So I found one and started drawing, and it was only then that I realized I was drawing on a map of Belgium :-) And what's more: the town where I'm living now and my birth town is on there! Of course I had to bring that out somehow. It ended up in a pussy hat and I drew a little flower around it. Here it is:
I live very close to the point where 3 countries meet: Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. And on this map is also a part of France. And Luxembourg of course. That's a good start for International Women's Day I think ... :-)
Here is the complete spread:
I love that quote and have been wanting to use it for a while now. What better moment than now, right!?
And then I finally started a new large canvas again. Since I don't have a separate studio in this new house, and since these canvases are so huge I only bring them out when I want to work on one, I didn't have any leftover paint on there yet. So for the first time in a long time I had to start with a completely blank canvas. I decided to start in the same way as on our toilet walls: roll different blocks of colour next to eachother.
Then I added some collage:
and then started playing with stencils and a bit of spray inks.
This is where I am now. Not sure yet whether this'll turn into an intuitive painting or into a negative space painting. That'll depend on how the next layers evolve I guess ...
That's it for now! Except for my funnies of course :-)
And a few to think about ...
I'm linking this post to that wonderful group of artists over at Paint Party Friday. Have a look over there and play along if you want!
Thanks so much for your visit! Have a great day, and I wish you peace and joy for the coming weekend ♥ ♥ ♥
