Brochure for new ATELIER325 event in July

Brochure for new ATELIER325 event in July

I have been working on our marketing material for weeks now. You know how it is when  you create, for example, a brochure or a flyer. You sit down at the computer, you just want to work for an hour and next time you look it’s just 3 hours later!

Many things are happening for us right now and we would like to share some of that. Kim has been preparing her daughter’s marriage for months now, (she sew the wedding dress and I can tell you that it’s pure magic) and I prepare my definite leave from my dayjob. We have planned a Creative Art Retreat for later this year (see the brochure above)  and am now sending out this information to people who might be interested in joining us in Paris for this event.

Kim will travel to Germany in June, we’ll meet there and then participate (June 23rd)  in the Art Market ‘Fluss mit Flair” in Giessen,  my hometown. Of course I especially love this event as it will allow me to see my family again and many many old friends and also introduce Kim, my friend and business-partner, to all of them!

Next planned event will be….a wonderful Art Exhibition in Fulda, Germany, together with our friend Verena Kühnlein. The title of the exhibition is “Meeresbewohner – Marine Creatures” .

We have begun paintings for this exhibition, and will give you a preview soon. Stay coonnected, enjoy Spring, greetings from Paris

RedKitty  watermarked

Did you miss the market in Heuchelheim in November?  Would you just like to see more of the work we have on offer?  By all means, mark your calendar and plan a trip to Giessen on 23 June 2013!  The festival will begin about 11:00 with all kinds of fun!


We will still have “Bottles and Cats” (paintings) as well as some never before seen items!  Come by and look for us.  We plan on having lots of fun.

Sketchbook Bottles

I have been exploring some line work and been obsessed with bottles lately. This is something I pulled from my sketchbook for you to see.  This was done in a Moleskine watercolor book.  The colors are watercolors and the lines are just done with a technical pen.   KRF

Honey Lemon Chipolte Glaze

I love lemons.  They are so refreshing and so good for you, too.  I probably use 8 or 10 organic lemons a week.  They are equally fun to sketch, as well.  One day, I just picked up a pencil and did a couple of quick sketches before making dinner.

This particular night we were grilling wild salmon.  I have a glaze I have been making for years which consists of honey, ground chipolte pepper and lemon juice.  It is one of those sweet, hot and acidic tastes that somehow seems to work.  Do you use chipole in your cooking?  We prefer it to regular cayenne pepper as it is far more smoky.  Indeed it is smoked jalapenos!

Do you ever sketch your meals or any parts of them?   KRF
