Yesterday on august 24th I visited the local art club to enjoy their current exhibition featuring the local artist Brita Blocking. I never had the pleasure of meeting this woman but my husband did, and his parents even have a painting she made of him when he was a child. He told me that she loved cats and loved painting, I think she and I could have been good friends even though the age difference between us. Brita Blocking was also one of the founders of the Tibro art club, she started it up in 1949 together with some other people amongst them John Stridh.
I wish I could have met her. She seems to have been a nice, humerous and obviously very talanted woman. I enjoyed looking at her paintings, she was very talanted and I think her favorite type of painting were portraits.
