Some fallen trees

These days, a lot of fallen trees caught my attention. Even though sad that the recent storm killed so many of them, they have not lost their beauty which I enjoyed capturing by camera.

These pics mostly were taken during my recent evening walkies with one of my favorite four-pawed buddies, Rudi (yes, he is a dog event though he looks like and feels like a big fluffy teddy bear).

Autumnal wolf-walkies: nice views and crisp weather

So,

here again some new pictures from my recent walkies which were just wonderful – I enjoy the autumnal colors of nature, the crisp fresh air and the wildlife sightings along the way. Accompanied with one of the three adorable Alaskans, I cannot wish for better saturday mornings. 2 hours of steady and quick walking – obviously with some photo stops (and some cuddles) – and the weekend can start.

Dramatic skies

Hi,

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.

So this is it: artworks-by-cris.com

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!… 😉

 

New snaps transformed: Ongoing Photo Series

Hi folks,

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.

Am still working on my scotsman clay figurine and on a painting, will show some work-in-progress-pics soon.

Some new snaps transformed: Ongoing Photo Series

Hi there,

I´ve been out and about again, enjoying outdoors. Here are some of the snaps I transformed.

The first part is from a nice town in north-western Germany, Oldenburg, with a really well-preserved castle and a lovely shopping area, it has a slightly nostalgic “country-side-townish” atmosphere with cute little oldfashioned cafés and nice arts´n-crafts-shops. An enjoyable place.
