About

A Full Measure of Joy, Even on the Rainy Days

Life doesn't always read like a storybook, but I believe it's a beautiful mess--if only we have eyes to see it.

It's about artful, inspired living, even on the rainy days.

For here in Northern Germany, near the ebb and flow of the Baltic Sea, the rain contains the healing powers of these waters. The sudden downpours, the long days of showers, and even the subtle drops of morning dew enliven everything they touch with a mysterious lushness that transforms even the urban grunge into a rich patina of character. These magical depths, acclaimed in myth and folklore for centuries, have made their way into the pen and paintbrush of this little American girl. And I can't resist the call to tell the story, to create with my small hands little talismans of truth, healing and redemption.

I have been an artist all my life, but it wasn't until my daughters made me a mama that true joy began threatening to burst from my every pore: splashing paint on the page became the only suitable outlet for the overflow! But as it goes with life, joy is often mixed with tears. Yes, life with two lively preschoolers is amazing but can be quite frazzled and messy at times. And living as an American expatriate in Germany often leaves me feeling fragmented and displaced.

But my watercolors slow me down, help me to maintain a semblance of calm; my collages give me the sense of puzzling together the pieces of my sometimes-broken heart to make something beautiful from the mess.

Even as I labor to capture delicate perfection and intricate detail with my brushes, it is this beautiful mess of life that truly takes my breath away. And this is what my work is about: creativity, inspiration, faith--about choosing joy and making a home and a family no matter where we are, no matter what challenges face us in life.

    Owner, Artist And Seeker Of Beauty In The Everyday

    I'm a "Heartland-of-America-Hometown-Girl" transplanted to the northern outskirts of urban Hamburg, Germany. My life as wife-mother-artist-writer is delightfully jumbled. . . beautifully messy and joyfully imperfect.

Hi, I'm Sadee Schilling, an American watercolor and mixed-media artist transplanted to Hamburg Germany. I feel so blessed that my artwork has sparked your interest!

Living in a sort of "in between" place--making a life in Germany while still calling parts of Colorado, Kansas and Oklahoma "home"--is a large part of my inspiration as an artist. My work often refers to the idea of finding "home" in the beauty of the moment.

I write about my life and inspiration at www.aPicturebookLife.blogspot.com

I'm always available to answer questions. Please contact me if you need more information about my art, making a payment, shipping, anything!

ABOUT THE PAPER AND INK
********************************************************************************************
Archival Quality - What does this mean?
Images fade over time. Printing artwork on archival quality paper helps preserve the colors and prevents the inks from degrading and breaking down.

My *Giclee prints are made with archival paper AND printed with archival Epson Ultrachrome pigment inks--light-fast, water-fast and age-resistant (prints are said to last up to 100 years)! I currently order my prints from a professional printing company. Prints listed in my shop are usually kept in stock in my studio. For out-of-stock print requests, please allow an estimated 5 business days before your print ships to you.

*Giclee Print - What does this mean?
Giclee is another term you may often read in descriptions of fine art archival prints made with pigmented inks. The word "Giclee" (pronounced Gee’clay) is a French term meaning to spray or squirt, which is how an inkjet printer works. This kind of print is made on a large, professional inkjet printer specially designed for making fine art prints with no visible dot screen pattern. This means that the image has all the tonalities and hues of the original painting.
