Ageing or: Shop talk













Here´s the third of three middle-sized mixed-media
pieces I made this week, all three on a rather firm
cotton and cardboard base, like a canvas made from
pieces of cotton hand and machine sewn together and
covered with acylic paint…
In this one I matured a face I saw in a magazine photo,
adding the words "the lines around my eyes are like
old friends", from a Willie Nelson song – remembering
that I´ve used that line before – and rediscovering…













… her
She has been sitting packed away in a box for a while,
but as she obviously deserves better, I´ve put her
into the shop now…
And she´s leading over softly to next week´s focus,
which will be – Creatures…

So, and here comes some more shop talk:
I´ve opened, in addition to my Bigcartel one, a shop
on Etsy recently, because I want to find out what´s
the same and what´s different.
What´s different, from the start, is that on Etsy prizes
are in $ - and as almost all my sales go to the US, Canada,
and Australia, this might be more comfortable for everyone
in this parts interested in my things…
I don´t like too many items at one time in the Bigcartel
shop anyways, so what I´ll be doing now for a while is
putting new works, fresh from the needle, there first –
and what´s not gone in a relatively short time wanders
along to Etsy (except the hand dyed fabrics, I´ll leave
them in the Bigcartel shop I think)…

A good weekend to everyone...

You´re not shrinking, you´re focusing... (people are telling me everyone´s in your classes, and ask me why ain´t I...;)

You have a wonderful command of line drawing that I admire - and a sense of humour that I enjoy.

Best wishes to you.

You are really spreading your wings in a very creative way, like it a lot, especially the face with the lines.

I grew up in Willie Nelson "country" ~ Love those words.
I really like the mixed media you are creating.

beautiful and insightful...

i saw you've opened your etsy shop...i think it will give you more exposure and it's a good move although etsy fees can get up there..but it's a good business builder and your shop is lovely!

I'm so glad that you've opened an etsy shop -- I don't shop anywhere else (online)!
