Picnic on the Grass

A model afternoon

Performing a ‘one-eighty’ on my inspirational artwork here I am with two male models! Not the usual combination of clothed and unclothed adults we are used to observing. Once again, my fun take on famous artworks brings with it a more serious question about what is acceptable in the artworld.
My thanks for the male models go to BBC’s programme ‘Life Class Live!’.

Inspiration:

Edouard Manet (1832-1883) Le Déjeuner sur l’Herbe (The Luncheon on the Grass), 1863
When the 1863 Salon jury rejected the painting, Manet exhibited three works, including ‘Déjeuner’, at the Salon des Refusés and it proved controversial from the outset. Too large? Too provocative? Too unconventional? For the public and the critics it didn’t fit the mould of a serious, acceptable artwork. I found that Manet’s original title was ‘Le Bain’ (The Bath), and that he jokingly called it ‘La…

Clueless

♠ ♣ ♦ ❤ HELLO SISTERS! MAYBE SHE WAS CLUELESS BUT HER ART IS HUGELY GENUINE AND HER WORDS SO INTERESTING TOO.

Walk ten steps ahead my darling by Summerhill Lane

No I will not be quiet by Summerhill Lane

End of the day and nothing to say by Summerhill Lane

Clueless

Dear loved ones,

It has been quite a few days since I have written anything new for my blog, but I did resurrect an erotic short story titled “No Strings Attached”. The person I write about in this saga does exist, and we have a friendly connection still in a detached sort of way. He says he wants to stay in contact and remain friends, and I am good with that. He also says he wants me to come and hang out with him, but I know what he really wants. Ha ha. I like him a lot but I do not love him.

I really hate to admit this to you, but I will, there have been men falling…

Leaving Again

🏊💦📝 OH DEARS! “I PRAY YOU WILL AGAIN RETURN”. DON’T MISS THE PAINTING BY FRAN HOLT AND THE BEAUTIFUL POEM BY OUR SISTER JONI.

Rum and Robots

memories of White Lake, pour over me like a cloud shedding its fluid
the lake of glass, glistening in the sun, reflecting silent laughter
looking at your toes underneath this cooling mirror, I sigh
the rough wooden pier that stretches out, as a second summer day
calling my name, like a silk scarf longing to feel fingers touching
music lingers akin to a floating seagull in the cobalt blue skies
size fives are stirring to the notes, and the cadence drifting
smells of amber, tobacco, and patchouli mixing with the scent of heat
holding hands, my body remembers your touches and tender visits
sauntering toward the dance floor, I am floating, I hear your smile
holding me in your strong bronze arms, I know your leave is ending
oblivious to all but you, I study your breath, as again, I pray you will again return

Poem by Joni Caggiano on…

A mon père, qui m’a fait de moi une femme libre

🌌 ⭐ HELLO LOVELIES! I LIKE THE ART BY JEN AND ALSO THESE WONDERFUL WORDS.

A toi mon père

Qui ne m’as jamais conduit à l’autel

Dont le gendre ne t’a jamais demandé la main de ta fille

Non, tu ne lui l’as jamais offerte

J’entends toujours Gibran que tu as cité : je ne t’appartient pas, je suis à moi

The Woods are Dark and Dangerous

🌳🌛 HI DARLINGS! VERY OFTEN WE CAN APPRECIATE A GOOD WORK THROUGH THE QUALITY OF ITS BACKGROUND.

Owlstation

owlstation illustration_the woods are dark and dangerous_2020I’ve been making more time to play in my sketchbook lately and draw things just for fun. Little, one off experiments based on references or prompts that I find particularly enticing and exciting. Raiding my Pinterest boards for images that have inspired me and then getting my art materials out to see what feels right.

Whilst not all of these experiments result in images I’m pleased with (aka ready to share on Instagram!) they’ve definitely been helping me develop my illustration skills and learn more about the mediums I work with. I was pleased with how this Crayola and pencil study turned out though…I added the owl separately after finishing the woodland background, sticking him on top collage style. I couldn’t resist adding a bit of typography underneath to encourage the story that was forming in my head!

Sparta Puss Here

😽 💖 WELL BEAUTIES, KITTEN ARE A GRATEFUL MOTIF TO SKETCH.

sparta 2

Greetings trained monkeys. Sparta Puss here. I’ve managed to get my paws on the pooter box while my hairless apes are preparing themselves for something called a Zoom Quiz. Idiots. I thought you’d like to see me. I’m posing with something called a buk. It is a special buk that the she-monkey pokes with a stick with dirt in it. She makes a mess then turns to me and says, “See Sparta. This is you”. She’s an idiot. But she gives me Dreamies. So I won’t trip her up on the stairs…………….yet…………………..

Caravaggio in Mexico City

👀 HELLO BEAUTIES! CARAVAGGIO WORKS ALWAYS ARE MAGNIFICIENT. THANKS TO MELANIE FOR HER REMINDING AND HER GREAT SKETCH.

Melanie Franz

I went to a Caravaggio exhibition at the Museo Nacional de Artes in Mexico City back in spring 2018.

I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed (maybe also my fault as I did not look at the information properly), but they only had one painting by Caravaggio. The rest of the exhibit was about him in form of a multimedia show and artworks by other artists that got inspired by him.

Nevertheless, I learned a lot about his style and especially his use of light and shadow. The museum in general was definitely worth a visit, as it is in a stunning building. Especially the permanent exhibition was great. That´s where I spotted the little horses from yesterday.

Below my impression of the only painting by Caravaggio at the exhibition.
