When I made this collage it reminded me of a toy we had as children. You remember those geometric wooden shapes in bright colors that had a little hole in it? You could tap a nail through the hole to fasten the wood to a soft underground. You could make gorgeous mosaics.
By the way, this image is available as a signed Fine Art Giclée Print here. There are several sizes available.
I am participating in Winterschool 2019, a 4 week design course or -challenge from ‘Make It In Design‘, the online surface design school of Rachael Taylor. We are now supposed to do something around the theme cosmos-celestial. This is my idea. I call the design ‘the sky is (not) your limit’.
I love music! But most of the time I don’t listen to music while making art. It’s can distract me so much from what I’m doing, that it doesn’t work at all. I get absorbed by the story of the music and forget to paint.
These last weeks it is completely different. Listening to music while painting calms me down and brings me back to the creativity. It is like i can feel the musicians muses speak to me and helping me.
The piece above I made while listening to Ahmad Jamal playing his beautiful jazz on the piano. Thank you, Ahmad!
When I started this collage I thought it would turn out as an abstract piece of art. But then the little yellow girl showed up and she wanted to dance here. Then there was the dog and the table with the vase with flowers. And I realised the whole thing said ‘Hi’! So now to all of you: ‘Hi, have a happy weekend!’.
