Colours

Today I made 2 colourwheels.

One with paint chips samples…
…and another one with acrylic paint.


I started a third one in thread but didn’t finish it yet. I intent to make some more : one from found material and one made from publicity papers.
Going back to the very basic from time to time is a necessity.
A refreshing lesson and I learn every time.

I also continued on ‘Marseille L’Estaque’ :
and a detail :
I enjoy thread painting the façades from those homes. I used the word ‘home’ instead of ‘house’ because I started to see these houses as homes.
When I work some time on a piece, this piece is becoming mine. I put my soul in it and can only hope that others will see what I feel.
But I’m still making those pieces for MY joy and when others like it, it makes me more happy than I already are.

The temperatures have started to raise again. We now have a +4°C ( +39°F).
I will have the occasion to horse riding again. It’s been a long time.
