Drawing challenge: MIRROR


Das Ufer der Insel Kaltehofe
in der Billwerder Bucht in Hamburg spiegelt sich im Wasser der Elbe. 
Gemalt habe ich das Bild mit Ei-Tempera auf Leinwand nach einem Foto, dass ich von der Barkasse aus auf einem Betriebsausflug gemacht habe.
Es ist noch warm gewesen und die Bootsfahrt gemütlich, wie in einem riesigen Kinderwagen. Im Spiegel der Zeit, wissend wie lang und kalt der darauf folgende Winter werden würde, hätte ich diese Fahrt vielleicht noch mehr genossen...

The bank of isle Kaltehofe
in the bay of Billwerder in Hamburg be refected in the water of river Elbe.
I've painted these picture with egg-tempera on canvas adapted from a photo, that I've taken from a launch on a annual works outing.
It has been warm outside and the boat trip cozy like in a huge baby buggy. In the mirror of time, knowing how long and cold the following winter would be, maybe I might have enjoy this trip much more...


Drehe ich nun das Bild und lasse die Spiegelebene vertikal verlaufen, kann ich dieses Bild auch als Rorschach-Test nutzen. 

Turn I this painting and have the level of reflection in a vertical way, I can use this pic as a Rorschach-Test.


...oder so herum.

...or so.



Ist dieses Phänomen beim Bloggen nicht sehr ähnlich?
Sind wir als Betrachter und unsere Kommentare nicht ein Spiegel, eine Reflektionsebene für den/diejenige/n, der/die etwas veröffentlicht?
In diesem Kreis hier sind es sehr liebevolle Spiegel.

This phenomenon is similar to blogging, right?
Are we as a viewer and our comments a mirror, a level of reflection to those who published?
In these circle the mirrors are very loving.

  7. Ariane, as usual your artwork has that touch of softness and peace that so inspires me. I love watercolor and really want to lay with it more. This is a perfect piece to have hanging on your wall.
    Thank you for the theme.

  8. dear, i am also happy to get a little bonus self portrait at the end of this sweet story.
    and perhaps this is exactly the great timing to post it and write those words, when the winter is leaving and spring is entering.
    beautiful!

  9. Ariane,
    My mirror is an refelction in, what we call, 'heksenbal', a 'witchball'. Old houses used to have a window above the frontdoor. That's where they hung the witchball, to keep the evil spirits out.

  11. Lovely. Your soft words and colours. I want to drift in a boat in your painting. And I like how you lift us as mirrors to each other. A beautiful thought. Our human likeness. Exactly what we need in this world. I wish people in general would be as warm to each other as people are in the blogosphere.

    Thank you for your self-portrait also, nice to meet you face to face!

    And thanks for hosting. Who's our host for next week?

    ♥ Ariane.

    AntwortenLöschen
  14. Dear Rachel,
    that would be nice.
    I've asked Patrice, if she wanna be host, but she didn't answer by now.
    So I think you are our host for next week and Patrice one week later (if she wishes to be).
    Yes?

    AntwortenLöschen
