Houses, oh houses, the place we call home, we make our nest, our sanctuary.
I seem to have a lot of houses on my mind...I dream about them even.
This is one that just appeared when I started playing on some fresco-plaster prepped page in my journal. Also, I am working on a commission with a house and of course I made this mixed media work back in March this year, a work I still love dearly, but the house is not ours, so....

"our Sanctuary" - mixed media on wood
 ... my personal wish is to one day buy a home for the family, so that we can just stay and settle down a bit. After all the moving here and there after the quakes I feel the need for some "stable footing" Fingers crossed I find a way to make this wish come true ;) But then of course, wherever those dear to my heart peeps are, I will call home always no matter what

"King of the Roost - Haantje de Voorste"

Cockadoodledoo - in English
Kukeleku - in Dutch
Cocorico - in French
all pretty funny words for the sound a rooster makes in the morning, telling us it is a new day ! Here is my chiaroscuro study of a rooster portrait I recently did. The original sold, but prints are still available from my Society6 site, check it out. I started being more and more fond of our chickens and rooster, they are real characters, so I will probably use them as my muse a few more times. Here's another rooster item that will be in my Etsy shop soon. A funky treasurebox {more pics in the listing}
I am working a lot at the moment to make loads of original Christmas and just because gifts, stay tuned and check out any of my on-line shops  or if you are in the area, stop by the studio ;)

Fairy Tales and Stories

Mixed Media with encaustic finishing - 120 x 30 cm stretched canvas
 This week I finally found some time to finish two paintings themed on fairy tales. I had been working on these for a while now, but busy times prevented me to spend a little one on one time with them to check them over and call them finished. A little sort of ritual I need to do, a final check list and then adding little finishing touches or changing small details and choosing the correct varnish or top layer for the work. I can then feel okay enough to move on to other works again. And yeah, I have a few waiting....

The first one is "the Princess on the Pea"
The Princess....
The pea ;)
 the other one is loosely inspired by Sleeping Beauty
I call it "The Midnight Kiss"
"the Midnight Kiss" - mixed media on stretched canvas


 It made me feel like doing a few more Fairy some ideas already, great way to dream away in stress-y times
