An Artistic Sanatorium . . . for the muse plagued with artistic attention deficit disorder.

Merci mes amis!

I actually have some new artwork to post, but alas! it is buried in the rubble heap that is my new apartment.  It will turn up soon.

I wanted to do a special post for a few precious followers who have been so kind and supportive lately with their comments.  Tara, Renee, Sherri, and Ruthie . . .

And here are some bits and bobs I thought you might find inspiring.

First "Danse Macabre" conducted and arranged by Leopold Stokowski and recorded in 1925.  Listen to it here.
Via Morbid Anatomy and Dinosaur Gardens.

And a scene from a masterful Russian animated movie, Konjek-Gorbunok from the studio Soyuzmultfilm. Byzantine Russian palaces, firebirds, magic horses . . . I grew up watching this fluid, sparkling gem. Enjoy!

dear catherine, thank you for the special post x it is always a pleasure to visit here & see the treasures that you post, i love the film below. Do hope your rubble heap begins to clear. i seem to move every 4 yrs, not intentionally! and it takes me ages to get organised afterwards, u would think i should be an expert now * ruthie

Thank you so much Catherine!! This post just made my day [despite my being very late in seeing this!]. I hope all is going well for you, and that you have been enjoying the holidays so far...and thanks for the amazing links!

Goodness gracious am I late to the party!! I adore the Danse Macabre! I asked a local musician recently if he knew it (he plays varied acoustic instruments.) Is that meant to be Rasputin in the animation? I love how the king grabs his crown when he's being dunked. Haha!
