Today lets have a tea in my "library".
A tea and a famous weekly newspaper.
I love newspapers, their rustling when opening and reading a lot,
could spend the day with them...
And old newspapers are well to use as a base for painting
or pasting binders for my collage sheets.
With an e-paper you can do nothing do except reading and reading
on the screen is too exhausting for my bad eyes.
The bookshelf in background includes a lot of great books.
I'm a big booklover. That means paper-books.
It's only one shelf from a lot, therefore I call the room library.
Especially I like books with pictures: photobooks,
art book or well illustrated childrens books.
Have a big collection ans I like them all.
There are books, it bothers me, they have no pictures,
because the text calls for pictures.
And so I illustrate them by myself.
Except books I love cats (you've probably noticed that long ago) and birds.
My cat love birds too, hehe -
I could never lock a bird in a cage, they are a symbol of freedom for me.
Often wish, I could fly.
Often dream to have a bird nearby, a little bird on my hand
or a big bird as my companoin. As in a fairytale...
The acrylic painting, what I show today, is, frankly, not my own motive.
I saw a painting in the web, what spoke to me.
I could not buy it, so I've decided to paint a simimliar, only for myself.
It's not a copy, I painted only the subject from my memory.
I so wanted to have such a picture!
I painted it in january.
Not quite satisfied yet, but I'm still in the beginning.
I started painting againonly last december.
At the moment I'm not painting - my working desk is full of snippets.
Make paper work, collages.
But in next weeks I wanna paint again.
Wish, I had more free space for creativity!
Have a great and creative time :)
