Mixed media endeavours – one finished, one in progress

Hello dear readers,

as predicted, my latest mixed media collage did not take long to finish. I added some (pieces) of leaves and some more subtle layers of paper and paint. I am quite content with the end result even though the colours suggest autumn rather than the upcoming spring – but I feel, with the fiery lively red, it sure will do.

“fragile” / mixed media collage. 25x25cm

 

 

This one, with the working title “space jungle”, is another piece started some time ago, put aside, worked on a bit, put aside and so on… I get back to it in between, add scraps and paint, let it rest …not the easiest painting I worked on so far, we´ll see where it goes. It´s 50x60cm, so quite a bit of “space” to cover.

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.

Some colours I like…

Somehow I was in the mood for some nice colours and worked on two acrylic/mixed-media-paintings simultanously.

Here´s the first one…

“Golden reds”

P.S. I got a “Happy one-year-aniversary” message today from wordpress – how time flies…

Have a great week, y´all! 😉

Snaps transformed part I: A new mini-series of photo experiments

These days I have been a bit edgy, could not really concentrate on anything but somehow felt like “playing around with colours”. So when I went on my usual walks – with and without four-legged-company – I brought my little camera and took some quick and spontanous snapshots. At home, I “abused” them a bit for simple entertainment. This is the first set of  a new mini-series “snaps transformed”.
