Another week gone, and GOOD MORNING – it’s again Wednesday… ‘desk day’. My desk didn’t see much activity last week… I was mostly working on the computer. I also visited a fellow artist that I met in a gallery last year. She lives in my town and we made an appointment to get to know each other a bit more and talk about a ‘project’ we might work on together (still in the ‘brainstorm phase’ so I cannot tell you more.) Her name is Tini van Bebber and she’s into ‘textile and words’. I love how we have things in common and yet create in a totally different way.
I think especially you fabric/textile orientated deskers (LLJ, Annie-Wipso, Shoshi, Lynn, Jo-Twiglet) might want to hop over to her website to see her Japanese-inspired art pieces (look under “Projecten.”)
Doing all kind of different things last week you might think my desk is empty than… well, no. I layed my Chronicles art journal on the desk and whenever I have a spare minute, I add something to the pages. Most weeks, the Chronicles spread comes together in one or two atelier-sessions but not this time… it will probably turn out to be a chaotic spread – we’ll see.
And here’s the spread that was on my desk last week. I just added some journaling to the page and called it finished.
The Chronicles of Marit 2019 – Week 12
It’s another grey and windy day on my peninsula… it’s nowhere near Spring outside so I put a little flower pot (Narcissus ‘Tête-a-Tête’) on the table to bring Spring into the house. My beloved bought me a present last week: “Journal d’Irlande” – the latest book, published posthumously, by my favourite writer Benoîte Groult and I plan to spend some time curled up in the chair reading. It’s just a day for that! Hope your day will be nice and cozy too, enjoy!
