woyww #276, a dove family and a quote

It is again Wednesday and again a beautiful Autumn morning (almost like Summer even, as it is going to be 25 degrees Celcius – (77 Fahrenheit.)

I will take advantage of it by going for a bike ride to the seashore and take a long walk over the dunes and along the beach. But before I step on my bike, I have some photos to show you. To begin with my workdesk and how it looks this morning.

(“why a picture of your desk” you may ask? That’s because of Julia from Stamping Ground and her ‘What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday” series. Click the link to find out all about woyww and join the fun!)

My atelier is at the front of the appartment – on the North-West side which means the light is ideal to work by – but there’s something interesting happening on the back of the appartment too these days (the sunny, South-East balcony-side) which I want to show you.

woyww #275 and more…

I just got back from the dentist, who pulled two teeth… there’s nothing much to do now than wait until the anesthesia wears to see how I will feel the rest of the day…  right now I don’t feel any pain so I better use this ‘free time’ to write a blogpost. Let’s start with showing my workdesk and how it looked like this morning – photographed for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

woyww #274 – Preparing for the Art Route

On this sunny day in Zeeland, I am inside my atelier preparing for Koudekerke Uit de Kunst. This week, Koudekerke (a village nearby) is bursting from cultural activities. The activities find their climax with a so called ‘Art Route’ which takes place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  I will be part of the Art Route on Saturday, September 6, to  show my work. Right now, I’m working hard to get everything ready for that. I bound a lot of new books over the past few weeks and these last days are filled with preparing (like putting prizes to my handbound books,)  tying up all the loose ends (like: finding that black cloth to lay over the table to show my work on… the cloth must be somewhere in a box after the move… but there’s still a lot of boxes unpacked and I don’t know in which one the cloth is – probably the last one I open?! Grrr….) and packing up my stuff.

Here’s how my work table looks today – photographed for Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Starburst and woyww #270

Hello there lovelies, here I am blogging again!
It feels a bit odd after all these months of silence and I’m still not ‘into the groove’, but I’m trying dear ones, I’m trying and I do hope I will get back to regular creating and blogging soon… untill then, I hope to  surprise you (and myself) every now and then with a short blogpost and something creative…

Since today is Wednesday and my workdesk in my new – only just unpacked and set – atelier* was bursting with colours this morning (* I won’t be using the word ‘studio’ anymore – I have my reasons… long story…) I thought it would be fun to join WOYWW again…  It is good to see Julia and the whole bunch of collaborators are still showing their workdesks on Wednesday.
Here’s mine (click on the photo to enlarge for a better view.)

Tales from the Studio and woyww #246

 

Thanks everyone, for the nice compliments about my newly-designed website (for the ones who haven’t seen it yet: I re-newed and re-designed my website. I also transfered the ‘about’ page, other information and the photoalbums with my art work from my blog to my website.)
