Snaps transformed: some new stuff

Hi all,

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.

Botanic beauties part III

Good afternoon,

to combat the current rainstorms we have here at the moment, let´s enjoy a bit of nature´s colours in this (for the moment) last part of my botanic beauties series.

Very soon there will be a work-in-progress post of the three-headed-school-dragon of Faunia  … more cuddly & comical than fierce & fiery 😉

Have a good day.

botanic beauties part II

Hi everyone,

after my adventure in Middle-earth, I started working on my next Faunia-creature – highly motivated to sculpt a fun and unique three-headed-“teacher´s pet” t0 add to my fantasy-realm I really enjoy to spend time with.

That beast probably will keep me occupied a bit, so for you to have a good time while I  “wrestle” with a clumsy & cute dragon, and to accompany the brilliant sunny weather, here´s a bit more of the botanic beauty I came across when travelling.

Enjoy.

New photo-series: botanic beauties I

Spring is approaching, so I felt it would be the perfect time to start a new photo-series with those many bloomy blossomy impressions I captured on my wanderings through nature when travelling … most pics were taken in New Zealand (now THAT is surprising, eh ? 😉 ) and Sicily. Enjoy!
