Took quite a few walks recently, and enjoyed taking some pics & playing around a bit with the colors and structures. I was especially enchanted by the sunlight shimmering through the leaves, creating a subtle luminous and dreamy atmosphere which I found incredibly calming.
There is a new mixed media painting in the works, which I might post as work-in-progress update in the near future…we´ll see how it goes.
This morning´s walkies was absolutely magic! I walked through an amazing atmosphere with heavy morning mist, which lifted after some time with the sun finally breaking through, lightening up everything like a beacon, enhancing colours and details – it really was breathtaking. I am no professional photographer – at moments like this I wish I were, to capture nature´s beauty more adequately. But still – the joy of such days, especially when you can hardly believe what you see and are at awe with each step you take, that joy sure lasts.
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.
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!… 😉
happy new year to you! I hope you stepped into 2017 with a fresh mind and healthy attitude. New beginnings, new chances coming up to make life more interesting, more creative and more inspiring 😉
My creative endeavours lately included lovely walkies where I took some new pics for my ongoing series “snaps transformed”. Have a look and tell me what you think. I stayed true to my priorities here: take a quick snap of what you fancy without too much thought, pick those photos you like most and just zoom them through some fun transformations. For me, it´s always a real good tool to get back into a more serious and regular creative routine. So here they come.
