The Art Fair was really nice, I spoke to a lot of people about drawing and painting. Each one has its own experiences or opinions on art. I sold quite a lot of small items, but no paintings. I brought this Heart-painting:

I've made a series of these hearts a while ago, it's all about layers and movement. I wanted a rustic feel to it, so we made the frames ourselves. We had quite a positive response to the painting but no buyers yet, so it will be in my studio for a while.
There were a lot of visitors and luckily some sunshine, so we spent a nice day on the fair.

There has been quite a lot on my mind (ideas, some worries and a lot of cleaning to do), so it was good to take some time and make a hike in the woods with my husband. We enjoy searching for mushrooms and photographing them, we try to enlarge our knowledge about them. And I like to look at the colours and structures, autumn is slowly beginning here:

The lessons at the academy have started, this year's subject is on Art and Photography. Here you see my corner and palette, and the results of the group:

Until next time! I'll be spending a lot of time cleaning up, making some new bags and key-chains, working on a workshop-proposal and clearing my head, pfew ;).

Art fair

This week I am preparing for the Art Fair in Ankeveen, it will be outside so I hope the weather will give some sunshine. I have made some mini-art which will be available for 20 euros, and I will take with me two abstract paintings made on panel. I still have to do the finishing touches on them, so it is very fresh and new.
This is the flyer, welcome to drop by! There are other artists and makers, and the fair is relaxed and beautifully situated.

Here is a picture of people standing in front of my market stall (left) from last year.

This is one of the mini-art paintings I made on panel, there are only three of them especially made for the occasion.
Next time more on what I've been up to, it has been quite busy, hope I will have more time in October.
