Not for PPF today, just for you and me :-)

To begin with I want to thank all my visitors from last week! It was amazing to get so many comments on my blogpost! I really appreciate your comments and love to visit all your places and leave a word for you too!
Some of you have changed your set up, so I was not able to comment, as I haven't joined Google+. I may need to look at that, but not now.

Today I will not link to PPF, as I know I don't have time to visit a 100 blogs the next few days, but I will visit everyone who leaves a comment!
I have done a little something during the week, and signed up for an exquisite corpse round, which I am looking forward to very much! It will be great fun, I hope, with a special group of people, who came together, and agreed on no restrictions for our paintings/drawings ... rather exciting!

Here are a few things I have played with:

Small pieces of art for my art abandonment. I wanted to do some colorful pieces for people to be found. I also agreed with Lauri from the US to send her some pieces to abandon in the states and vice versa. I'm looking forward to that!

Here are now a few WIP for abandonment:

For one of my collaborations I want to prepare a piece of fabric with gesso, to send around the world and paint with five or six other artists. To find out if it works, I have gessoed two different kinds of fabric yesterday. Here are photos after one layer of gesso, I might need to give them another layer.

I have made a sketch of a woman's face, which I want to draw with colored pencils:

I hope I will be able to draw her, so people, who know her will recognize her! :-)

And as preparation for the exquisite corpse round I have played with linol prints. One I finished:

The other I needed to sketch onto the linol, before I forgot the idea!

Hope you enjoyed the "show" and now to the real world and the hard work. Wish me luck with my study products! Still a lot of writing to do as preparation for the exam.

Have a wonderful week-end everyone!
