Because life is not made just of wool and clay... there is also paper. And I love paper. Always have. For my birthday a few weeks ago a got a great gift: 70euros to spend at my favorite shop... a Paper shop.
I love drawing but I was never properly trained. When I was a kid I attended all sorts of painting classes but they were more... free painting. I was 5 so rules of perspective didn't quite fit in my world. For a long time I went into a Miro phase. Everything was colorful and resembling a Miro painting. Not on purpose, but...just came out like that. When I move to the Netherlands, maybe to reflect my inner confusion and mess, I went into a Pollock type phase... standing on top of ladders in the garden and throwing paint all over the place. I found that so incredibly therapeutic!
These days, maybe because I have to slow down and look at the things, small little things that my son points at, I'm drawing a whole lot of fantasy creatures... mostly birds.. or "jujus" like Seba calls them. A deformation of the word "voegel", bird in dutch. They sound similar!
Anyway, I uploaded a whole lot of cards yesterday at my DaWanda Shop. Blank cards with little drawings or collages. I mostly work with Caran d'Ache acquarel pencils these days. I love them. This swiss not only make accurate watches! Also good pencils!
So, here a few... go by my shop if you are interested!
This is Arnaldo. He is deeply in love and waiting... flower in hand.
And this is Anastacia... check out those heart filled feathers! She is not desperate but... she could do with a little loving as well...
A philosophical "juju"
And many many more! There are more detailed pictures at my shop, Florcita.
Please do visit...And have a nice weekend!
