Daily Painting: Visual Haiku

Nicholas Wilton  –a painter who I admire–, describes his artwork as 'visual poems.' I like that description, and if my artworks would be visual poems, then these daily business-card collages would be visual haiku's.   Bye! have a beautiful day, Simone [et_bloom_inline...

Daily Painting: Dental Floss

Dear reader,   Today I saw a piece of dental floss lying around, and it inspired me immediately to make a collage. More and more I trust my impulses and start something, even if I don't know if it will work out or not. So, today the dental floss got its final...

Daily Painting: Being Present

Dear reader,   First of all: thank you for following along with my daily painting adventure! Of course, I write those blog posts to keep track of my 'development', but it is so nice that there are other people on the other end of the line who read this stuff. Thank...

Daily Painting: Empty space

Dear reader,   I'm back again after the Pentecost weekend, in which I made a two-day hiking trip with my 13 year old daughter! Today back in my painting and working mode: another small collage, in which I used more empty space then I usually do. I like empty space!  ...

Daily Painting: Out of the Now again;-)

Dear reader,   After having a wonderful vacation in the South French Ardeche, surrounded by magnificent nature, it was fairly easy to stay in the Now, as I've written about in the posts of this week. Yesterday, I worked a lot on my soon-to-be-launched online...

Daily Painting: Using Random Scraps

Dear reader,   Today, I'm continuing painting in the Now (as I wrote about yesterday). I have been doing that already for years (painting in the Now), but the last days I'm more conscious about it. Returning again and again to the colors, the scent of the paint, the...

Daily Painting: Being Here Now

Dear reader,   Inspired by Eckhart Tolle's book, I painted In the Now (I always try to do that, but today I consciously tried to notice what is happening if I let go of expectations and follow my impulses as they come). The most important thing I realized (again):...

Daily Painting: Painting in the Now

Dear reader,   Today I painted again on a business card, just as a small meditation before the rest of my day starts. At this moment I am re-reading the work of Eckhart Tolle, as I mentioned before, and it is not surprising that what is true for life, is true for...

Daily Painting: Back from holidays!

Dear readers,   I have been away for two weeks, and have been very inspired by the beautiful nature and rocks in the Ardeche, a department in the south of France. I have not been 'directly' inspired, in the sense that I now am painting cracks and rocky shapes and so...

Daily Painting: Two Stages

Dear reader,   Today I was too much in a hurry - I will be out of office for two weeks, too much things to do. I made a quick collage anyway. Did not like it that much, so halfway I glued a piece of black tissue paper over it. Did not like that one either too much,...

Daily painting

 

On this blog, I post my (almost) daily painting journey. Every day (except weekends and holidays) I try to make time to sit down and paint. Sometimes only something tiny… Be welcome to have a look!
