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.”
