Hope your week is going well! The weather has been very changeable here. Yesterday we had fog all day, today it was very cold and frosty but sunny, and great for walking. But in our region there's still no sign of a 'real' winter, at least not yet! Thanks to those who asked about my fingers. It's getting better, but too slowly for my taste, and some days it's a question of 2 steps forward and one back. I know, I'm impatient!
Today I am sharing the second piece I started last week at art group. (50 cm x 36 cm) I cut up a calendar picture of one of Willie Baumeister's pop-art pieces. You can see more images of his work here. I love his colourful and varied work.
I cut the image into strips of various thicknesses with the cutting machine - I still can't use scissors, and then made a loose weave of them. I tried to let some strips stand out more than others. I added some blue cord which I threaded through the weaving and some red triangles which were flying about in my bit box. Nathalie was visiting me as I finished it and she chose the 2 words. Perhaps someday there will a story to it! Anyway, I am happy that I managed something!
This is the original calendar page:
I am linking to Art Journal Journey, Jo's theme of 'something new', and to
Last Thursday the sheep were on our side of the Rhine here, so I enjoyed visiting them on my way to art group:
I went for an evening walk along the Rhine after the group and enjoyed the beautiful colours:
This little group was enjoying some beer sitting round the fire:
The restaurant at the Old Ferry looked inviting:
Even the main road looked nice well lit up:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
