First of all: I am still alive!
Second: I wish we had heaps of snow and frost and everything to keep me in the house, quiet, still and cosy. Life is to brute, sometimes!

That's why I thought, I'll post some art brut, images from a museum near Vienna, which we visited on our way along the Danube. The artists living at Maria Gugging have psychiatric illnesses and mental disabilities, but showing great humour and a huge lust of colours. (http://www.gugging.org/index.php/en/art-brut-center)

A riot of colours and painting, animals and lettering. A tremendous set from this find on your travels Johanna, you always bring us something unusual. Strange how one name jumps out at us.
Good to see you back and posting, I hope your husband is back to fitness again?

Yes, that name springs out at us, but as it seems, the artist framed it with two crosses! I wondered what thoughts went through his troubled mind while he was painting. It looks like he knows a lot and was trying to express a lot in this painting. It is only one wall in his room, but all the walls and the ceilling looks like this - amazing and slightly disturbing...

Fascinating to see the artwork. Wonderful bold colours. All a little disturbing and doubtless disturbed. I think my favourite section is in V4 and those soaring white doves!

There is almost too much in your lead image for me to take in Johanna, the others I can cope with a little better. It is wonderful that these people can be so creative and it must be a wonderful way to release some of their emotions.

These wonderful shots need some serious study time to try to read the thoughts behind them. What a wonderful thing that they should be allowed the time and space to express themselves.

I can imagine a lot of thoughts would be released here Johanna.
Perhaps a good bit of therapy for them to release them.
And very colourful they are too !!

I like the way the artwork fills your frame in V1. The pictures remind me of some that I saw in South America (Panama), they have that sort of style, and are also very colourful.

Pleased to be no30 for these fine uploads Johanna. These artists do seem to be having such fun and its magical that they can express themselves in this way.

V1 is fascinating ,lots of political and religious symbols scattered about ,obviously means something to the artist . I struggle to understand the minds of so called normal people ,at times ,perhaps we should all express our inner thoughts for public assesment ,scary thought.
