(Nederlandse volgers die het lastig vinden om Engels te lezen: ik kan vertalen.nu aanraden om de teksten te vertalen, deze vertaalsite gebruik ik zelf en is vaak accurater dan google translate. Je kunt je ook abonneren op mijn maandelijkse, Nederlandstalige nieuwsbrief.)
A few weeks ago I asked my Dutch followers if they had a problem reading my blog in English, and the English blogreaders if they would have a problem if I started blogging in Dutch… from the responses I could conclude that most Dutch people understand and read English well, but that my English followers – although most of them very sweetly stated that they would translate the texts – would have a bigger problem with it. This has made me decide that I will continue to write my blog in English.
Today is Wednesday, the day that creative bloggers ‘get together’ virtually to share photos of their desks and talk about what they’re up to… I joined this tribe every Wednesday for many years but since 2019 I only dip in occasionally, because I have a daytime job to go to on Wednesdays. However, I write (and schedule) a blogpost every now and then because I’ve known and followed these ladies for so long, I want to stay in touch and visit their blogs from time to time. So hi there deskers, I hope to visit you over the past days to see how you’re doing!
My desk today shows what I was working on last weekend… another Chronicles art journal spread. It lays there as shown to finish in the next days.
Perhaps you saw in a previous blog post that I created more space in my studio by throwing out the guest bed, and that I used that extra space to set up an easel. I put on a large canvas that already had many layers but still showed ‘more or less white’. For two months, that canvas stayed there and challenged me until last week. I suddenly got tired of it staring at me all the time… I took a piece of charcoal and broke “the curse of the white canvas” by drawing a line and a circle on it… “There you have it, I started something!” The day after, I splattered some paint on it too. Will I do more? (and when?) We’ll see…
And of course I also created some spreads in my good old art journal – after all, creating in a book is my safe haven!
