a temporary linen curtain

A flier found in a gallery
Fine Little Day drawing
Red enamel teapot(now broken) re-purposed as knitting needles holder
A red frame, once belonged to my paternal grand mother
Paint bucket that with water becomes rusty and I think is nice
A temporary linen curtain for a temporary window

I don't know if I love art as I used to love it.

*Update at 17:23 pm GMT:
 I love it more than before.

nice reflexion to start the week with!
love the length of the curtains so you can still gaze at your little treasures when they're drawn.

Thank you Samantha :)
Louise, "winglowi" sounds like a greeting :D
Fanja, I like to start a quite boring day with a philosophical issue ;D
The curtains are recycled from another past home, where the window was way lower, very useful to spy on neighbours too!

Uff. I am glad you do like it today. And tomorrow, hopefully. Is this in any way related to your volunteer work?

Trula, I love art! I grew in a house with lots of art books. My dad instead of children story used to tell us stories about artists, he was especially fond of the unlucky ones for some reasons.
My father was also what we call it a "Sunday painter" or "dilettante", we use to go with him to Sunday ex-tempora contests.
I can't think of a life without ART.
Art is for me the conscious part of ours mostly unconscious life.

About the voluntary work, I help at Kettle's Yard sometimes, I love that House Museum and the gallery.
