New abstract work

Between making figurative paintings and teaching how to draw 
I took some time to just enjoy making a painting... 
reconnecting with what I like to make, trying to paint without analyzing and it was good!
I like to share this new abstract painting:

And here are some details, hope they make your day sunny!

This painting is looking for a nice place, it is for sale. 
Please contact me for details when you are interested.

Time flies... I am busy with drawing lessons for children, 
and we have lots of fun drawing animals!

In class we also had to draw an animal in expressionistic colours 
to express feelings and emotions.
I chose the elephant, here you see a part of my painting:

Textile and craft fair

Inspiration from textile artists. A while ago I visited a Textile and Craft Fair, curious about old techniques and new techniques on weaving, different types of yarn and so on.
I saw this woman in traditional clothing, wearing a bonnet with dots and a lovely matching sweater.

Lots of embroidery and weaving, and I found some nice pieces of ribbon and cottonyarn. 

With the technique on this picture, the nice lace trimmings in red are made. 
In Dutch we call this technique "kantklossen".
