This weeks theme for our dc NATURE choosen by our wonderful tinyWoolf is a real challenge because of its endless possibilities. As always having too many ideas swirly around in my head, seeking nature and bringing bits and pieces of it back home...
I started with a simple collage (above) with scraps of nature drawings out of my collection of old books to assemble different aspects of nature and highlight just one.
On my daily dog walks in the forrest my eyes were caught of all this little ? no idea how they're called "leaves of pine cones" left behind from very productiv squirrels and I started to collect and glued them into a material collage
here some details...
Yesterday evening collecting the 2nd round of "leaves" 3 dogs were heavenly barking at me as they passed by, I guess they were concerned about this weird woman crowling over the forrest floar and I believe her owner did the same... and I thought
"so what, I'm an artist I can do that, normally can everyone, normal is boring".
So if seeking and playing with nature ends up in finding the true nature/center
of yourself this is a good thing I assume...
... and talking about collecting on my yesterdays trip to a fleamarket which takes
places a couple of times at a recycling yard I found this old landscape painting which
seemed to me a gift of heaven for this drawing challenge and I altered it my way
playing with the romantic idea of nature, reality and humans habit to
map everything out maybe to feel safer if you always know were you are...
... and hung them into my bedroom and this way combined
this weeks challenge with last weeks. HA!
not to mentioned how much fun I had with this theme - thank you dear Nadine -
to see all the results of all other participants!
Have a nice weekend,
