travelling light project - and - mail art




For The Three Muses Challenge  this week mail art. inspired by the travelling light project.
paint, collage, stamps, 10 x 20 cm, 






The Travelling Light Project is an experiment to see if it is possible 
to connect with the whole world in the name of art. It explores the 
power of the internet and how technological advances in communication
can be used as a tool to connect people across borders.

The project aims to collect an object, a gift, a fragment from every country 
on earth - it may be a physical object, sent by mail or a virtual object, sent 
by email. Once all 196 objects have been gathered together, they will be 
squeezed inside a suitcase and become a travelling theatre performance.

If you would like to help to put the world in a suitcase, please visit the 
website  www.travellinglightproject.com/   to follow the journey.

Look on the  map  if your country is still blank.

I am pleased to participate in this project on behalf of the Netherlands.

art challenge 209 - birds


The birds behind my house gave me the theme for this art challenge. The chasing
after each other and their air dancing brought me to this series of collages; dancing birds.







To see more bird related art, please visit the sites of the other participants.

there's always another side















Sometimes the back side is just as interesting as the front side.
I've made these three pieces some time ago and I was wondering how to show them.

By the intensive brushing and scratching  during the making,the paper was saturated 
and the thin paint came through it at the back side and it looks like a stripped house.

I've  cut out the shape on a sheet of paper that I painted blue on both sides.
Then I stuck the shape in it, as in a puzzle, using translucent strips of paper.

The cutouts: I have used them for new pieces and I'll show them later.

daily notes - ac 202









































"Daily (collage) notes" from last week.

I mostly don't make sketches and usually work towards a final result.
So this ac was really a challenge.
Here's the result: every day two (rather quick) collage sketches in a small notebook.
You know my subjects:) - air, land, sea, maybe the moon too.

To see more daily things, please visit Ariane's site here
