BB Looks on

My loyal little grandpa, BB, watches as I paint.
I encourage you to study fine art and music.  Look at great paintings and read about them. They are the height of achievement of culture.  I am hard-pressed to find anything more complex than the Western classical orchestra in our culture. I’ve been delving into the ideas of Oswald Spengler while trying to keep my head up about society.  We seem to be in the phase of society that he calls “Winter,” when we lose focus on art and music (including literature and philosophy), and focus on immediate material gains and efficiency.

2017 Paintings

2017 has been full of inspiration.  I have a great new studio space. I collected art and visited artists in Morocco.  I saw Amy Dryer’s collection at Masters Gallery in Calgary. I had a live-edge olive wood table custom made as well as a chiffon scarf.  I have an exhibition at Apik Fine Art in Eau Claire Market.  I have an Instagram (@Eileen_Kosasih) I am newly inspired!

Here are a few newer works:

experimenting with some scrap fabric I found.
I avoided needing elastic/zippers/buttons/belt loops by making the high waistband extend into a tie-waist.
