90-Year-Old Grandma Turns Czech Village Into Art Gallery, Hand-Paints Houses With Flowers

A 90-year-old grandma is painting her small village blue with her majestic floral designs which she place on house walls.

Age doesn’t matter when it comes to living your passion. A living example of this is a Czech grandma who’s painting her village blue with houses as her canvass and flowers as her main art object.

Designing the exterior of houses with paint has already become obsolete. There are those who want their homes to stand out by putting unique features like tiles or decorative stones to stand out from the rest in the neighborhood. Signing an artist though to create a more detailed design on the house exterior will be quite expensive, but a village in Czech Republic has been blessed with an artist who offers her stamps her creations on homes for free.

Nothing is stopping Anežka (Agnes) Kašpárková from expressing her creativity; not even the hump on her back nor her old age. Anežka is already 90 years old but she still goes around the small village of Louka, Czech Republic to paint houses with different floral designs. She’s been trying to make the area look like the little Polish village where every home is covered with painted flowers.

The artistic grandma reportedly spends every spring and summer seasons dressing the windows and door frames of the houses in her village with her majestic designs. She was a former agricultural worker turned artist. Anežka revealed that she developed her creative hobby from another local woman who did the same for several years.

Anežka uses bright blue color and a small brush to paint flowery designs on houses. She comes up with intricate floral patterns inspired by the traditional Moravian (southern Czech) artwork and puts them on walls. Anežka insists though that she does the paintings purely for pleasure saying:

“I am an artist…I just enjoy it and I want to help.”

Living in a Barbie World: Singaporean Man Has More Than 9,000 Dolls

Because who wouldn’t want thousands of pairs of blue eyes adorably following you around in an empty house.

By

Some children are passionate about Barbie dolls. They’d collect them, dress them, accessorize them, and endlessly bug their parents to buy them more. Others put their Barbie doll collection to a good cause to help countless girls like themselves.

On the other hand, there are some who collect Barbie dolls just for fun. Perhaps for the pleasure of contemplating the impossibly ideal measurements that are Mattel’s standard for their flagship product. Or maybe they just enjoy playing with 10-inch plastic female figures.

Even if they are a grown-ass person. Like Jian Yang here.
