They tend to build rather than to belittle. L. Lionel Kendrick More naked than I dare to be in the world, this comes […]

Art Journal Peek: Winged things

Art Journal Peek: Winged things

Why do people say “grow some balls?” Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding. Betty White Winged things are flying in. They never seem to be travling in a flock. Always such lonely individuals, looking for a place to land… To rest. Related […]

A million Gray Areas

A million Gray Areas

Life isn’t black and white. It’s a million gray areas, don’t you find? Ridley Scott My love for polka dots, circles and spots is not winding down but increasing.

Art Journal Peek: Pink Geraniums

Art Journal Peek: Pink Geraniums

Another peek into the wonderous place of the Art Journal… Pink Geraniums painted with acrylic, or rather smashed into the journal with a very old and stiff brush. You see roses? Or wild flowers? They could be any flowers, because I didn’t add any details. I just felt like painting. And I was thinking about […]
