What are you up to Wednesday - part 39 (woyww 142)

How the Wednesday's come and go! Sometimes it feels like nothing has happened in between. Well, my last post happened and I'm happy with the responses. I was a little worried it might be taken the wrong way, but it seems most people do get what I mean. Thanks for the comments, I find your perspectives very interesting.

Now let's get back to the business of artsy stuff shall we? Here's my desk!

The other night I felt like doing some playing in my Studio Book. So I filled two pages. One is a letter drawing dedicated to my father who's birthday was on the 20th of February. He's been dead for over 25 years now. I'm not a person who normally remembers dates like this. By this I mean that I don't really think about dates and stuff and then miss a person more. For intance, as fickle fate would have it, my mother died on my birthday almost 14 years ago, but I never think of my birthday as The Day My Mother Died (insert dark brooding music here), if you know what I mean. But this time for some reason I did think of my father and felt sad. So why not do a little drawing about it? It's very simple, I know, but also very to the point. ;-)

After that it was time for some lighthearted fun and I did the following nonsense. It's not completely finished yet. The white areas still need to be filled with color. I will probably do that tonight or some other time soon. I love drawing shapes and filling them in with color. It's like a coloring book for grown ups!

In the meantime I'm still busy filling the next altered atlas with color, unfortunately I have run out of baby wipes, haha. I have also done a second stolen idea project of which I will probably tell you more on Friday and of course my journal, The In Between Book, keeps me busy every day as well. progress on ROD Square whatsoever, but there's still plenty of time for that.

I hope you're all having a very artsy Wednesday too, and if not, what are you waiting for!


  1. Fantastic art work, such pretty colours and I love your snow pattern photos in an earlier post, they are amazing :)

    Have a great WOYWW and a fab week, Luv Karen xx

  2. I understand what you are saying and agree with you wholeheartedly. I love the bright colours in drawings. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Leuk je weer terug te zien op mijn blog. Ik denk dat het goed is wanneer je je minder vrolijk voelt, of zelfs verdrietig dit ook om te zetten in art of crafting. Ik merk dat het beste werk ontstaat wanneer ik het minst vrolijk ben?! Thanks for sharing and hope you have a happy WOYWW. Bye, Franka

  4. Very Pretty. I love the bright colours!

  5. Beautiful artwork, Have a great week, Hugs May x x

  6. I'm so happy that I'm not the only person who thinks "this is the day that X died." Well, no, it isn't, it might be the anniversary of the day they died, but semantics aside, who wants to go through life thinking like that? I understand your father suddenly popping into your head and want to doodle a little about him, and if happened on the anniversary of the day he died, that's cool. If not, that's cool too. I really enjoy the page you made about your father. Happy WOYWW!

  7. What a great page in memory of your dad. My mother passed on December 31 and I always think of her that day (and not the celebratory ringing in the new year). I love your drawing and then coloring it in with the bright colors. Very cheery!

    Happy WOYWW

  8. Ya see, just when you say you haven't done much and things haven't changed, you roll off what you've been working on and it's no wonder a week has gone by! I understand your words about the date and the memories...celebrate them, talk to them, record your moments whenever..the dates are just coincidence. I like the pages you've done...expressive and cheerful colours.

  9. Love your colours, your pages are both fab. I've always loved filling in space with colour too. Enjoy this week's WOYWW snoop of the crafty & creative desks around the world. Take care Zo xx 81

  10. A little late visiting.. great color combo

  11. In for a late snoop and love your colour combo.
