There’s a lot to share this week so let’s not write too long an ‘introduction’
and start right away…
Haiku My Heart
|het uiterste punt
verder kan de mens niet gaan
of hij moet zwemmen
|the edge of the world
one can not go further or
it must be swimming
More haiku every Friday at Recuerda Mi Corazon
Every Day Matters – Drawings
You thought I didn’t draw anymore?
EDM #2 – Draw a desk lamp or other lamp
“When my beloved and I went to live together, he brought this desk lamp
in to the household. I can not remember that it ever stood anywhere else
than the window sill. In the summer, when I sit outside in the evening to
read, I aim the light through the window right on my book pages. Perfect!”
EDM #3 – Purses, Wallets or Bags
EDM #4 – Draw your mug or cup
“I drink my coffee every morning from this mug. I use it in the morning only.
Later on in the day, the ‘ordinary’ coffee cups are put on the table. I got this
white mug from the guy that renewed the roof of the shed. The logo of his
roofing company is pictured on the mug. I found it actually an ugly thing.
He also gave us an umbrella that I found much more enjoyable but ah, well,
some things turn out differently than you pictured them. This habit somehow
made its way into my life and now it is a daily recurring ritual.”
The Pulse: Take Two
Last Monday, Seth of the Altered Page
announced that he is working on a follow-
up of his book ‘The Pulse of Mixed Media.’
I knew already that he was working on this.
Ha, guess what…?
I WILL BE FEATURED IN THE BOOK!!
OHMY, I was over the moon and honoured
when I received his email, asking me (who,
me? Yep, me!) to be part of his next book.
Of course I can not tell you any more. I leave the telling to Seth.
Hop on over to The Altered Page to read the announcement here.
The FEATURING team values the opinion of
our readers. That’s why you, when you order
the debut issue of the magazine, will receive
an email afterward with a link to a poll where
you can give your honest opinion about the
A lot of people already received that email and filled out the poll,
which gives us a great and honest view on what you think and
it helps us fine-tuning the magazine.
Your opinion is not only important to us, it could provide you with
something too. Among the people who fill out the poll, we raffle the
second issue of the magazine. We are working on issue #2 as we speak,
and we expect publishing it by the end of August.
So, what are you waiting for?
Order issue #1 right now, give your opinion and make a chance
to win the next issue!
Tammy ‘Daisy Yellow’ interviews ME!
Tammy Garcia, who blogs at Daisy Yellow
(that name is well known to the art journal
community – some people even think
Tammy’s name is Daisy) started a new series
on her blog: The Interview Series.
She will interview artists from time to time
and the series start with… ME!
She asked me a lot of personal questions about me, the magazine, my art,
my way of working and a lot more. Oh, and that one picture ‘with the gold’
is an art piece I made for my graduation exhibition back in 1989.
Find the interview here.
Enjoy Summer, dear ones.
Enjoy life, smell the roses!
See you next week.
