Monster!


this weeks theme at Illustration Friday is MONSTER!

This tiny painting (10x10cm) is nearly 2 years old, but I thought it fits. I was inspired by a poem with the title "Silvester bei den Kannibalen" (New year´s eve with the cannibals) of the famous german writer Joachim Ringelnatz (1883-1934).

being hip like Vivienne Westwood


hello my dear readers,
did you wonder why I was so quiet in the last weeks? Well, I had to take a break from blogging. I needed time to think about this and that and about fashion style. I´m not a fashion victim, but I love to look at people and sheeps (in the following I will call them sheople) that have their own style, sheople who give a s..t (pardon) on what other sheople could think. Individual and eccentric

sheople who are not to shy to wear colors (btw. I wear blue...)...... but blue color alone does not make an enfant terrible.
I would love to visit the Vivienne Westwood exhibition in Duesseldorf. Maybe this fires my imagination in creating my own fashion style.

Do not miss to visit these links from art for housewifes:

do you smell the spring?


I think spring has arrived. While I drink my first coffee this morning I sit there with the terrace door open, listening to the birds singing and smelling the spring....

how about building a bird´s house?

Symbolons

NEW WORK:
I am very interested in signs and symbols of different cultures. So at the end of 2004 I started with a series of paintings called "Symbolons". This series is an ongoing process, I love to work on these small paintings (30cm x 30 cm). There are so many ways to combine them. And it´s fun to play with them. You can arrange many "Symbolons" to one big painting or put just a few of them in a row. Now I am at a point of the process they change a bit.

SPT - Self Portrait Tuesday - time

SPT-theme for March: documentation of time.
I made the pictures before reading the whole instruction for this month challenge *s..t!*
So I didn´t get that we should take pictures every day of a week and post the images at the end of the week. But I wanted to post this image anyway.
A great book I had ordered arrived today by mail: Eva Hesse, a catalogue of her exhibition in Wiesbaden 2002. I can´t remember having ever heared of Eva Hesse before reading about her in Keri´s Blog. I became intrigued about Eva Hesse and I looked for more information about this extraordinary artist, who died at the age of only 34.
