black light and white noise

black light

white noise

Black is the color of this month for Roy G Biv. It reminded me of "black light".
For some reason I thought it would fit with "white noise"

drawing challenge - second hand

Two cardboards with bits of text from an Italian box.


In "homework with black square" (left) is a calculation my father once made for me long ago.
In  "homework I", I also added  a small piece of an old rag that was once a fitted sheet.


"White"and "Blue". The piece  left was originally the  backside of the piece right.


In "Bolzano" and "Italia" I've used parts of the cover of an italian roadmap.


In "Don't look back"(left) and "Book" I've used a kind of notation paper to work on.

This week's drawing challenge is "second hand" and I've looked for examples  in which the material gets a second life.

drawing challenge - japan - balance and harmony





Thinking about this week's dc theme on "Japan", for some reason these pieces passed my mind.
Maybe because of the colors or the subject...
Not sure if they are japanese and not previously exhibited, so you've the scoop:)
They´re about balance and harmony and I've made them in 2005, collage, print and paint, +/- 20 x 30 cm.

pink poppies or so

Recently I came across "the search for roy b giv" (the colors of the rainbow),
a challenge about finding or using a specific color.
This month  it's moving beyond the rainbow colors and the color is pink.
It reminded me of two recent blogposts:
 the drawing challenge "nude"and "the summer of color", with the colors lavender, grey and plum
-  "a small field of popppies", the summer of colors post with the colors pink, apple green and dark green.
It brought me to some digital pink color studies.
To see more pink, please visit Julie's or Jennifer 's blog for all the pink links.

Light and shadow


Seen a few years ago, somewhere in the South of France. An exhibition of handmade paper.
It was in a greenhouse with venetian blinds, 35*Celcius. The pattern of light and shadow caught my eye.

The raspberry -tangerine-lemon light of dawn


At first I could not handle the color palette of "the colors of summer" this week: Raspberry, Tangerine and Lemon.
But after some time they reminded me, beside ice cream colors :), of  the colors of dawn. So I decided to digital transforn the  "stream'-landscapes of my last post into "The raspberry-tangerine-lemon light of dawn".

And, besides that, two things passed my mind:
the text of Leonard Cohen: "There's a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in". 
And the Willem de Kooning painting: "Rosy-Fingered Dawn at Louse Point". You can see it here

stream I and II

I've posted these pieces previously in 2012. The summer, however, seems a good time to repost them.

The theme of this week's drawing challenge is "What's that?"
The crows behind my house gave me the answer. "As the crow flies".

the inner eye of birds



Exploring the theme of the "drawing challenge this week, "Inner Eye",
my attention was drawn to "this painting" of Morris Graves.
It reminded me of a flock of birds. But also of their ability (maybe their "inner eye"...)
to find their way back, even after  having flown long distances.

Please visit Susan Christensen's blog, "flying dog studio design wall",  to see more "inner eyes".
Thank you Susan for hosting this dc.

a small field of poppies



This week the colors of the summer of color are: Pink and Apple Green with  some Dark Green.
The're not really my colors...I almost never use them. But I've given it a try...and got some figures
from the last post transformed into a small field of poppies. Thank you Kristin for hosting.
