The start of a new project , the making of ACEO cards !

I've decided to make some ACEO cards (  http://www.ebay.com/gds/So-whats-an-ACEO-For-the-art-collector-in-all-of-us-/10000000002346954/g.html) 
it's a real challenge for me working so small and finding topics so I did some try outs as you can see here :








   I hope you all can find something to do that you like as much as I did in making these small cards .

About drawing, 20 minutes a day and Sketchbookskool

I am doing a lot of stuff lateley f.ex. last  summer I followed some interesting Art Klasses from the https://sketchbookskool.com/ and so I happened to known the lovely Michael Nobbs who was one of the amazing teachers . You can find out more about his way of life and ideas here http://www.sustainablycreative.com/ you really need to take a look .
I now subscribed for his "20minutes a Day" Klass learn more about this course here http://www.sustainablycreative.com/magic-20minutes/ as I cannot explain it better than Michael himself . For my "20 Minutes a Day" project I started to make ACEO cards (http://www.ebay.com/gds/So-whats-an-ACEO-For-the-art-collector-in-all-of-us-/10000000002346954/g.html 
an idea I thought about  for quit some time but for one reason or another I never started and now with the 'gentle' help of Michaels course I made the first ones , I made the cards myself with the help of this little 'stansmachine' in good quality aquarelpaper .
 To distract myself I played a few songs on my guitar which makes me always happy and that's what life is all about !

Moleskine Sketchbook pleasure and RIP Leonard Cohen.


I just started to make some pencildrawings in my small Moleskine sketchbook when I heard the sad news about Leonard Cohen so obvious that I felt the need of making a little tribute to him . I love to play his songs on my guitar due to the beautiful lyrics they are certainly worth learning them to play . Hallelujah !

My new painting "Do you think we lost our natural Guide?"

"Do you think we lost our natural Guide ? " oil on canvas 60x80 cm


In former times when we wanted to discover new places we had to rely on maps and our inner guide and we left more to chances,  these days  we depend on technical gadgets such as GPS, google maps etc. and I wonder how the use of mechanism will influence the human nature. Where are the real adventurers among us ?
