I've told you about my bachelor-project and it is now handed in. YES I DID IT!!! :D
Now the last task for me is, to get through the oral exam… I will manage somehow ;-)
But now to the fun part - art!
When I returned home after a few days of writing-exile I found a pile of mail on my desk. First to mention a tiny (not really that tiny!) but fat envelope from Marji, who had posted a "Pay it forward"-post on her blog some weeks ago. I was the first person to sign up for some art from Marji, how could I not??? :-) She is an amazing artist! (You can still join in the game on my post: collection-of-pieces-i-have-worked-on)
Here are a few photos of her art-gift for me:
A booklet of collage and wax-paint combined, a very energetic piece.
Thank you so much for this treasure, Marji! I'm preparing your piece, almost posted a WIP, but stopped myself just in time ;-)
Then I received my journal page from Audrey Breed! She is an artist from Tennessee. Since I got into the artist-groups on Facebook, Audrey has been part of my artist existence. She is an experienced person in art and life and always ready to give advice and share her knowledge. You see, she is amazing! :-)
And here is her beautiful and quirky piece of art already on my wall:
Also in my mail was my traveling journal cover I had prepared, to protect the journal pages. Unfortunately it was too bulgy and made mailing more expensive :(
I asked Manon to mail my journal without the cover. Manon was so kind and sent the cover back to me and with the cover she sent some of her lovely paper dolls:
Wow, thank you Manon! I'm looking forward to "building" them together with my daughter! As if that wasn't enough I also received a painting from Manon:
"The Lady-bird Keeper"
I love it! Thank you Manon!!!
Now a little bit of my own art work:
You know I love to draw faces and I'm drawing faces almost daily. Here is one of the latest works:
Graphite sketch in my faces-journal.
The last piece for today is a little mug I like to use for my coffee:
I painted with derwent art bars on water color paper. The mug is from a pottery in Denmark (Fanø).
The painting is partly inspired by Marc Chagall, but mainly it is inspired by Conny of Mix it Monthly and it is my contribution to the May challenge with the theme Coffee/Cafë.
I'm sharing this on Paint Party Friday
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
