Today Christmas is over.

Quite a job.

It's quite a job to put all the Christmas stuff away, and I always feel so sad when I have to. But, today was the day and now it's all gone.
All my tablecloths have been changed, no more red. Now they are white/offwhite. The diningtable has a pink tablerunner on top of the offwhite and the coffeetable has a springgreen runner on top. That leaves me with some colours and I'm pleased. Now, when everything is back to normal it feels good.

I'm back in my studio too, and right now I'm hooked on making patterns. I've just started and I don't know how long it will last but it's fun and relaxing.
First I paint with watercolours and then pens. Below is the first one I made, I love the colours on this one but the patterns are a bit messy. (too many at the same sheet.) I really like some of the elements here so I'll have to try them out seperately.

This one is a bit more calm. I like the way it turned out and I like doing this. I think I'll experiment with different shapes and see where that will lead me.
As I told you I've not made any "promises" on what to do this year other than create a littlle every day, and so far I've done that.
I used a bit of white acrylics on this one. Made some "wide" white vertical stripes and then used my pens to add the new colour.

Have a nice weekend everyone, I will. It's my54th. Birthday on Sunday and birthdays always make me feel good.

  1. Happy Birthday!!!! I hope you have a great day.

    I like the patterns you did. I used to draw patterns all the time. Wonder why I quit? Maybe I'll start doing them again.
