Another impression from the wedding we were invited to last weekend. There were loads of young, funky people (something you don't see much of around here)and we danced until late into the night. As the bride is originally from Munich in Germany, we all met up again the next day for a "Bayrische Brotzeit", a bavarian lunch with delicious specialities flown in from Munich.
We thoroughly enjoyed "Weißwurst", "Brezel", "Leberkäs" and beer from the "Münchner Hofbräuhaus", the famous brewery in Munich. The best though were the joung people who showed up in their traditional bavarian costumes, the "Dirndl" and the "Lederhosen", topped with little hats, adorned with feathers. These two I discovered in deep conversation and just loved the way they were standing on the green field,contrasting with the colours of their beautiful outfits.

Lisa, something about this painting is captivating. The air of expectancy around the two figures but your background also is so beautifully painted.

Hi Sheila,
I am very pleased you like the painting! Your approval always means a lot to me.
I also found it intriguing, the way they were standing opposite of eachother like figurines that had been set there by someone else, and all the things you can imagine they're talking about...

Hi Liza,

This looks like a scene from a movie. You can't help wondering what they're saying, and what they mean to each other. Super.

You hit the nail on the head, Barbara. You're so good at finding the right words!
Thank you!
