My first attempt in making an art doll…so pleased with the result! This one is called Presence …Made with bits of recycled material and rubans…I was given as a Xmas present the book from Jan Horrox on how to make cloth dolls…Well written and great explanations…plus help from wonderful and generous artists sharing their skills on You tube…This is a break from my mixed media paintings but still a very creative and rewarding activity !
Joyeux Noëeeeel !!!!
I created this collage with colours in mind .Pink was my favourite choice so I naturally chose to do a collage of flamingos. Pink is for me a soothing colour and I need it in those hard times.Just to look at it quiet my mind!
I enjoyed so much creating this powerful eagle as I used a lot of layers of tissue paper to obtain the feathers. At the end my fingers were totally glued! Being a child again is very liberating….
Inspired by birds that I can see through my kitchen window…
I don’t have a fancy bird house but I keep refilling ordinary bird feeders attracting a lot of visitors…
Collage painting done with my own painted papers and wax pastels.
These days the climate has been so warm that the ice cap is probably melting even more rapidly … great concern for the polar bears…
The challenge with the “colour” white is to actually depict it with colours keeping the balance and contrast of the white fur against a white icy background.
The mother is very watchful while the cub is curious of everything!
As the storks we are back home for another confinement period…
Collage and mixed media painting on MDF canvas board.
I added a few hazelnuts to the painting as only one hazelnut looked a bit mean.
I drew them on a separate piece of paper with wax pencils and cut them out, glued them onto the picture.
The squirrel was done with rice paper painted with different warm colours before being torn and applied to the canvas board.
When I started this collage painting, I was really having fun imagining what these two cute pigs could be saying. In the process of gluing them with tissue paper I went to buy some bread waiting for them to dry. I was thrilled to take home a baguette wrapped in a magnificent an colourful stripped paper.I immediately saw it as part of my collage…there it is bright and perfect as a pen for pigs or as a theatre set similar to Punch and Judy!
We all remember these tragic images of rescued koalas from the fire in the Australian forest last Summer…Lots of them ended up in animal sanctuaries.. Let’s hope they will recover and will be still part of the Australian beautiful wild life!
