it looks better on tv...

...more real somehow.

This is the title of my new big drawing, made after I found an old sketch of the first drawings I wanted to make. I never made this one, because it has two girls in it (obviously...). Because I'm struggling were to take these drawings I really wanted to draw this one. I'm still not sure were to take it from here, but I don't think this is the worst of the drawings until now, haha! I looked trough my other older sketches and somehow I found a few which I think I still want to draw. In my last post about my drawings I asked myself what's the point of making more girls with wapens... the question is still here but I found some sketches which I find interesting to realize. So lets just wait and see. If you want to see all the drawings I made untill now you can check out my website. There're also some pictures were you can see how big they are in "real life".

quite happily

Here are some pictures of my paintings hanging at the school. I totally forgot to take pictures as the exhibition opend, so there would be people in it. Now it looks a bit sad I think, but you can see my paintings very good this way, haha! The corridor is really grey so my paintings works well. There were a lot of people on saturday so I'm quite happy about it. My paintings stay there until the end of June.
Wish you all a good start in the new week!

so we wait

Is the title of this painting of me from 2010. It's one of my favorites. I like the colour green very much but almost all my work where I used it had just not the results that I wanted. I discovered I find it a hard colour the use. In this one it worked for me and I like the faces of the rabits with their very big ears. This painting is also in the exhibition I told you about. On saturday it will open and I'll tell you more about it next week!

Pin it!

I decided to put some of my things on Pinterest. It feels a bit like cleaning up and ordening my stuff, haha. So now you can find all the different things I make also over here. It's still a small selection but it will grow as well. You can also already find some of my older paintings I told you about in my last post. If anyone of you is also on Pinterest I would be happy to see you there too and exchange inspiration and stuff;-)
Wish you all a good start in the new week!

the truth, the lies

May I introduce to you: my painting "for a second that is" of a serie called "the truth, the lies". I started these paintings of animals in 2009 untill 2011 when the paintings inspired by Pippi began. By the end of 2010 I started this blog, so the last ones I painted just made it to the blog. A lot of these paintings I transported last week to a school nearby. They organize exhibitions in one part of the school and they use the art for their art-classes. The children who go there have the age of 12 till 17 or so and I wonder what they think of my work....children are mostly the most honest, they just say it when they think it's nice or the worst thing they ever saw. Saturdy in a week they have an so called "open day" at the school and a small opening for my paintings as well. I'm looking forward to it and I will post some pictures. And if you like it I'll also post some of these older works: they never had to chance to shine at this blog;-) Let me know what you think!
Have a good weekend everyone!

it's never what you think

So I started another big drawing.... I'm thinking about these drawings a lot lately: should I continue or should they go in another direction? How much drawings of little girls inspired by Pippi Longstocking with wapens can I make? Just to talk myself a little bit down (I'm good at that!). The thing is that I get bored with myself really fast and I surprise myself that I make these drawings now for the last two years. So I was thinking about this and I found a sketch that I made at the very beginning of these drawings. At the time I did'nt want to make this one because it's "different". Now I thought that it might be a new direction...but I don't know how it will turn out. Let's wait and see and I'll keep you posted!

sort things by colour

I'm back! I can't wait to see what happend on your blogs, even it was only a week. That's the proof of how you can get addicted to new media...
Now have to do my laundry, even after a small trip it's possible to make a lot of stuff dirty;-)
So everything is almost back to normal and I wish you already a good weekend!

full speed baby

I want to wish you all a very nice weekend and a good start in the next week! I'll be away for the next couple of days, visiting the beautiful city Rotterdam. I can't visit a lot of your blogs that week, so sorry for that and hopefully I'll be able to post the next thing by the end of next week. Thank you for the nice comments on my last two blogpost!
