corner view ≈ mix and match

i don't think there's a better match for me than mixing it. i do believe i rather think in bits and pieces than i look for an overview. 

drawing | coat

i collaged a coat here, in november 2014, labeled rara avis. too funny, but thought i could mention it. today i will continue experimenting on a lick of paint or a coat of colour {my walls could do with a new coat of paint too}. 
i've been staring down vimeo and youtube films on braying paint all over: mono, stencil, screen, stamp, collagraph, ... you name it! 
and last night i leafed through the few printing books i own. which brought me to 'leaf'. {good to feel the green, green morning grass of home 'tween my toes}. and print. and experimenting on the oldest print application on earth, possibly. patrice's coats this weekend. 

corner view ≈ bright

on a bright sunny day, one can see forever. i've adapted the {film} title a little to today's theme. also recycling a weekend post, on which a dear friend told me how vincent van gogh painted pictures from tableaus his brother sent him. residing in the eclectic south, after his grim northern hemisphere séjour, the man must have learned a thing or two on brightness.

corner view ≈ once upon a time

once upon a time there was a girl who was picked up from school on a saturday morning. her dad hesitantly stepped inside the school hall and looked for his girl. there she was, clutching a thin fairy-tale book the size of her belly. the girl ran to him, grabbed his huge hand.

drawing | grass

my son could tell a story or two on grass... ☻ while i'm glad the green is shooting upwards again. goodbye moss! as it is for me, the grass is greener on another side this weekend, stopping me from participating with anything more than a déjeuner-sur-l'herbe. this is my old brussels' 'hood, aw. veronica's grass meeting this weekend. more sunny brussels here.

corner view ≈ hunger

a stroke of luck! not having prepared a corner view post, my book jumped to my rescue. this is LET THE NORTHERN LIGHTS ERASE YOUR NAME by VENDELA VIDA {p. 94}. hunger in the middle ☺. jane's corner view, francesca's hosting, kelleyn's theme. 

drawing | key is ...

key is to grab the moment. one night i lay down underneath the skylight and let myself get bewildered by daunting moonlight and the wavy douglas above my skylight window. on my closed eyelids, i caught the flickering movements of the fir, filtering the moonlight in my bedroom. i usually get agitated by this. not this time. i wanted to cease the moment, carpe noctem, so to speak ... and fell asleep. 

corner view ≈ bloomin' practice

i am in two minds about april 1st. while i can appreciate a good gimmick, i do not consider april fishes to be that humourous. every april 1st however, i see many people thinking differently. in our country called 'send-away-day', i remember dad sending me over to my aunt (living next door back then) on one or other errand. the first few years this happened to me i stood there blinking, trying to make sense of my aunt's chuckle. 'you've been fooled, girl! your dad did it again.'
