Firda is ready to fly


my contribution to Frida's book is done. It was inspired by Frida's preferred topics already used by the others: heart, flight, leafs... Especially I was thinking about "Self-portrait with monkey", "Self-portrait in colier of blackthorn", "Self-portrait at the boarder between Mexico and US"and "Henri Ford Hospital".

Ready to send to Ella in the coming days.

Book for Melissa


I think it make sense to post it separately.
We know that Melissa’s book is gone to Tim and that she cannot get it back. I hope that everything is ok with Tim and he will answer….

In the meantime I think it will be nice if we start a new moly for Melissa. As I already said, I’m ready to buy and start this book if you guys will participate in the drawing. I already know that Barbara is ok to take part. Can you pls let me know if ok for you? If we all agree on it, I think Melissa should give the theme J

A great day to everyone,

Alechinsky is on the way to Slovakia!

I got really interested in Alechinsky's theories and I did some reading about them. There is a book on Google Books which goes into some details about his use of colour, line and text. What I decided to do with my entry was to progress from fairly figurative drawing into more abstract shapes (which often marked his art). All in all, I felt that the metaphor of Lodz, the city once called a Promised Land was not compensated.
