AC #194: SKY|SKIES




I started at the first tree of the botanical garden
{a huge plane tree Platanus x hispanica, planted in 1821 by Prof. Lehmann}

and I wrap myself in a palm leave, wearing it as a skirt, s.a.. You see, I am in a funny mood.
The whole week I felt like on cloud nine, especially in the open. Surely the influences coming from the south... with nice temperatures around 24°C 




Sometimes the veils raises



and the sky is an ocean
{of love}





I am back home
after the fire in my castle
the Castle at the Eisenbach

It is close to the skies
and it feels very good


It feels even very good to find back to a kind of routine, 
the sweet routine of the Art Challenge (former Drawing Challenge)

Eric of Cerulean is the host of the 194th AC with his theme SKY|SKIES

Between all the moving boxes I have taken my camera to touch the unlimited sky. You find more of it over his place! Thank you for hosting, Eric! And thank you for your visit, dear friends.

Wish you a beautiful weekend, happy Whitsun. 


Veni, Sancte Spiritus

mother

Ich hatte ein zauberhaftes, langes Wochenende voller Lachen, Singen und herzlicher Begegnungen:
in der Hamburger Kunsthalle (meine kleine Führung vom Samstag halte ich noch für verbesserungswürdig ;-)) und beim großen Familientreffen, dann Muttertags-Rhabarberkuchen und Art Tea Shop in der Bel Étage bei Lili Nalovi und Jesko Willert mit Maman und ältester Tochter. Das reinste Vergnügen!


I had an enchanting, long weekend full of laughter, singing and warm connections: 
at the Hamburger Kunsthalle (my little lead through the collection is in need for improvement ;-)) and at a big family gathering, then Mother's Day-rhubarb tarte and Art Tea Shop at the Bel Étage of Lili Nalovi and Jesko Willert together with Maman and eldest daughter. A pleasure!


Hope you're fine! Wish you a wonderful start into a new week :)

Love, Ariane. Rose

Himmelfahrt. Neue Hamburger Kunsthalle.





Die Hamburger Kunsthalle erstrahlt nach der Renovierung in
 neuem Glanz und frischen Farben. Durch den neuen (alten) Eingang
mache ich mich auf einen überraschenden Rundgang.

The Hamburger Kunsthalle shines in new splendor and fresh
colors after the renovation. Through the new (old) entrance I
head off for a surprising round tour.




 Lindenterrasse by Max Liebermann 



Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer by Caspar David Friedrich



Ich treffe auf alte Bekannte (s.o.)
und finde neue

Nach dem Bade von Reinhold Begas:
sinnlich schimmernder Marmor,
kann nur schwer meine Hände in Zaum halten...


I meet old friends and find new




After the bath by Reinhold Begas:
sensorily gleaming marble
can barely control myself...





Ich habe mich ganz schwindelig geguckt auf der Suche nach
einem Bild, das wohl jetzt nicht mehr hängt, sondern im Archiv ist.
Im Café Liebermann stärke ich mich erstmal.

Es ist schon sehr komisch: Ich kenne die Wege hier, doch
 es sieht anders aus. Es hängen Bilder und manchmal flackern
Phantombilder auf. Genauso geht es mir gerade auch
in der Burg am Eisenbach



My head was swimming after search for a special
painting, which isn't on the wall now, but in the archive.
At the Cafè Liebermann I take a rest.

It is funny: I know the paths through this building, but
all look different. There are paintings hanging on the wall and
sometimes blazes some 'phantom-paintings'. Same is
the Castle at the Eisenbach






Mich lockt die Sonne nach draußen und ich komme bald wieder:
Am Samstag werde ich eine kleine Gruppe von Freunden durch die Sammlung führen
und: Im ganzen Mai ist der Eintritt kostenlos!


The sun woos me and I wanna come back soon:
At Saturday I will lead a group of friends through the collection and:
in the whole May the admission is for free!






I take a walk along the Binnenalster to the Park













and take the bus homewards



You can find me even on Instagram and Facebook... only glimpses, it's like fastfood, no?
I yearn for a feast!
And it's time for a new art challenge, right?
Hope you're fine.
Love, Ariane. Rose
