Abundance ritual

Abundance ritual, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

My private abundance ritual this week. It was time for me to do that, spending to much money on nice things lately.

Later that day, I've got asked to make a little window installation for Signe. This Saturday I'll start working on it.
And a nice shop wants to sell some of my work for me :-)

That's true abundance to me, to be able to do the things I love.
Try new things, explore new worlds.
I just love to live my life.

It's Oh So Quiet

It's a grey and moist day. In my head there are heavy fluffy clouds, it's fine with me as long as I can stay inside my cosy studio. Instead of sleeping I've read a novel last night ; Elizabeth Noble - The reading group.
A group of five women in a little English town, and their life drama. It's well written and a nice read. And I love the beginning of each chapter with excerpts from the novels the group reads. How I love to read in books about books.

In my deepest darkest hours that's one of the things that keeps me going; the knowledge that there are thousands of great books still to read. Beside good sex, chocolate and my lovely daughter :-)
And art, I keep on thinking about the diamond skull from Damian Hirst. Money wise it's such a incredible thing, I like it for being over the top and still so spiritual. Such an ode to the love for life and the divinity within humans to me.

From tonight until Sunday night on a local tv-station (Rtv Parkstad Limburg) there will be a six minutes item about my art and me. The photo above was taken last Wednesday while waiting for the team to arrive. I already saw the trailer, it was really colourful and I must say I look sweeter on film than I imagined :-). It's not that I say deep thoughts about my work, but as a first acquaintance to my work and me it's alright. And so nice they made it, if it's possible I'll put the trailer on my blog soon.

Love from my fluffy head and joyful heart.

Parkstad Atelierroute 2007

I'm participating in the Parkstad atelierroute for the first time. Last Friday night was the opening in Kunstencentrum Signe. I had a fine evening, and met some nice artists. There are 61 local artists, and in the gallery you can see one piece of each. My green fluffy eye-plant is there.

I really liked the first weekend, there were about 40 visitors, they seemed to be nicely surprised about my art and the studio. And enjoyed the products of my new hobby; backing.
One visitor called my art joyful and naughty, that's the way I like it ;-)

During one or two nights in the month, I can't sleep. Mostly around the full moon. To much ideas and energy bubbling in me.
I like these nights and mostly spend my time to make some drawings. This embroidered wolf man is a result from a hot sleepless summer night. The Little Red Riding hood figurine at first stood in front of it on my home altar, one day I turned it around, and the whole story changed...
