Here we go! We are kicking off the big 21 with a mighty triptych "3 WOMEN", which has naturally arisen from my inspiration on Facebook. Among my connections I have discovered two unrelated ladies, who have posted a photograph of them selves in bathtub. Both have agreed with my inquiry about using their photographs in my paintings and now, we are starting a very exciting project, where I finally include living beings as part of my inspiration and collaboration. The January is almost over and we have 2 of them done. The 3rd lady is a mystery....a wild cart. I cannot wait to show you the whole set of mysterious water nymphs in their entire beauty.

Not only can I be proud of his literary finesse which he puts into his every word, but also to consider him our friend. The main theme of the graphic made for this book will be also made to a large size painting, which will remain in family posession.

After 80 years, the painting of the Blessed Ceslaus, O.P (Czesław Odrowąż, patron of the Sedlnitzky family) will return to the Bílovec chateau to protect this ancient aristocratic mansion. Thanks to the combined forces of Mr. Castellan Eduard Valeš and the renowned painter Rosana de Montfort this task will now materialise.
A blissful idea to return the painting of the bl. Ceslaus back to the chateau was born at the end of this summer, when the chateau acquired a beautiful baroque frame into its collections. A frame without a picture is already asking for a valuable piece of art.
The task, albeit difficult, was taken up by the painter Rosana de Montfort, who after 27 years abroad has returned to the Czech homeland. She has been painting since the age of four and it was the study of the old masters that led her to a successful artistic future.
It was at the very same chateau in Bílovice that she had an exhibition of her paintings this year, showing not only modern works but also paintings in the nostalgic style of ancient centuries.
The picture is over 2 meters tall and is painted with oil paints on linnen. Unfortunately, only smaller digital photograph is used for the reproduction, however as the work progresses, the image will be very close to the original. The whole process lasted 4 months and is approaching the grand finale.
On December 7, 2019, the Dean of Bílovec P. Ing. Mgr. Lumír Tkáč will bless the painting after it has been revealed. After that the members of the Chateau Bílovec Guard hang the picture in its place in the Great Dining Room of the Chateau, where the picture of the patron of the Sedlnitzky family will be presented to the public and become part of the chateau collections.
