i am working on a new project which i call the golden circle of violette and the underlying theme is that of faith hope & love.
i played on tuesday's art class:)) the lesson was the wonders of watercolor and then i went my own way:) as always my love for disney faerie tales are undeniably apparent.
this piece is a mixed media love. first watercolor practice and then i started mixing in pastels, prismacolors...pasted som scraps & some saved disney inspirations....then covered the whole thing with pearlescent acrylics before adding beeswax perfection.
now i will add
some oil paints to top it all of.
will show soon:)
late spring with a soon summer has come and i am finally back into my vintage cuteness dresses. i feel SO much happier this way. i am exploring a moment of zero make up. trying to just keep my skin clean & healthy through such wonders as chia seeds, coconut oil, flax seeds & macca...organic organic organic.
vintage dress & bangles
on my way:)
there is to be a poetry workshop happening; re-writing alice in wonderland. saturday may 28th. katherine lockton is teaching and she happens to live here in east dulwich. so here i am on my way to pay her for our saturday to come. i am super excited about this. poetry is something i devour and to add alice to this = perfection in my world.
in a near future i am to create my own little podcast via the faerie tales of violette. one idea is to incorporate poetry into it. i have many thoughts but i am quite clear about the adding of poetry & prose with lots of magic.
every morning i am listening to such wonderful podcasts. most of whom sort of don't seem to belong to my world but they actually gives me such ideas, brilliant ideas every single day...well as does books like harry potter & lord of the rings...but that is more obvious for sure, right???
anyways here is brilliance:
5 podcasts that gives me constant wonders
