A little love on a gray, damp Thursday morning 🙂
I try to go for a walk every day. There is one road, so my choice of route is dependent on the wind. If I go towards West I have a view over fields and water, and if I turn East, I have a fjord on my left and a wood on my right. Every day is different, and every day brings a new perspective to life and art. Today I took the eastern way. […]
Flowers for a grey day 🙂
These last November days have been rotten – rotten in numerous ways – no time, no space, no resources… For the first day in a while the sun was a little out yesterday so I went for a walk to get some air and some perspective on all the rotten stuff. The sky is all over the place on days like this. Makes the heart a little lighter, the perspective a little clearer; And provides […]
Red colour for new energy in the dark…
For inspiration 🙂 – greenness and sharp edges…
The trees are shedding their leaves and withdrawing their energy. Maybe we should do the same as the dark months approaches? Here is a silhouette to ponder and maybe sketch?
I found a yarn shop in the little village of Atessa – a mix of yarns, underwear, umbrellas, childrens stuff and whatever have you, but found these to take home. The two largest ones are for making shawls in changing colours. Have found the recipe so will be good winter project when the mind needs a little rest 🙂
So I am back from my textile course in Italy, lots to process and post, but here is a little texture for today – dried tomatoes coming out of the dehydrator.
I have arrived in Atessa, a small village in the hills in the Abruzzo region in Italy. I am here for a workshop in textiles with Dionne Swift, beginning tomorrow. Today has been a restful day spent wandering around the small town, so here are a few snapshots of gorgeous texture. Look forward to the kind of mark making this will give, more to come… —– —–
Just for inspiration and a little colour for the day 🙂 – fantastic forms!
The visual is also tactile and motoric from “A woman looking at men looking at women”, page 5
Wonderful colours and structure in my dinner 😊
Love this cornflower colour ☀️
Heard a lovely podcast for my Sunday morning coffee 🙂 – called Textile Stories from Textile Support by Angharad Rixon. More on the website in a separate post. The short interview was with Diana Springall and her fantastic embroidery collection which now can be seen online here. Looks like a great ressource. Also I paid attention to her advice; Look – not just record – Look Great inspiration for the Sunday 🙂 But this little […]
White and pale yellow on black drawing paper. Colour, form, texture, good in a mix with the sunflower seeds. I was very fascinated by the inner part of the flower, the little stems defiantly sticking out – perhaps I could make a brush looking like this providing me with ochre inspiration? Black drawing paper gave a good and clear background for small sketches and compositions to think about. A little stem with a dot – […]
Wow – make me think of silk…
Went to Copenhagen for a business meeting yesterday. Had a walk through the City Botanical Gardens. A wonderful place to get a little away from the city noise. And then – texture all over the place, here are a few samples. Made me think how I can look more at this in terms of mark making to produce the same sensations. And once again the realization, a flower is a flower, is a flower, is […]
Light, colour and shape
A Quick sketch from Van Gogh in yellow as inspiration – love the analogue colours matching the form.
