I look at life from both sides now ....from inside out and still somehow its lifes illusions I recall.... but still I dont know life at all.....

All work above is work in progress
ink pastel and acrylic on paper

kirsten dunst in sophia coppolas film as the young marie -antoinette on her way to meet her future husband

I like these irreverent lively drawings they make me smile :)
ink on paper

.......looking at both sides (of my drawings) as always.......... why is the wrong side always preferable ????

I enjoyed watching sophia coppolas film marie antoinette last night , it is very shallow but so beautiful....that blue inside her coach (sigh)
watch annie leibovitz on the set of the film photograph kirsten dunst for Vogue magazine.

I am so glad to be back at life drawing classes , had fun making lots of quite quick and not careful drawings :)
I am enjoying spinning around on my bike.
I actually saw with my own eyes a hare this week , I was thrilled and feel it necessary to place one soon in a drawing.

the lovely camilla engman is collaborating with ana ventura and it was good to see anas lovely blog and links.

Thank You Cendrine Rovini ✿✿✿✿✿✿✿

I have been in communication now for over one year with Cendrine an artist who I am proud to call my friend.
We found each others work through flickr and just through commenting have built up a super and supportive relationship.

We have made two collaborations of a shared drawing series entitled drawings from our hearts.

Cendrine has had many sucessful shows and publications.

She works with other artists aswell.
Mostly she works towards the investigation of what she calls ANIMA MUNDI.
By looking at her huge body of work you can work out what she means by anima mundi.

I have wanted to make a little homage to cendrine for a long time now and as you all are so aware ...there is never enough time

So here it IS ✿✿✿✿✿✿✿✿✿✿
featuring some images that I particularly like.
Cendrine is an important artist .
She looks very deeply into the connection of animal,spirit and the earth.

Thank you Cendrine for all you have inspired in me :)

there is a bird in her heart

feb 2011

I had a lovely morning a few fields back just pottering and walking with the dogs and my beloved today.
I felt I had stepped back in time as I wandered around a collapsed old homestead , nature reclaims with such force , that there is not much evidence left of what was once a home.
It is both sunny and misty ,birds singing quite enthusiastically .
I am glad of many things , there is always the darkness ...always.

I have mentioned this magical blog before and I have to again , it offers me so much from his beautiful writing to his wide areas of interest , he (the gentle author) is like a bird.
I strongly recomend that you take a spin with him , you never ever can guess where he will go next !

you can never hold back spring and being generally mesmerised ❁❁❁❁❁❁❁❁

ink on paper
jan-feb 2011

so its february all ready !
I am in love all over again with mary poppins , everything about her makes sense to me :)
The film is giving me loads of ideas.
The bird woman in the film mary poppins is a character that I am especially mesmerised with at the moment.
Look at her in this film clip.

feed the birds

I saw a hare on monday , it was nearly white because of the recent adverse weather ......have we all turned white too ??

I am amazed that it is february, although it still is definately wintertime here and I am still enjoying hibernation (with occasional forrays for food and light)
The group show finishes this saturday at 3pm if anyone reading this still has time to go , but I understand if you cannot .
I have been enjoying looking into new corners for my work in progress far I am not sure where it is going .....but I trust it
I hope that all are well out there .
* enjoy
* love
* smile
* make amazing work
* and most importantly


tom waits singing
you can never hold back spring
