Britta's Letters from (and sometimes about) Berlin

Happy Easter! Buona Pasqua! Fröhliche Ostern!

Dear You, 
                                  Happy Easter! 
I told you that each Easter I draw or paint an egg. This year I choose a motive from Winnie-The-Pooh.
Pooh says:              "And that's that. What do we do next?"

Enjoy your holiday - whatever you do next!

  1. Oh that is beautiful Britta! I didn't know you were an artist! Is it a real egg? What a pity having to break it open! You have given me such a wonderful idea; I want to try and make one (not lay it!) like that, next year. Greetings Maria x

    1. Thank you, Maria! I visited my Italian friend today and she told me that in Italy you don't have that custom: we prepare a raw egg by carefully picking a little hole into the top (with a needle) and the egg-bottom - then one places a little tissue over the upper hole - and then you blow (hard) and eventually the egg-white and yellow come out - so the egg is hollow and you can paint on it. Lasts foerever - or till the day it breaks :-) I wait for a picture of yours next year! Greetings, Britta x

    1. Thank you! I had some branches of Magnolias (kept them after the blossoms fell down - now they grow little leaves).

  3. Dear Brigitta, what I did next was come home after Easter visits and see what you did with the egg. Brava!

    1. Thank you, Emma! Our Easter was fine - even the weather. One could go outside without wearing too heavy clothes. And did you have a good time?

  5. You have been hiding your light under a bushel Britta and concealing your artistic talents - the egg is simply lovely

    1. Thank you, Rosemary - I like to dab a little :-) (Makes me instantly think of 'Mapp and Lucia'...)

  6. Really Britta? I didn't realise that you paint, and I have to say that the little egg is a wee treasure. Well done!

    1. Thank you, Pondside! To draw is so calming, and one can concentrate on what one is doing.
