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.

summer solstice

summer is not yet here - except a few hot days...
often cold and changeable weather
but never give up hope:)
i created 3 photoshop brushes: tic-tac-toe board, sun and jumping figure;
added text with font brush up too
framed with a texture from designcuts
placed them on a spraypainted Background (made on a White paper bag):
theme at SOC this week: 2x pink + 1x orange


  1. Happy Litha, my friend!The wheel turns again!Love your two pieces!Have an inspiring Sunday!

  2. Ein schöner Beitrag noch von dir auf den letzten Drücker - aber vielleicht hast du ja auch Glück beim Los! LG Ulrike

  3. What a joyous way to greet the Summer Solstice. Your digital work always amazes me, and your use of unconventional items, such as a recyclable paper bag always draws my attention. I simply adore this, right down to the TIC-TAC-TOE!!

  9. Your tic-tac-toe board is terrific, love the way you use brushes in your photo-editing, the sun and the jumping figures make great summertime board pieces, and I love the summertime pinks and oranges.

    Hugs Giggles
