Some amazing egg art - lots of old traditions and design ideas for Easter egg decorations!
As part of the project German Culture Alive, Waltraude recently had the pleasure to chat with SaskScapes producer Kevin Power.
So great to go back in time and take a condensed look at the multi faceted career that really started out in central Germany with puppetry. Full time, intense puppetry: From creating and leading puppets to the challenges and excitement of touring; later to managing the many parts of a professional marionette theatre, and finally, to teaching and putting on productions in a new home, here in Saskatchewan, Canada.

These colour scissorcuts were a project commissioned back in the 1990s, by the German Canadian Congress in Ottawa.
The original scissorcuts were initially just printed as cards, but the idea to republish and also make them into puzzles brings out the size and feel of the original artwork more dramatically.
On the way to Shaunavon in southern Saskatchewan - gorgeous prairie inside and out. The Grand Coteau Centre offered amazing displays in its natural history museum! Nature also offered the scenic views we've come to love and that inspired both Waltraude and her late husband Fritz to create many, and a wonderful variety of art works.

The roadtrip through the September country side ended up in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan, where the OSAC travelling Scissorcut exhibit was held:
