so far so good

granted, it's only day four, but my daily art in my moleskine calendars is going very well. i'm motivated and when i sit down to work, i clear my mind and just see what comes out. and i'm finding myself drawn to watercolors. and oddly enough, the lines aren't bothering me at all. i'm able to just ignore them.





musings stamped into the journal yesterday resulted in an experiment involving my beloved helleristninger or petroglyphs, my gocco printer and some natural linen cloth. what could be better than ancient ships, natural fabrics and ink?





i'm really pleased with how they came out. next, i need to use them.

You are really standing on your fountain and letting it all out. You made beautiful things. Keep standing at your fountain and it will bring you where you wanna go.

Firstly--I'm with Gwen. You are AwesomeSauce.

Secondly--I am in-love with the ships. Seriously, in. love. I would frame them and put them in my kitchen and swoon over them every single day.

my goodness, I'm very impressed! it's ALREADY day four and the only productive things I've done so far was sober up, get to London and show up at work

you've inspired me to kick myself to DO something at last!

PS I love your watercolour of the houses (at least I think it's watercolour...)

Kristina said...

Lovely work! I too really like the ships, the combination of linen and red is just right!

Tin (ni Johann) said...

Wow!

The fabric printing turned out really nicely! I love the mix of colors!

Your moleskine set looks so, so lovely!

Beautiful photographs, you have a talent. And I love the "daily art" calenders, or the sneak peak into them at least.;)
Have a happy 2010.;))
