boats and canoes - 2

Sometimes ago I've created some boats and canoes 
Suddenly they were there. They crossed my path.
On their way from here to there.
And later I've made more.

Now they're waiting for a boat trip.
These are for The Summer of Color.
This week's colors are 1 blue + 1 blue + 1 green.

drawing challenge 167: trickster

Inside the trickster's head:)

The monoprint of the firestone that I used in the rara avis dc is my trickster and trigger.
Because it't also a face, a comet, an island and a bird and maybe a sleeping beauty.

This week's theme for the drawing challenge is "trickster".

dc 165: coat

Reflecting on the theme of this weeks drawing challenge,
"the coat", the kimono passed my mind.

I've used one of the images of  dc 159  as starting point for a
kimono design.

And found on the web this painters coat here

And also this: "coat" poem by Yeats.

A Coat
William Butler Yeats, 1916

I made my song a coat
covered in embroideries
out of old mythologies
from heel to throat;
but the fools caught it,
wore it in the world’s eyes
as though they’d wrought it.
Song, let them take it,
for there’s more enterprise
in walking naked.

drawing challenge: 163 - "key"

It's about 20 years ago that I've made these pieces.

In search for meaning and wondering why after the passing of my father.

I started with two pieces but soon I decided to combine them.
They're painted and collage, each +/- 20 x 30 cm, 8 x 12 inch.

A kind of key, a reference or a clue, and still good memories ...

And his tool was the Morse key.

And another "key" was on my mind.

Constantin Brancusi, The beginning of the world, 1916

Thanks for hosting Veronica!

Happy Easter to you!
