  1. Fantastic work today - love your Dalì portrait, and the little crooked house is just gorgeous. Uuuuppps, falsche Sprache, Dir einen Happy PPF, Hugs, Valerie

  2. I adore your wonky happy house. It genuinely looks quite happy in a wabi-sabi sort of way.

    Dali's mustache looks good on him, and you have captured his facial expression so well. Hope you are ready for a fantastic weekend.

  3. Susi your art always amazes me with the variety and colour use... way out of what I would ever consider using :-) Love your happy houses and Dali is impressive.

  4. Hallo Susi,
    eine fantastische Arbeit, wie immer ;-)
    das Porträt ist großartig, du hast diesen Dali wirklich gut getroffen, es schmeichelt ihn ;-)
    Viele glückliche Stunden in einem glücklichen Haus.

  5. Guten Morgen Susanne, ich schliesse mich der Sabine komplett an!
    Und wenn Du so richtig gross rauskommst in der kunstgeschichte - eigenes Museum in Berlin - .... dann werde ich stolz sein, dich als online-freundin zu kennen!
    Herzlich P.

  6. Oh, Meister Dali hat Dich inspiriert, liebe Susi! Er ist schick geworden, der Bart. Und der Meister :)
    Auch das kleine Haus mit seinen Nähten und den Planeten. Eine wunderschöne Idee, auch die Worte dazu.

    Liebe Grüße zu Dir - und Knuddel
    Deine Erika

  7. Super der Meistro mit sienen wilden Gesichtsausdruck!

  29. Love your happy house journal page
    Happy PPF

  30. Dali is awesome... I like the glint of madness in his eye... he had to be a bit out there to paint as he did... and that journal page is lovely... so fresh and light and open ... sometimes I tire of seeing heavily coloured and layered pages where the images get a bit lost and the whites on this are fabulous... I love it...xx

  31. I love your whimsical house journal page.

  32. Oh this is so Dali Awesome!!! Love it. You captured a wonderful expression.

  33. The Dali is wonderful! Very fun.

  34. Ohhhh fabulous Dali' portrait. Very well done.

  35. Fabulous face! The journal page is wonderful!

  36. Wow! Fantastic vivid colour and bold shading to give Dali real intensity in the portrait. Amazing work and such a contrast with the charming light-hearted house page.
