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"

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.

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.

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 and
- "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.

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

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".

This week the colors of summer are Red, Royal Blue andLight Blue. I often use blue in different tones. This is a painted collage from some time ago, mainly blue with some red. To see more on this theme, please visit Kristin's bloghere. Thank you Kristin for hosting this "royal" summer of color.
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.
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.
