Number 5: Untitled


Min kommentar: Mere enkelt, rodet. Jeg brugte alle farver, som jeg havde tilgængelige. Ikke helt vild med udtrykket, selv om det har været præget af mange følelser. Føler ikke helt det er mit "rigtige" kunstneriske udtryk. Ikke at jeg har fundet det endnu. 

My comment: It is simpler and messy. I used all of the colors available to me. Not crazy about the expression, though many feelings has gone through the making of it. I don't really feel that this is me, artistically. Not that I have found that yet, I suspect it takes years to find myself as an artist, I just have to enjoy and endure the journey.

Post about the work

This is the DV Gallery series, where I give you an insight in my paintings. This time it's about my 5. painting. The DV Gallery site will be updated shortly.

A gift? A flag? Or maybe it's just an artpad doodle...

After a little longer break than I thought, I finally picked up a brush yesterday evening and painted. Well, the result sort of reminds me of a flag - I am not quite sure of how that came to be. I will be scanning it in a couple a days so you can see the full result. I have been trying to get myself into exam mode. It is starting to work, only 8 days to my exam - can't wait until the whole thing is over. What a relief it will be, and then I can look forward to getting my diploma next Friday and I will almost be all done with my education - only lacking a couple a months of internship. After receiving my diploma I can also look forward to a week of vacation - can't wait for that, but I do look a little more forward to getting that diploma.

It was really nice just to paint again, drinking a glass of red and watching a Christmas movie on Netflix. Yes, this is my second Christmas movie this year. Started to listen a bit to Christmas songs last week - because of the movie "The Mistle-Tones" - I especially fell for this song (If you intend to watch this movie then you should wait until after to play this song). I have found it in a million different versions on Spotify. Michael Bublés version is good.
 


Am I the only one who has gone a bit Christmas crazy - dreaming a bit of Gløgg or mulled wine it perhaps is called in English? A heated red wine you could say with spices... Searching images of it makes me wish Christmas started tomorrow! Oh sweet Christmas.

Number 4: Untitled


Min kommentar: Her har jeg gjort brug af samme motiv og eksperimenteret med noget fingermaling og brugt andre farver end før. Det giver et andet og mere rodet udtryk.

My comment: Same use of shape and experimenting with fingerpainting and different colors. It gives it a messy and different look. At first I didn't quite like it, but I think I have grown to feel otherwise. It reminds me of good things and I like the technique - how the colors float into each other.

Time - 55 fiction


This weeks 55 fiction is quite serious. Thankfully I am not in that situation - at the moment (can't predict the future), but I can clearly relate to the feelings our main character is going through. It makes me feel sad, but thankfully the boyfriend handles it well. I could imagine many guys out there almost pissing in their pants just by the near thought of something like that could happen to them. Good thing condoms are invented. Okay, so this post was not supposed to sound like a save sex commercial, but I do endorse it - save sex that is not commercials. 

Moving on - I would no doubt take the same choice as she did, if I landed in the same situation. What would you do? 

By the way I realize that not only guys would wet them self being in this situation, I do believe that a lot of women would at least lean into the idea of pissing in their pants, even though we might puke instead - way more ladylike. Breath mints anyone?

In case you missed what the whole 55 fiction is - then check out this link to a previous post:

Number 3: Untitled


Min kommentar: Det her værk er mere lyst end det forrige. Der er mere håb og glæde, hvilket både motiv og farver siger noget om. 

My comment: This painting is brighter, because of the shape and use of colors. There is more hope and joy. It sort of reminds me of a beating heart. 

This is the series and category Paintings. It should give you an insight in my artwork. This week is about my third painting. The site DV Gallery has been updated. The first two posts in the series has also been edited with bigger and better pictures.

Colors of the heart - artpad #2


As promised I here present to you my newest artpad work. Scanned and so on. I used a silver color, which shines a bit more than I would like through the scanner. Some things I guess you just have to live with. I used the acryl colors scarlet red, yellow, purple, white and silver. I wanted to make something a bit different than I have done before. First I began to paint squares, but I had to stop that rather quickly because it killed off my creativity. After that I just went on painting whatever I felt coming through the brush. Nothing beats the feeling of just letting go and watch the whole piece come together.

Working with the artpad


Today I decided to paint a new piece in the artpad. I learned that you do have to separate the pages before starting to paint, because else curtain paint will spread to other pages - not a good thing. I realize it is difficult to really see the painting, which is why I will scan it tomorrow, when it is dry enough. It should look better when is has been through the scanner. Love my scanner these days; I actually scanned all of my smaller paintings (eight of them, the last on lost some fluorescent colors so I just took a new picture of it). I will use them in the DV Gallery, both the site and the category. This also means a few older posts will soon be updated with new pictures/scans.

Yesterday on the way home from school I rediscovered a song. It is a song that reminds me of the movie P.S. I love you and the very Irish song The Galway Girl. I love the way Steve Earle sings it. He makes me feel like traveling to Ireland and experience the whole thing for myself.

Market trouble - 55 fiction

Today I wrote a new 55 fiction. This time it takes place in a market. Da-da-da. Talk about change of scenery. I did it a bit differently this time, thought it would be interesting to use my latest doodle as a background. It might not have much to do with land, literary, but it is about two people on earth - on the land, so if you twist it a little it fits right in.

This one might require a bit more thinking, because I had to choose my words carefully, and I am not sure whether my point and meaning of the story came across - therefor I would love to read your interpretation of it.

