Ignoring The Economic Crisis

We've added another two paintings to our "collection" of paintings by Basel artist, Regula Mathys-Hänggi. We bought our first painting - Sterngucker - about three years ago. Then, last year, we purchased two more of her paintings - Zeichensprachen III and Engelsreigen. All three of these paintings hang prominently in our living room for our, and our guests', enjoyment.

Earlier this week, we took delivery of our latest acquisitions: Orchideenblüten and Sechs Grazien. The picture of the paintings is scanned from the exhibit brochure, so I apologize for the graininess.

Seeing how we were running out of wall space in our living room, we decided to hang them up on the wall behind our headboard in our bedroom. Therefore, I guess these paintings will be more for our enjoyment only. Our guests will certainly be allowed to go into our bedroom and have a look at them if they like, but I'm not serving them drinks and appetizers in there - that's for the living room only.

I'm thinking that'll be it for Regula as far as we're concerned. We really like her paintings, but I think it'll be time to explore someone new next time.

I think it's ultra cool that you'll have some Swiss art to take back with you when you finally move...

I guess I don't understand modern art.

I know an up-and-coming artist in Europe if you're looking for someone new to collect... ;)

Nice pics. I found your blog by chance and have been reading about your travels. I come from your past and wasn't sure it was you until I saw a picture on your blog. You have not changed at all in the 33 years since I saw you last. I would like to e-mail you to catch-up! Bob

Nice art work, you can take a look at my art if you are interested. I used to live in Basel for 6.5 years. It was a wonderful time. I enjoy your blog too!
Best wishes,
