Love this book mark the best so far. I guess it is the birds in it. Of course I havent enlarged it yet. Takes me awhile. but it is still my favorite.:)
One would hate to hide it away in a book so I would have to be reading constantly so I could enjoy it. :)

Amazing!
I love to look at these bookmarks and imagine how the blotches are converted to these tiny beautiful paintings.

Liebe Andrea,
mit Deinem Lesezeichen zeigst Du Deine Talente wieder zu 200 %. Man möchte fast sagen, oh schade, daß es immer in einem Buch versteckt werden soll. Aber dieses leichte luftige Beginnen oben und dann das kluge zunehmende Raumfüllen, ach von den Farben und Formen rede ich gar nicht, sonst sitze ich in einer Stunde noch da. Es ist halt einfach wunderschön, wie Du aus einem kleinen Stück Papier ein Kunstwerkchen zauberst. Da kann das Wurzerl nur immer wieder ihren imaginären Hut ziehen.
Ganz liebe Grüße von demselben ohne Hut. (steht mir nicht)

You are simply amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love the figure leaning over to see the others before her.
Lots made me smile here. The blue figure opening her cape to welcome in the ? fishes?

Fanciful and floaty. Floaty isn't a word I guess. But your bookmark makes me feel that way. Floaty.

Thanks for all your comments, in fact I call these paintings bookmarks, but in fact they are a little big to be put into a book:)
The blotches really guide me to where or what they want to be:), they are positioned rather thoughtlessly, or intuitiveley, while being concentrated on something else, another painting, that is. After a few days I take my pen and a closer look at the blotches, and then all these little things occur. The Blotch-Universe:)

love your dooles on the bookmark strips and just had a idea for you, if you put them together or how you like and scan them and save the picture and then print it back onto tee-shirt paper or cotton fabric paper or silk and all you do is iron it back onto a bag,scarf or anything. Hope you like the idea Miss Doodle, can see it on a bag or silk scarf for you,
Jill
