Hi there friends, it’s me and I’m back!
After all these weeks I hope this post finds you happy and in good health – Corona is still here and the number of infections seems to increase in the Netherlands – which does not surprise me, a lot of people act like nothing’s wrong and don’t stick to the rules anymore. I’m still cautious and don’t go out much, but I’m happy that I was informed that I can get back to work at the Zeeuws Archief on September 1st. Although I didn’t get bored staying at home, I really missed the work and my collagues.
It was all kinds of other activities, and especially the heat wave that lasted for more than a week, that kept me from blogging. However, I woke up last Monday to find the temperatures in the living room dropped with three grades (from 31 to 28 Celcius.) Tired of sitting tight in front of the ventilator, I felt energized only by seeing a number below 30 and so I started cleaning my workdesk. My beloved had bought me a new drawing tablet and pen, to use at the computer, that was delivered that afternoon…
… and now, with a clean desk, a new tablet and better temperatures, I’m all ready to go!
In the weeks before the heat wave hit our country and forced me to sit down and do nothing, I created quite a lot of art pieces! For one, I participated in another PASSport and collage project. You might remember I collaborated in the project last year – see this post (with some more explanation about the project, in case you are interested) and this post – and since it had been a while, I volunteered for another passport to create a spread in. I was the first to receive this little booklet and I was asked to also add something to the front. So I did.
There was a photo of a “Fraulein” (= “Miss”) on the first page and I did want to keep that, so I let the photo inspire me and worked around/integrated it.
It’s on its way to the next artist-in-line and I’m curious to see what she will create on the next pages.
I also created art journal spreads in my Chronicles.
