What I read and what I paint

soft pastels - detail of a portrait

The world is dark, that makes me dark too, so at the moment I am hiding in books and lots of art. Art is my daily job but also my passion and my escape. But lately I have been lost rather deeply in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor. I love the amazing array of scenery and creatures that are described and the gripping story on top (for those who love fiction of course, of which I am one for sure)
 
soft pastels - Gouda

This does not leave me a lot of time to socialize in the various on line places I usually dwell, but I will be back my friends, as soon as I finish reading the 3rd book.... by then I will feel lost and sad of course, as I always do after having escaped into the world of papers and letters, but also newly inspired for my art. Talking about art, I am still teaching 8 classes a week and the workshops on Saturdays and "on the side" I am getting paintings ready for the Bethlehem College Art Exhibition opening 30 August in the Cargo Shed - Tauranga and the "Independent Artist's Winter exhibition" opening 24 August in Baycourt Theater - Tauranga. I am also still enjoying the Unearthing studies, at the moment doing a lot of charcoal and soft pastel works. Love, love everything ! .... and again I am trying to find those extra hours here and extra minutes there. So for now, I will just post a few images here for you to enjoy and you can always come check my facebook page for quick updates. Blessings to all my lovely readers and supporters I appreciate you all more than you know xx <3
