Friday, December 5th, 2008 - The Birds of Sorrow and of Grief

This morning, the secretary opened the 5th little door of her advent-calendar, and found this behind it:

“You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow and of grief from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.”

She has been thinking about this the whole day. It seems very desirable to do as the saying says, but how?

It seems, too, that Miss Doodle is one of those persons, who naturally does what the saying suggests. So, this came to the secretary's mind, it's for Suki.

Wednesday Dec. 3rd, 2008 - Miss Doodle sightseeing with friends

Artist Mike introduced the secretary to Ms. Esmeralda and Ms. Ermintrude and the secretary told Miss Doodle about them. So Miss Doodle invited the two "Mses" to a Paris sightseeing tour and while they were heading to the Eiffeltower, the secretary took a picture!

In the morning the sheep and Miss Doodle had been to the coiffeur (that is why Esmeralda and Ermintrude may look a bit like giant poodles) and here they are, all dressed up, looking glamorous.

Monday, Dec. 1st, 2008 - Looking for inspiration

Miss Doodle does nothing at the moment. Empty easel, empty canvas, empty mind. Everything's empty, except the notebook. The notebook is the artist's survival kit in NOTHING TIMES.

award !

Miss Doodle will be back very soon now, in the meantime she wanted to thank Suki for this Award which is for (Quote Suki:)

"This award is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing (I am adding in art work)...that's the general idea. "

Will be back soon to send it off to 15 (wow, 15) friends:), but if we wait too long, every friend will allready have one, so we apologize in advance if that happens:)

Happy Greetings

the secretary

Wednesday Oct. 22, 2008 - Miss Doodle and the Bluetoothed Dogs

Why not let our dogs have those magic electronic devices too? :) so they can do their walks alone in the future:

The communication-bubbles say - from left to right :
- Dog owner to dog: "get your ass home now and don't forget to pick up your turd"
- Dog to dog owner: "well, how about giving me the access code for the door? I have been waiting outside for almost an hour now"
- Dog to other dog:" Yeah, I've already bitten 10 today, this is gonna be one nice autumn day!"

Monday September 29th, 2008 - working for the exhibition

Miss Doodle is very busy helping her secretary to make a list of all the pieces which will go into the exhibition in November. Watercolour paintings, textile works, acrylic paintings both on canvas and on paper , prints, all in all 61 pieces. Some are already in Germany, and some are still in Paris.

At the same time the secretary (driving her husband crazy with this last-minute-inspirational-artwork:) puts the final stitches (or almost final:) to the three textile pieces which will go into a collective exhibition here in Paris...

Wednesday September 24th, 2008 - Bits of Conversation

Miss Doodle, on her morning walk, or on her way through the city, captures bits of people's phone- conversation everywhere... She wonders what her brain does with all this information taken out of it's context. Is there a little box full of this thought-confetti?

September 16th, 2008 - Preparing for the "FULL METAL JACKET" mode

Soon tough times will begin. From late September until February/March, Paris is on a race. With it's peak just before Christmas. The metro is overcrowded, and so are the streets and the shops and the museums, life is speed.

In view of this franctic period, Miss Doodle asked her secretary to design her a protective outfit, comfortable, capable to ward off fiercest attacks and still looking stylish....

Monday, September 15th, 2008 - Miss Doodle in murky boxes

This was how Miss Doodle felt before her holidays, multiplied and preserved in somehow murky shoe-boxes, sardine-tins, Barbie-boxes....

The whole painting is murky, must have been one of those days. Rainy.

Thursday, September 11th, 2008 - The City Cat

Miss Doodle took her cat, when she went on holiday.The cat, a pure city cat, ventured on a tree. You understand that he neverlearned how to do that.

But there he was, going higher and higher on a branch,until the branch was too slim. And too high up so that Miss Doodle couldn't touch the cat.

The cat slipped and turned and hang there like a ripe pear!

Then he fell, Miss Doodle gasped and tried to catch him and...

When it was clear that no harm was done, Miss Doodle laughed her head off......
The cat went inside, sulking, for a nap on the bed.

Juli 15th, 2008 - STREET STILL LIFE: The abandoned watermelon, orange and banana with pigeon

NB: The secretary used a black ink pen here, watersoluble, which gives the whole painting a touch of "rainy day"... it isn't a rainy day, but a very sunny one. And this watermelon on the sidewalk: the passers-by do not allow themselves to look at it and to ponder it, except the pigeon and two little girls, walking hand in hand, yelling: Iiiiihhh (meaning something like YIKES), although this watermelon still does look beautiful, juicy and not damaged (yet). So, what is upseeting them (and Miss Doodle) ? It must be the soaked tissue paper, waste chewing gum and aluminium foil strips etc...lying there too, the whole image is one of waste.
