The Big Draw Day 8: I went to the market this morning, and afterwards while waiting for the "Fromagerie" (cheese-shop) to open, I had a café crème and a tartine beurré ( french white bred with butter) and draw the inside of the nice Café. More people were sitting outside and some minutes after I draw the outlines of the sketch, lots of people came in to have a coffee while standing at the bar, but it was too late to draw them "in":)
Exhibition of three textile works in my husband's company: He took pictures yesterday, and will take more tomorrow at the opening of the exhibition. The organizers hang the 3 pieces right at the entrance together with sculptures, cause they do not fit into the rest of the exhibited artwork. I thought that they did a nice job, cause I love the little buffalo-sculpture:)
I showed you one spiritpocket/vessel and the watching spirit months ago, when both were almost finished. The second one I finished only a week ago.
Vessel 1 50 x 60 (19 x 23") - Palm tree bark, Silk, linnen thread, acrylic and textile paints
Vessel 2 60 x 80 (23 x 31") - Palm tree bark, Silk, thin copper wire, acrylic and textile paints
Watching Spirit 50 x 60 (19 x 23") - Cotton fabric, acrylic paint, goldmetallic thread, dyed silkthread, textile paint,
For the hanging I used bamboo branches.
