The transition to the new normal here in Spain coincided with the arrival of summer with warm temperatures… so today I was sewing summer masks – lighter and more breathable than the result of my first attempt of selfmade facemasks- and the Picard had to go on them of course!

I found some more dog breeds to paint during our lockdown, they are all done with these nice acrylic markers by #neuland, I discovered recently. They are real fun to paint with!
Due to lockdown in Spain, there are no dog classes, and we miss them really, Lou and I… so, just to stay a little tuned, here some portraits of Lou’s classmates.
Going back to the sketchbook, this time in a fun and colorful way! I found an old box of @jaxon oil pastel crayons, that are really fun to draw with! It’s playing and drawing, all at once, can fun be art?
This year, my Christmas gifts will be lights: concrete lamps with delicate glass that hold candles.
Some are finished with acrylic paint , others stay raw – which is your favorite?
Just in time for the 1st #Advent, these candle lit lamps got tested today… The concrete collection is growing with the Christmas preparations…
A house made of black iron wire goes into the garden as a wall sculpture. A 3-dimensional drawing with wire doing the lines. Check out the pics to see what’s going on at each of the 4 stories…

African art with a european touch…. I got some african masks that where imported to sell, but it came out, they might have termites in them, so they could not be sold and should not be inside a house. A good opportunity for me to play around and do some twists on them…
working on the calendar for 2017 – I hope, this year I can produce some samples and offer them to you…
this year there won’t be paintings, but a different kind of pictures, I hope you find them interesting…
Thanks for looking!
