Have great Easter holidays in spite of travel restrictions! Stay safe and sound!
Spring is approaching, this year even before Easter, at least here in Spain. As the Easter Holidays we all will spend at home in order to keep infection rates low, I’d like to share some spring and easter impressions – abstract colorful bits and pieces to get a little happy vibes going.
Enjoy the holidays and stay safe!
My favorite tool around the house is a plunger – not for cleaning drains but for artistic inspiration….
What’s your favorite household tool? Mine is a plunger. I really like them. Not that I had many blocked up drains, I think they are curious artifacts and I always have some (unused ones) on my shelf. But is has to be the original rubber plunger with the wooden handle. I like to look at them and sometimes they squeeze into my drawings.
As they find them inspiring and fun, I wanted to dedicate them a post and share some drawings and interpretations dealing with plungers. I included them as feet in some of my creatures, and I tried stamping with a plunger using its footprints as the base for a drawing.
Take a walk through a wintergarden, and discover little treasures half hidden under the melting snow
Sometimes I like to experiment with abstract art – just going one step further and play with patterns, colors and symbols.
You start out with something in mind, and then it starts to change in something else… it doesn’t mean it’s getting worse necessarily – just different….
It reminds me of what happens in real life: not always things develop as we would expect them to – and often we find out later, what it was good for.
I like doing the exercise – looking at the whole drawing, but then also look for the different interesting parts, and how they work on their own.
Here I started out with a collage that became a bit wilder as I went along- take a walk through the winter garden and discover the little details peaking out under the snow.
