Daily Deviation

Blog, Creativity

One of my paintings on the art portal Deviantart has been made the daily deviation, which simply means it ha s been featured for all memebers to see, and that is…millions. Thanks to all and everyone who commented, liked and/or follows me 😀

Here is a link to the painting which was chosen: Not knowing what lies ahead

And this was written about it:

Daily deviation 2

I was both surprised and happy and got this sense of wow perhaps I AM good enough…yepp I am my worst critic! But this really got my spirits up!! I have some new stuff popping up later today, stay tuned 😉

No whining

Blog, Creativity

After a few beers saturday evening I was whining about how bad my drawing skills was! A few of us in the crowd do creative stuff regularly so a few more agreed but about their own stuff…
So enough whining, the day after and today I have been drawing…a lot…

I have also been dying to make lino cuts, I have been hanging around on pinterest and found so much fine stuff I am overwhelmed! (As I usually am after browsing pinterest) I really like Tove Jansson’s Moomin and her world and how she made a few of her pictures 🙂
So with inspiration it continued, not with lino but with acrylics.

These two past days have almost become my second breath, to speak in running speech, it feels like I have found the peace to sit down and work on my thing, I suppose my 1,5 week of vacation has made its mark 🙂 so I just continued…and perhaps, perhaps I am going in one of the many directions…

Kill your darlings

Blog, Creativity

Remember a while back—> November 2013

A few days back I visited some friends with my boyfriend, and we all did something creative. I could have just packed my bag light with a sketch pad and a pencil but no, I decided to go all out and continue to paint one of my bigger paintings 😉

Sometimes you just have to kill your darlings to see what else can be, I mean I did like what I did before but I was stuck, I didn’t know where to continue. Above you can see where I took it, it is still in the woods and stuff….I have worked some more on it these last days but it still needs some work, more in progress to come!

The time to rest

Blog, Creativity

This is actually the first time in two weeks I actually sit down at my laptop, the urge to be glued to the screen has been quite off putting after my last 6 months of it so bear with me 🙂

The work I did on the latest in-progress update is finished but not scanned in properly yet. Update soon. I have aso been working on other pieces which I will show a few updates on as well. I have longer time off from work soon, until then, enjoy your summer off-screen 😉
