Announcement: Open Atelier!

 This post will stick at the top of my blog untill Sunday, November 30.
Scroll down to read my latest blogpost.

Op 29 en 30 november houden de kunstenaars die werken in een oud schoolgebouw aan de Kleverskerkseweg 17 in Middelburg OPEN ATELIER. Vriendinnen Lydia en Mirjam van Sluijs hebben me uitgenodigd om in hun klaslokaal/atelier ook míjn werk tentoon te stellen. Hoe geweldig is dat?

Dussss… hoewel ik niet op onderstaande flyer vernoemd word:
IK ZAL ER OOK BIJ ZIJN!

Jij ook?
Lijkt me leuk!

On November 29 and 30 an old schoolbuilding – now home to all kinds of artists – at the Kleverkerkseweg 17 in Middelburg will open its doors to all visitors. All ateliers will be open and free to visit and yessss… you can come visit ME there too because I am a guest-artist in the atelier of my friends Lydia and Mirjam van Sluijs. If you are in the neighbourhood, I would be thrilled if you come visit me and the/my exhibition.

Top 2000 list 2014 – VOTE!

Most of you who follow me for longer then a year recognize this logo… and the story behind it.
For those who don’t know, a brief history (more posts will follow later!)

From Christmas to New Year, the Radio 2 team presents the 2000 favorite songs of the listeners. Music! 24 hours a day!
A few years back, I started my ‘top 2000 blog party‘ in the slipstream of the top 2000. I created art every day inspired by a song from the list. Everyone was invited to play along and create to the music – and I posted all the submissions on my blog. What succes it was! Even the top 2000 people picked up my ‘party’ and came to film me, the video can still be seen here on youtube.

This will be the sixth (!!!) time that I host this artful and musical blog party, and I know for sure that a lot of participants look forward to it as much as I do!

More information and ‘the rules to participate’ will be posted on my blog once the ‘official list’ is out… that list is being composed this week and that is where today’s blogpost comes in!

woyww #285

.

Time flies! I started visiting the desks of WOYWW ( What’s On My Workdesk. Wednesday ) last Wednesday but had to stop when the server let me down… and  then the days flew by with lots of other tasks and things I had to take care of (including making new work for the Open Atelier weekend) I guess you all know how fast days go by…

I will try to find the time to visit all the participants that commented last week ánd this week on my blog – I find it important to at least pay back the visits because what would the purpose of being part of a community be if you’re not socializing yourself?!

Enough said, let’s go to my desk…

Found Poetry Friday #29

.

found-poetry-badge

 

I love poetry.
I am especially fond of ‘found poetry’, and I mean found in all its forms… found in book titles, found in magazines, on book pages, cut out words and sentences – you name it. There is so much possible when it comes to ‘found poetry’… and this kind of poetry is great to use on art journal pages also.

I therefore started FOUND POETRY FRIDAY – everyone is welcome to play along!

There is an “Inlinkz”-list at the end of this post. If you want to share your found poems, you are welcome to add your name to the list that will link us to your blogpost.

You can post your found poem on your own blog any time during the week, so you don’t have to make YOUR Fridays all about poetry – you just link us to the post that contains your poem. Please use the url that goes directly to you ‘found poetry post.’

A bistre page in my art journal

.

A few weeks ago I received a number of small plastic bags containing ‘bistre’ from my blogfriend Elvy. I showed you an art journal page last Friday (here) on which I’d used bistre, but that was not the first time I used the stuff. Today I show you how my first excersices with bistre turned out – and you will see why I am totally in love with that coloured powder!
