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 😉

 

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”

 

 

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.

Hello, dear readers,

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…

musher-walkies

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!… 😉

 

Space Jungle – another mixedmedia piece done

G´day to you, dear readers, I hope you are well.

This mixed media work is finally finished. I enjoyed working on it, it is a bit different from the stuff I usually do or think about doing, and therefore I am even more content about the outcome. Sticking to same old (working/painting)-routine is something I dislike, from time to time there has to be a challenge, something new to wrap your mind around – the process can be tricky but usually rewarding as such.

Have a nice evening!
