social media

i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and if you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.

i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).

currently i try to publish frequently once in a week (mondays/tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

time machine

actually this has been a scheduled post for august 21th. -  due to a blogger glitch (ARGHHH!!) it was not published.
i have been in hospital for 11 days - and it was a rough time dealing with a hard diagnosis. but: everything will come to a good end, as it looks...
thank you so much for your healing thoughts and wishes. i can´t tell you how much it means to me!!!
bear with me, if i can´t answer each one individually. i´m still weak, but on the mend!

art will surely be (as it ever was) a therapeutic factor for me. and i hope i will have much time for it the next months (after desastrous long expected vacations).
i´m happy to have you here, my visitors!!!

did i ever mention that sometimes it is hard to work on these braille pages, because i like the backgrounds themselves so much?
but then, what´s the sense of  a book with backgrounds only?;)
for the "steampunk"-challenge at the three muses i decided to go with a song title from the scottish rockband beggars opera,
whose biggest hit was time machine in the early seventies. great song!

phrases from the song are:  Inside my time machine, where we can dream; Away from the world and all it scares...
title stamped with alpha from heindesign
