Welcome to my – as usual – messy place. It is Wednesday again and time to get my blog set up for visitors from WOYWW and other places.
First I show you my desk, which is covered with tons of stamps, because I got loooooovely new stamps from Rubber Stamp which I might be showing next week because I have to get organized first. I got some of these crystal cases for CDs (old and new) and another CD rack (old) for more space. Problem is, I don´t have much time at the moment, so I might not be finished next week. We´ll see 🙂
This weekend I spent some time looking for paintings I created about 15 years ago. It was a special technique using thinned acrylic paint with an instrument called „Fixateur“ in Germany. The paint is blown with lungs power and I used this, before I even knew spray inks. The advantage is, you can use any water based colour with it and it does not clog. The spray film is not always even, but I like that. And of course, acrylic does not bleed.
I decided to show some of the old paintings I like from time to time, because I used the technique of layering, stenciling, spraying before it became common. Quite interesting for me also. I will start with „Moondancer“, created with acrylics and crayon for the outline. I got the idea for this rather unusual shape from pre historical cave drawings from Lascaux in France.
Here is the „Fixateur“ I was talking of:
As the weather was so nice, Luna and I decided to take a little walk through the garden and see what surprises autumn left for us.
Dear friends, that´s all for today, see you next Wednesday or maybe earlier.
