First try at ink

 Click image to enlarge!
Had some fun, again!
It is kind of, strange, earlier there was NEVER any activity for us retired people! Ever. Babies was invited to painting sessions at the exhibitions. They "painted" with natural colors. Like blueberry and other eatable colors. But never my generation.
Honestly it pissed me off. So I let them know what I thought. As often as I could. This spring has totally changed. 

First there was the really fun one where we created our art and printed it. That was 4 times with "Open workshop" for everybody. Next out was last week when everyone was invited to create art outdoors. That´s when I tried spray-paint. That was fun. Too bad I can´t do it at home. 

Finally this week and two more weeks we are invited to the Arthalls storageroom. There are lots of fun things to try. Mostly this has been used for school-classes and such. But now everyone are welcomed to have fun. What I show you below is what I created with ink yesterday. I had noticed the rolls of tiny nets so I took some and used to create texture with the ink. 

Sadly I catched a cold and are now coughing and have a fever. Not that high as I manage to create this post. I will be able to have more fun next week. Hopefully!

  5. Your ink artwork is lovely. I am sorry to hear that you are unwell. Wishing you a speedy recovery.


  6. Your art is wonderful ... I love the texture :) Not bad for a first time, right? So glad that you inspired somebody to include the older generation in their activities ... Happy for you. I think you will find all kinds of new ideas to stimulate your already creative mind. Great post, Monica ...
