greetings from the cave

at least that´s how the back part of the studio sometimes feels

 a strange week comes to an end. I made everything and nothing - not so satisfying

at least he is standing on his feet now

weekend pleasures

hey there, hope you enjoy your weekend.

it´s T H E weekend of the year for this region at least for those with the carnival gene, which I´m obviously lacking

instead I took a trip to the rummage and adopted some nice pieces for almost nothing.
- 2 chairs, not sure from which decade, maybe fifties/sixties (?) anyway I like the shape of armrests
- a little etagere/cake stand
- a small mirror with velvet covered back and golden lace
- and a large pinboard with a strong wooden frame (a little corner of the board reflects in the mirror)

also in the mirror: todays easy peasy 10 minutes craft project:
a holder for earrings, made from wooden sticks, cord and wooden beads

love this Hula Hoop Rug  and makes me think of Annes great Rag Rug

nice articel about bastisRIKE in the current Living at home magazine

these days

would so love to see this film about outsider artist Henry Darger and his fantastic work,
but it seems not easy to get. Has anyone seen it?

Yesterday I watched "Gerhard Richter Painting". Liked it very much

another screenprinting attempt...

 after talking with Anne about screenprinting this week, it was time to give it another try today....
I made a screen from a wooden stretcher, a piece of small meshed polyester curtain from the fabric store
and tape.
For bringing my image onto the screen I used screen drawing fluid and screen filler. A cardboard envelop
was my substitute for a squeegee.

Not perfect yet, but with more practice it could work at least for simple designs.

If you like to try it too, here you find a detailed tutorial with a nice printing result

Enjoy your weekend, lovelies!
