What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

The Nonagenarian House Painter

Agnes Kasparkova

In spite of her striking resemblance to Jack Palance, Moravia resident Agnes Kasparkov’s talents lie elsewhere. The nonagenarian former farm worker picked up a new hobby when she retired. She began decorating the houses in her village with cobalt blue paintings featuring traditional Moravian motifs. Her neighbors were at first perplexed, but eventually came to appreciate and even celebrate Agnes’s beautiful, meticulous paintings on their outer walls. Do you think I could get her to come visit our little island with her brushes and her paints and her attention to detail?

If you’re interested in Kasparkov’s paintings, check out the town’s website.

  4. Oh my goodness–I totally get the Jack Palance comment. To have such talent–these homes are beautiful. I don’t have that much talent while I am working–let alone when I retire! God bless her.

  5. Beautiful! There is something about that blue on the white that really appeals, isn’t there? I love that she is being kept busy through creativity and I rather like that she is creating a consistent look for her community and possibly putting it on the map.
