Last week-end was unexpected, well not the week-end itself but the turn of events! The Hug, Chinese Whispers and Bricks & Stones have unexpectedly made front page row and are sitting in the Heinrich Friederichs Museum's "Alten Apotheke" Equine Gallery show windows in Warendorf, Germany. Pull Forth and a few framed prints are holding up the fort inside.
Very exciting to have been able to bring these special drawings out of hiding and straight into the limelight.
I met Ally last year.
Outside. free as a bird but never further than a metre away from us (and the camera lens).
She was a sensational model, posing beautifully with an air of elegance and wisdom.
Displaying an air of such grace and peace that instinctively the only way forward was to reach out and hug her.
Couldn't do it!
Five posts without showing a wee bit of pencil work. Undo-able!
Here's a mini selection of a couple of my favs.
All are special, all mark important turning points, all are small personal victories All proof that pencils rock !!!
I don't know about you but I love out-takes.
Those great moments captured not quite how they were planned.
In our constant battle with perfectionism this side of our art-world tends to be hidden and very often deleted.
I still have a few.
A few lovely unique canine blunders.
They make me smile.
Can't be that bad right?
Over on on FB I have been nominated by friend and super photographer Lyne Raff to take part on the 5 day art challenge also referred to as artchain. The objective being to post a couple of images of your art work over a period of 5 days.
Loving a challenge, I obliged with three photographs I took a few summers ago.
I love birds and totally swoon over birds of prey. They possess not only a perfect
beauty but a gripping fascination.
p.s: In turn I nominated Linda Shantz who I'm sure will rise to the challenge and enjoy showing some of her excellent work :D
