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.
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.
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.
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.
suddenly I got the chance to present some of my artwork in a really lovely gallery in one of the prettiest parts of Bremen, the Schnoor (local dialect for “Schnur” meaning “line” or”string”, since the streets are so narrow and the houses tiny and unique like pearls – this was the fishermen´s quarter years and years ago), very much frequented by tourists.
For me, this is quite something! So, for the next two months, my stuff can be seen amongst other brilliant and memorable pieces of really talented artists in an absolutely gorgeous building, and I will be there in person once a week to welcome visitors (and buyers 😉 ).
The other artists I met so far are very nice and helpful, and my first day there was absolutely enjoyable, chatting (to mainly englishspeaking) visitors and tourists, all very polite and friendly.
So if you happen to be in town, come around 🙂
This is “my wall”:
This is my handmade improvised callingcard holder…
The entrance area, my soapstone-mask on the desk for a day.
Today, I was lucky to walk with a gorgeous, friendly and…ahem…lively purebred Alaskan Malamute.
Our local shelter presently has 3 of these remarkable dogs from a dog breeder who had to resolve his business. It was a joy to spend the morning with Hardy outdoors, and he sure is very very charming. It´s the first time I encountered an Alaskan Malamute that close and I really am absolutely enchanted.
Maybe next Saturday I bring my running shoes and do him a bit more justice by speeding the “walkies” up a bit…gee!…haw!… 😉
