Haiku & Monotypes
The top 2000 party has been reviewed, my blog has been cleaned and the last Chronicles pages from 2012 has been showed… I arrived in the present and am ready to pick up the routine again!
You know what that means at the end of the week, don’t you?
Haiku My Heart Friday!
Here’s the latest haiku that I found in my book case
|Ik herinner mij
De hond met de blauwe tong
De laatste eenhoorn
The dog that had a blue tongue
The last unicorn
I did a bit of a ‘free translation’ to make the syllables fit in English.
The first two book titles are much simpler then my translation…
“I remember” and “The dog with the blue tongue” are more accurate but
I like to get the syllables right… I’m a hairsplitter

Just before Christmas, I made a gelatin plate so I could use it to create mono types for the top 2000 party. I created mono types not only for the music-inspired art (btw, all my top 2000 pages can be viewed here) but made some ‘free art’ as well. (Oh, and the gelatin plate is still holding up in the fridge – I think I will play with it some more this weekend before it falls apart.)
Anyway, here are some of the mono types I made. (I put them together in the picture, you can view them all separate in my gallery)
“Top of the World”
After weeks of grey skies and rain, the sun is shining today (but temperatures dropped radically! From 10 Celsius/50 Fahrenheit to freezing!) I better take advantage of the good light to spend the rest of the day creating. My head is overflowing with new ideas, so I hope the weather/light will be like this all weekend… it’s so much nicer to create in good daylight then in the grey with poor (yellow) lamplight…
I hope the weekend brings you clear sight as well.
Look around and enjoy what surrounds you.
See you next week, dear ones.
Oh, and because the sun is shining: some shameless promotion
