The studio

🏠 HI BEAUTIES! TODAY OUR SISTER SIGRUN HAS THE COURTESY OF SHOWING US HER STUDIO. THIS BLOGGER IS GRATEFUL FOR HER KINDNESS.

sub rosa

Despite (or maybe because of) everything happening in the big world, my small world has felt like a sanctuary this month –

morning in the studio

I’m currently working on a series of paintings on board and paper with the working title: “Spring Cannot be Cancelled”, a series of partly abstracted still life paintings of plants & flowers from my garden. The title is appropriated from the beautiful book: “Spring Cannot be Cancelled – David Hockney in Normandy”, a book full of hope and enthusiasm for nature, for painting and for being an artist.

work in progress (40×40 cm, acrylic on birch board)

In some ways it seems almost frivolous to make art, and especially to focus on the beauty of a simple, domestic life, in times like these. But hopefully art and art making can also serve as a reminder, as tribute, and as a note of gratefulness. To…

BLOSSOM

👁️‍🗨️ RIGHT, SISTERS. THIS WORK IS POWERFUL. IN THE SAME WAY THAT HAPPENS IN WORKS BY MATISSE, ALSO HERE, THE LINE WITHOUT MORE IS SELF-SUFFICIENT

Let's talk

As a tulip

You are deem perfect

As a cherry blossom

You make me feel the nature of life

As a red rose

You displayed my romantic side and that deeply love that i have for you

As a carnation

You fascinated me distinctively

As a hydrangea

You make me look for that peace and harmony in you

Your love is a collection of flowers

Beautiful

And

Wild

That makes me blossom everyday

She wore a red dress

🐚🎨 Hello dears! I adore shells and also this interesting story.

Jane Dougherty Writes

The Oracle gave me a story today. Not sure what it means, perhaps nothing at all. After days of migraines, worries and storms, perhaps it’s just a story.

Painting by Ruth Davidson Abrams, found in my gallery. The title is Woman with Shells, La Mer and La Mère. Couldn’t be more appropriate.

She wore a red dress

She wore a red dress,
hoping the men would look
as she waited on the quay
in the pale morning mist.

Three masts rose indistinct,
pennants hanging limp and grey,
but she heard the slap of the water
and believed it was there.

She would swim, if she had to,
as far as the rocks, and wait
for the storm to crack open the sky,
and for the mother herd to come.

Her shadow would fall, black as sorrow,
on the waves, her tears scatter
like sea foam, the tinkle of…

The Vulgar: Sergi yapımcisi Judith Clark ve psikanalist Adam Philips tarafından tasarlanan sergi, moda anlayışını bu kelimenin çağrıştırdığı şeyler doğrultusunda yeniden tanımlamayı   ve de moda kavramını yeniden sorgulatmayı vaat ediyor..

SAHRR Round One

✂️🧵🧶 HI DEARS! ABSTRACT ART ALSO ALLOWS TEXTILE STUFF THAT GIVE BEAUTIFUL RESULTS LIKE THESE

Daily Fiber

For the second week of the Stay at Home Round Robin challenge, Chris asked us to make piano keys.

NOPE – THIS IS INCORRECT

In the world of quilting a piano keys border is one with narrow rectangles in assorted colors sewn together. Oh, I get it, this is like string piecing!

After looking at the other participant’s interpretations, I came back to my own center panel. I decided that my main objective for this round is to continue the outward thrust of the corner triangles. Using the same fabrics, I made half square triangles to use as corner posts.

Then I got out my orange and blue-green fabric scraps, cut them into two inch wide strips and sewed the strips together on the long edge. I alternated the two hues and arranged them from light to dark in shade.

These were cut cross-wise into three inch strips, which I…

10 Tips to keep your Painting loose and alive!

🏞️ 👁️ TRUE BEAUTIES! BETWEEN ABSTRACTION AND THE FIGURATIVE WAY, THERE ARE MANY WONDERFUL LANDSCAPES. THANKS TO EVA FOR HER USEFUL TIPS.

Ursus Art

One of the visual problems some artists have, is that they find it hard to keep their painting or drawing ‘alive’. As an artist, you want your painting to look ‘just so’, so you want to give the problem areas all your attention, time and energy. But this is a dangerous thing, because you can can end up in fiddling and losing the overview of the complete image. This overload of attention can kill the spirit of the overall artwork.

An artwork needs to breathe! But it’s not easy to recognise the moment when you need to stop painting and drawing. Nor to see what parts of the canvas to leave alone! It is almost impossible not to touch certain areas that are actually perfect! This perfectionism doesn’t help you to keep your artwork fresh and alive. Your artwork needs to breathe. In order to achieve this, you’ll need to…

Encaustic explorations

🖌️ HI DARLINGS! TODAY WE CAN CONTINUE ABSTRACTION, WITH SOME STUNNING WORKS.

anna warren portfolio

The basic principles of encaustic painting are simple – colour pigment dissolved in a hot wax and damar resin solution, which is then painted onto a support of some kind, usually board, as it is firm and withstands the heat and subsequent brutal treatment.

A week ago I participated in a two-day workshop in encaustic painting at my local art centre. I had a small amount of experience with encaustics, but wanted to know more. My basic motivation was simply to learn as much as I could, then continue to work at home. The best way for me to go into a workshop is to go with minimal preconceived ideas, and with no intention of producing a masterpiece at the end of it – hoping for that sets up too many constraints, and erodes the ability to experiment without worrying about the consequences. I just wanted to learn!

The two…

A Scribbly Doodle Do

〽️〰️ HELLO BEAUTIES! TODAY ABSTRACTION IS NOT GEOMETRIC LIKE YESTERDAY, BUT IT IS BEAUTIFUL AND FULL OF INTEREST.

Jill's Art Journal

Yesterday, I started an online painting class with Jennifer Mercede, hosted by Carla Sonheim, called: Bright Color Scribble Journal Painting.

I was inspired by the artist’s use of bright colors in her paintings especially since I am ready for Spring! If you are interested in seeing more of Jennifer’s art, she is on Instagram: #JenniferMercede

One of our first assignments was to scribble with a ball point pen and then color in shapes with color pencils. This is my scribble drawing:

I made a color copy of my scribble and discovered two weird birds so I cut them out and added a black circle for an eye. I added a couple of additional shapes to complete them.

How to do you like my Scribbly Doodle Do’s?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 😃

P.S. I think this would be a fun project to do with a child.

And for extra…
