Well, it's weekend again, so not much art-time today. I did SEE a lot of creative things today though. Went to Brisbane with my daughter to visit a handmade market, and got all inspired. It's a pity though that most of the stalls were jewellery. Not that much art there .... Which doesn't mean that the jewellery wasn't great. All handmade and very original designs. But I would've liked to see more variety ....Call me difficult ... ;-)
And then we went to visit the big art gallery in Brisbane, and boy was I disappointed! There were very few pieces that I liked, or even considered art. Must be that I have no clue what art is about .... Lucky for us we stumbled upon a small art gallery in one of the side-streets, with a great collection of Aboriginal Art, so that was a nice way to end our trip to the city ;-)
As for myself, I managed to finish (more or less) a rock today. The backside needs to be painted still, and I'll put a quote on there as well, but I'm happy I got something done.
The lighting is very bad, since I forgot to take a picture when it was still daylight, but still, you get the idea ....
I also worked a little bit on my mosaic, and I prepared some boxes to be painted. I usually take off the lock that's on there, because it's generally very bad quality and because I don't like them so much. Then I get my hubby to put some holes in the side (way too delicate a job for me to do, I'd ruin 10 boxes before I'd get one right), and then I put magnets in there as closure. And then of course I need to fill up the holes with wood putty.
So that's what I did today. I'm so happy I finally found a shop where they sell these little boxes (the ones I had before I'd brought with me from Belgium). And they have these cute shapes that I haven't had before. Looking forward to getting started on these ....
Well, that's it for now! Thanks so much for visiting! I'll be back tomorrow ♥
