i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and if you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.

i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).

currently i try to publish frequently once in a week (mondays/tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

take-a-word: mailart

"Please Read the Letter" is a song originally recorded by Robert Plant and Jimmy Page for the 1998 album "Walking into Clarksdale". It was released as the second single of the album.
Plant and Alison Krauss later recorded a version of the song for their collaboration album "Raising Sand". The song was well received by critics, and won the Record of the Year award at the 2009 Grammy Awards.
