Element Fire

Element Fire   Mixed media and collage on old paper   29x43cm.

One more painting from last week, and I am aware now, that I will also have to paint element earth and element air now :) It seems after a long time not painting I find it easiest just to paint faces ... before a theme really evolves. But the coming week I will concentrate on my sketchbooks again to loosen up a bit ! I don't like when my paintings become stiff and somehow dead. The best medicine for that is to work with collages in my case or trying to "fill up a sketchbook the day" ;-)
Also I gave a little interview at Red Bubble the other day if you are interested. Amazing how few things get clear when you write about them ...

Back to painting !!!

Melbourne Series 2    15 mixed media paintings 100x70cm

 It has been a very long time since I posted here something .... and it has been a very long time since I painted ! But as always : I am back :)

To come back to my working space, to open my boxes with my colours and tints... the smell of the coffee I paint with... gives me such a wonderful feeling....even I don't know what to start painting !
So it was good, that I had this Melbourne painting still there, that I had to finish. And we will see what the next couple of days will bring :)
