this and that and then

This is a detail of another small drawing I started about 2 weeks ago. I can't seem to find the time to finish it, so just a detail for now... At the moment it feels like I'm doing al kind of things at the same time, but I try not to think about that to much, it is what it is. Not bad, not good. I also started some new designs for my jewelery. The first ones are rings with a cancan-girl and a weightlifter. I like them myself :-)

And this week a got the news that my drawing -that I showed to you here-which was in an exhibition has been sold. I hope it got a nice home!

drawing challenge

This weeks host is Patrice and her theme is "Maria". And what a challenge it is! At least for me, because I'm not religious. And that is a bit of an understatement because I think it is absolutely not okay the way religions treat woman. They are not equal to men, they are unclean and have nothing to say at all.  I think the problems we have with women's rights are partly because of religions. But that is not the theme, is it? And I could go on and on and on about this;-) So I thought a bit about that poor Maria... who had to give birth to a baby without having sex. They had to make up a story so at least one woman in this world could be clean and holy. But I think she knows what really happened and was not allowed to tell and had to live with that secret.

To see more Maria's, check out the blog of Patrice!
(and I'm sorry if I offended anyone with my Maria drawing, but that is sometimes what art does, isn't it?).

how it went this time...

I had a very busy weekend with the art-tour, I had to be there myself all the time.  But that was a good thing! First of all talk to people, answering questions about my work and it's interesting what some people see in it... I like the picture above because of the matching flowers in the vase and the little lamp above my painting. It just looks like it belonged there. And second of all it was good to be there, because my jewelery was also there and I sold a lot;-) which was nice. The picture below shows a brooch which I made as a test. I wasn't sure about it, but it was the first thing I sold. So now I'm thinking to make some more and put it in my shop. I wish you al a good week and maybe I'll see you this weekend at the next drawing challenge, host of this week is Patrice!

the order of the day

No new things this week. I'm busy preparing for an art tour this weekend. This is a picture of a part of my studio and I have to decide which paintings I'll show. At the same time I'm making my goodies out of plastic which I also going to be selling there. I already burned myself twice at the door of the oven because I'm just to hectic;-) Below a bad picture of a detail of my desk at the moment. Putting all my pendants, magnets and earrings on labels.

How come you never go there?

...she wonders....

I'm starting a new series of small drawings. A combination of pen and airbrush. I'm not sure what will come out of it and about this first one. We'll see, right?

A good weekend to all of you!

How it went

Last saturday was the opening of the exhibition where one of my drawings is in.  There is not much to tell you: they did a nice job putting it up, there were lots of people and I was just happy that my drawing was doing fine, haha!  One more picture of an impression of the space which is really nice I think.
