Magic morning mist walkies

This morning´s walkies was absolutely magic! I walked through an amazing atmosphere with heavy morning mist, which lifted after some time with the sun finally breaking through, lightening up everything like a beacon, enhancing colours and details – it really was breathtaking. I am no professional photographer – at moments like this I wish I were, to capture nature´s beauty more adequately. But still – the joy of such days, especially when you can hardly believe what you see and are at awe with each step you take, that joy sure lasts.

wip 2: mixed media painting progress

So this is how it looks like at present…I added a bit of glam. No way to take a proper picture though…

Feels almost finished, but not quite. Might turn it around completely…

 

Have a good week, dear readers 😉

 

Some fallen trees

These days, a lot of fallen trees caught my attention. Even though sad that the recent storm killed so many of them, they have not lost their beauty which I enjoyed capturing by camera.

These pics mostly were taken during my recent evening walkies with one of my favorite four-pawed buddies, Rudi (yes, he is a dog event though he looks like and feels like a big fluffy teddy bear).

Work-in-(slow)-Progress: some mixed media paintings

So, even though I am enjoying the “Golden October” with many walks and photography, I also have some mixed media artwork in the making…slow progress with many stopps in between, but still… Here´s how the two pieces look at present. I like both of them with their structures and colors and hope to get on with them a bit faster and easier, but experience shows: you cannot force such things…ah, well.

#1: working title “Treasure Chest”

# 2: working title “Blue Islands”

 

 

Autumnal wolf-walkies: nice views and crisp weather

So,

here again some new pictures from my recent walkies which were just wonderful – I enjoy the autumnal colors of nature, the crisp fresh air and the wildlife sightings along the way. Accompanied with one of the three adorable Alaskans, I cannot wish for better saturday mornings. 2 hours of steady and quick walking – obviously with some photo stops (and some cuddles) – and the weekend can start.

New snaps transformed: ongoing photo series

Hi,

recently I´ve been to one of my favourite cities, Hamburg. I went to a very nice & interesting vegan street festival where I enjoyed some excellent food and afterwards spontaneously took a stroll through the old “Speicherstadt” with its high buildings surrounded by water, many of them converted into modern and fashionable offices. Also through the “HafenCity” which is a growing new district beyond the harbour – huge and modern. Very special area! So I took some pics and played around with colors and such. Have a look.

Dramatic skies

Hi,

just a quick something to enter the weekend – a pic I took on one of my recent walkies.

The weather is rather unruly presently with an autumnal atmosphere one day, followed by highsummer temperatures the next… ah well.

I started a new mixed media piece where I plan to use exotically coloured fabric and metal, probably again some paperscraps / natural fibres,  as well as using some new colour printing techniques ..so far it´s fun. Will post some w-i-p soon.

If you are interested – I put up a website where most of my artwork is stuffed in in an organized way (except photography, I´ll keep that out of there, at least for now). I will continue with this blog, though, more or less in the same fashion.

So this is it: artworks-by-cris.com
