the sisters

The sisters   Mixed media on recycled paper   29x43cm.

This painting has been inspired by the Greek movie Attenberg that I saw the other day. A very intense movie. The two women where actually not sisters but friends .... but very close.
The mixed media in this one are coffee ( as usual...) mascara, shoe polish, ink and a little bit of acrylic !

Melancholia   Mixed media and collage on paper 29x43cm. 

Remembering the light 3   Original art work ( "fall") edited in Photoshop

'Remembering the light 3' is a work done on Photoshop. This is how sometimes new ideas start, with a photo of an original art work and times on my hands with Photoshop .... Something like that might become my next work . I like the idea of 'sisters' .....

Fall  Mixed media and collage on recycled paper  29x41cm.

The third painting after my 3 weeks break, and it is the first one, that I am happy with ! 
Like with everything, painting needs exercise and work and work and work :) I heart from one artist (Horst Janssen) that he would draw first thing in the morning 50 (!!!!) hands, before he would even start to do his own work for the day .... Just to loosen up. I think I need to get back to my small sketchbook to loosen up again and be more experimental ! How do you loosen up ?

Heart  Encaustic and mixed media on paper   29x41cm.

Back at work since yesterday ..... After just 3 weeks of a break, I have the feeling I need to relearn to paint ... and the big questions comes : "WHAT" to paint .... and also a little bit "WHY" to paint ! 
I just need few days to get back into the rhythm I suppose.
 I did enjoy the smell of the hot wax and the oil though :)