Artpad -The land from above


The first doodle from the artpad (I have decided to rename the aquarelle pad - much easier to say and write artpad). Finally I had a great way to capture the painting - instead of taking a picture I used my scanner - great invention (when you can use it that is). One of the perks of painting on a pad. There had to be some! You can defiantly expect many more doodles from me. It is a great practice form - and cheaper and save space, as I went on about in a few posts ago. Saving money is never a bad thing, especially when you are lacking them. The site DV Gallery will be updated shortly.

You might remember the last 55 fiction I wrote, which was a bit self-biographical. The thing is a very wonderful soul mailed me my bus pass yesterday. I got almost a full return! I would love to thank this person, but the person decided to stay anonymous. Well, to whoever you are: Thank you so much, I think you just saved my month! I hope karma will treat you nicely for a long time. You deserve it without a doubt. Drinking another glass of red wine for you (and for me, I do have to meet later for school tomorrow).

Thank you for making me smile J
Difficult to find a song about someone thanking another for helping them with finding their bus pass, but I found this one. About someone who smiles again after a while because of another person. 
Close enough?

Number 2: Untitled


Min kommentar: Det her værk er meget eksplosivt i sit udtryk. Der var mange følelser i hvert enkelt penselstrøg. Nok mit mest intense maleri. Billedet kan desværre ikke vise den dybde der er i maleriet.

My comment: This painting is very explosive in its expression. It displays many emotions. It is my most intense painting. Unfortunately the picture itself can't show its true depth.

This is the new series and category Paintings. It should give you an insight in my artwork. This week is about my second painting. The site DV Gallery has been updated.

The pad

Even though I have a low cash flow this month I din't want my art to suffer, so instead of investing in more expensive canvases I bought a pad - with 20 sheets, so that should keep me busy for a while. This way I can actually have more space for my art - because soon I will have to store it in the basement. I calculated that one sheet is worth 6.5 Danish crowns, which is like a little over one dollar, I think. Way cheaper! 
Arthur wanted to do a little modeling, so I let him pose on different pictures with the pad - not sure why he was so into that. He is a beautiful model though - very raw expression, haha or something. Sorry, I am bit tired. Tired makes me ramble, so do wine (had just the one glass) - so tonight I ramble. 
I wanted to begin painting almost right away - had to take a nap first after school - and then do some housework, but then I went on with it. I like the material, very pleasant to paint on. I still use my acrylic painting, which the pad works fine with. 

I do appreciate my brain for working even though I almost feel asleep on the way home (from school)... Working hard og hardly working? For some reason that makes me think of Shrek. Great movie, by the way.

Old poetry and forgotten songs

I have a little surprise for you - I have not been that creative this week, so it is a good thing I have some old creative stuff from the past, I can show you instead. There was a time I dabbled a little with poetry and these once are from 2007, when I was a confused little 17-year-old.

UNTITLED POEM 
I just don’t get it 
So why do I have to? 
There is a different way 
So why not take a chance 
Make it happen 
Don’t wait 
Don’t be sorry 
Do what you want 
Find it in your heart 
And just make it happen

TIME 
Time walks by 
Passing like it don’t care 
Twirling as only time can do 
Confusing and sad 
Happy and flirting 
Time follows wherever you go 
Wherever you stand 
Feel or move
Time walks by
It never dies


I used to love this song. Still do, just completely forgot about the song and the movie. Like the whole girl/woman-power thing YOU DON'T OWN ME! Well said ladies.


Love, love this song. It's hard not to sing-a-long.

Sunday flashback


I looked at some old files today on my very old extern hard drive from my high school days (almost depressing to think about how many years ago it was - and yes some people would properly like me to shut up about it, because they are way older than me, but still - time goes by crazy fast when you look back, that is a scary scary thing). Well, I found a lot of old images and this was one of them. I made it in 2007, for a different website - don't know if I ever used it, and don't remember which site it was (I have been through many domains - both free ones and costly ones).

I also found a bunch of old q-links - a sort of affiliation thing where you exchange links with other websites, and old (picture) awards - a bunch I gave away and some I received. This was before giveaways. A much simpler time, when receiving an award for this month’s website was a big thing. Today people want material things like gift cards or shoes, a simple award would properly just be disappointing. Kind of sad really, I for one would not mind the return of a “handmade” award.

The image is the pictures I drew of Johannes Karagas, Cecilia and Jenny. I decorated it with some "special effects" from some editing program I don't remember. I kind of love finding old treasures like these, even though looking back can sometimes be a little sad. Though I am happy in most parts of where I am today. I believe it can only get better. After my final exam in early November I am going to work a lot more with Johannes Karagas, because there is no way I am finished with that guy (Not surprising when he has named one of my main categories).

Number 1: Trapped in darkness


Min kommentar: Mit allerførste maleri i mange år. Det er også det maleri jeg er allermindst tilfreds med, dog kan jeg godt lide farverne. Formen i maleriet og udførelsen er jeg ikke tilfreds med, men man skal jo starte et sted. Fandt ud af via dette maleri, at jeg godt kan lide at lege med farver.

My comment: This painting just reeks of beginner. This was my very first painting in years, and the one I am least happy about. I learned from this that playing with colors is fun in the pace of my mood. They work hand in hand. My first titled work. 

This is the new series and category Paintings. This gives you an insight in my artwork. I am starting from the beginning - the first one today - and once a week a new post will be published. I have also changed the site DV Gallery, which will be updated every time a new post in Paintings is published.
