Despite being extremly tired I just can’t stop myself from planning my next crochet. It will be in deep purple. For the spirituality of the color. I need to turn inwards for a little while, together with the russian painter Ivan Kramskoy. He was a member of the art movement Peredvizjniki, Kramskoy caused quite a stir when he showed a painting with an old farmer. That was not something to paint at that time. Many of the members of the Peredvizjniki-movement were christians. I believe their driving force came from their faith, they were contemporary with the writer Leo Tolstoj and many russians got inspired by his writings, about faith, ethics and equality.
