I am selling my dessins on … pillows, bags and more. Together with Marian Sturkenboom (jewelery) and Olivia Bertus (bags etc) I sell my art at Atelier Sacha Wendt. So much color and fun together in one shop! Come and take a look.
Today I made this tower. It is almost night. You can see the sun standing low. Sometimes I dream about creating in a tower. All day long I will make one piece of art after the other. Then… when the day is almost over and the sun is turning red I will take all the art I made and climb the stairs towards the tower roof. Standing there, enjoying the view and the fresh air, I set all my art free to soar on the winds and find its proper owners…
And I will do that day after day after day…
Today the book ‘A Big Important Art Book‘ written by Danielle Krysa (alias The Jealous Curator) was delivered by our postman. The book is all about Female Artists and written in the inspiring en enthousiastic way of Danielle Krysa.
Apart from stories about artists there are art assignments to fire the reader up. The first chapter is called ‘Play with Portraits’ and the accompagning exercises are about making selfportraits.
I almost never did a selfportrait before, so this was challenging for sure. But since Danielle stimulates us to create without fear or despite fear, I took some random photographs of myself. And I liked it!
I am going to do more with it, but for now this is my selfportrait. I like the way is turned out. I am looking forward to reading and working more with this book. Thank you, Danielle Krysa!
Monday note to myself: don’t watch too much Netflix! Have a nice week!
Oh darling, my clothes are shiny and bright and my heart is bursting! Please take me out!
‘the full life’, there is so much to be thankful for…
This is a mixed media painting/drawing (pen, indian ink, ecoline, acrylics, marker), size A4 (more or less 30×21 cm), that I worked on again with my digital toolkit. Have a happy day!
It’s been a while since I made a collage. I love the spontaneity of collage making. Here I used an old Happinez magazine. There are always beautiful photos in this magazine. This time I was mostly attracted by the structures and the warm colors. In that way it is a colorstudy: pink, terracotta, gold, orange, brown and white seem to glow beautiful together.
I ran into this leftover piece of paper today and I couldn’t help recognizing the mouse in it. A happy mouse so to see. Have a great day everyone!
