at Canterbury University's School of Fine Art, I moved to the UK where I have worked as a graphic designer and most recently a freelance designer and artist.

I hope my pictures will make people smile.

they certainly make us smile!!

On the way back from flachau, we stopped at a local supermarket, where I couldn't pass the sugar compartment without buying some, just for the nice package....silly!

foggy flachau

fog, sun, käseknödelsuppe (looks like boiled brains, but tastes yummie!), a beautiful view and some arty farty clouds, we had it all on our family skiing trip to flachau, austria.

we even saw a lady giving her dog a hike down the mountain IN her backpack :-)
