Good morning Wednesday desk hoppers! How does your work desk look like this morning? What are you working on? Let’s inspire each other: show me your desk and I show you mine… after all, it’s What’s On Your Work desk Wednesday
(If you’re not familiar with the concept: WOYWW it is a weekly event hosted by Julia from the UK. Artists from all over the world post a photo of their desk on their blog and leave a link at Julia’s blog. Wanna join us? More info here.)
After I took the workshop SoulCollage last Thursday I spend all weekend collecting and organizing my clippings. I had all kinds of cut out images laying around everywhere in my atelier… some in a box in my closet, some in files in a drawer, some on a shelf… to be honest, it was a pretty chaotic ‘collage situation’. After the workshop I found it time to organize all those images and store them in categorized folders… those are on my desk (and a lot more too…) Take a look
I did make a few other ‘Soul-cards’ yesterday (you can see one standing in the window sill) but I’ll show you those some other time maybe.
What I do want to show you is the progress I am making on the intuitive painting I showed you last week.
Photo #1 is the one I showed you last week, and it was the result of an ‘intuitive painting session. Now the intuitive phase is over and at the moment I am working to ‘get out’ the figures and find a balance. I add a little paint and change a bit almost every day. In the late afternoon, I put the painting in the living room on the sideboard so I can look at it in the changing light. When it gets dark outside, and the lamps go on, the painting looks different and I usually can see what is missing or wrong with it still, and find out if the balance is right.
#4 is not yet the final piece, but I have the feeling I am almost there.
That’s it for now sweeties… just one more thing before I sign off for the day.
The online art journal workshop Mixed Emotions, which I teach with Michelle Rydell, started last Monday but you can still join. Registration stays open until September 20.
