Drawing challenge/ I

how it went ;  i first painted a portrait of myself, spontaniously,
let my brush glide over the paper without much thinking.
it was my intention whether i would like the result or not,
 showing you this result because there would me a lot 
of me in the image doing it this way.

then i asked my partner to take a photograph of me in
a simular pose (showing him the painting he asked me
if it was my intention to take off my clothes for the photo ;)
the ones of you following me here already know
my work is often symbolic :)

i have small ears but i am a good listener
i listen in images and colors
i love talking to people but i like to be by myself
when i am worrying or in pain i really need to be alone
i learned to get in balance more easily
i became happier the older i got
i like to dance
i have big hands, i like using them
i am sensitive to atmospheres and moods
i don't reveal myself easily but my friends know me very well
i found some answers, i still have many questions 

'I had to create a world of my own, like a climate, a country, an atmosphere
in which I could breathe, reign, and recreate myself when destroyed by living'
AnaƮs Nin

This interesting theme was presented to us by sweet and creative Patrice,
please take a look at her beautiful blog for more 'I's'

Have a lovely weekend!

i live in an old house with old doors,
  all of our cupboards and closets were bought second(or more) hand

i had this dream ;
i was openening doors in my house and behind them were the possessions
of the previous owners
i recognized every door but not the things behind them
it felt weird but in a pleasant way
like a journey of discovery

Drawing challenge/ favourite object

small clay figure, once brought from a flea-market in France (for
many years, on weekends and holidays
 we wandered through that great country, visiting friends, cities and villages,
lots of brocante shops and markets) it was an amazing time full of surprises
and  this little man always brings back those memories.

just a few days ago,one morning coming down the stairs i was totally
surprised and enchanted by this lampshade my partner made.
using all kinds of bits and pieces we gathered over the years
he made this beauty, and at the moment, well certainly is 
my favourite object.

please have a look for more participants at 
Helen's wonderful blog, in the nick of time she came up with this
amusing theme

have a nice weekend

Drawing challenge / Letters

You wrote me your green mountains
wooly clouds
Gold and orange,
your laughter filled rooms
children at play
Your lines painted me darker tones too
whites and turquoise 
the secrets of your heart
I saw your smile
and heard you 

Mano's wonderful theme made me scribble on a small piece of cardboard,
 some black paper and take up my brush.
For more please visit her very creative Mano's welt,
and enjoy our 'letters'.

Nice weekend!
