I have a holiday ahead of me and am determined to find the time to finish my two handsome faunian fauns. So keep an eye on this space – there will be news from Faunia in a week or so. The last weeks were too tiresome for me to seriously interact with my muse. At least I took some photos on yesterday´s stroll with my beloved four-pawed-buddy Nando, and having my camera with me I also captured some (for me) everyday-views and quickly played around with colours to “jazz them up”. I really intend to take my camera with me more often, because then I take in my environment in a more intense way, especially when I walk around areas I find extremely familiar and normally would not pay attention to details. And – as you might have noticed – I find animals very inspiring, how they act and how they look, so there will be more of that in my blog´s “photo-corner”. But behold – this will not turn into a sole photo-blog ;-), as there are too many interesting areas in creativity to explore…
What about you, dear readers, what is your personal method of inspiration? How do you get yourself into a creative mood to start with a creative project, and keep up with it until it´s finished? I´d love to hear from you.
yes, it´s been a while (again!) since the last blogpost … life is busy and stressful at the moment and does not really leave much (head-) room for highly creative activities. But none the less, I´ve been sculpting along on the two brother-fauns (there will be a work-in-progress-report very soon) and taking my regular and always beautiful dog walks out in the country. Here are some pics – fresh from today´s stroll through nature, taken and transformed as usual in a completely spontanous way.
Those of you who know me personally and / or have been following this blog for a while, know that I love dogs very much and go for walks regularly with lovely and adorable shelter dogs. As Christmas is near, quite a few people want to get a puppy as a present. In search for a fourlegged new family member, still too many look at the wrong places and buy a puppy from illegal puppy traders. Believe me – I´d love to have a dog myself, and of course I love puppies, but…
This short animation film caught my attention and even though it´s only available in German, you´ll get the message even if you are not familiar with the language. I know and support the animal welfare organisation that put the film online (www.Vier-Pfoten.org), and I find their work VERY important.
There will be another short blogpost before Christmas – until then: be well and don´t let the pre-Christmas-madness harm you.
I made this sweet guy some time ago, from soapstone…his horns are made of sculpting clay. Iespecially like his facial Expression, I find it very Bison bull-like ;-).
I still am in the process of sculpting and finishing a full-body-sculpture of Rufus, the coati, Dougal the waterdragon and the yet name- and genderless waterfairy. But not long and they´ll be online, I am keen to get it done 😉
