Drawing challenge #48: UMBRELLA

Some poise of body catch my eye... a fortiori when two are similar but different...

 I follow my golden thread... and find her


Its amazing... 
standing directly under 'Maman' it looks like under an umbrella with its crown and frame...
I feel really protected and the blowing wind isn't cold.

Good visored one can fly!

'Ariadne Poppins' 
is a blend of Ariadne from the Greek mythology and Mary Poppins
Based on the UMBRELLA theme of lovely Renilde she's using it as a means of transportation... to do good. 

I create her of cuttings from magazines and one ball of thread on canvas. For more UMRELLAs or PARASOLs please fly to dear Renilde's stroke of the brush.

  1. ariane poppins!
    i think you have succeeded in re-baptizing the queen of the eisenbachs...
    [i'm not sure on the sculpture, though. bad, bad horror movies memories, huge insects...] ;)

    1. Huge spider are thrilling, of course,
      dear woolfi.
      Even for me. All the more it was surprising for me standing under that 'Maman' it was warm and safe.
      ♥ Ariane.

  2. Wow..what a beautiful post..your art is mega-fantastic..full of life and spirit and beauty...wonderful! and all the fantastic photographs..thankyou for this enchanting visit..I had such fun flying with you!

  3. I love that first photo! and of course Louise- how she can turn a fear into comfort, very powerful! The reflection picture I think captures it..and your collage is precious!

    1. Oh, dear Kristen,
      you're right: she can turn a fear into comfort! Very healthful.
      x Ariane.

  4. oh, wauw... maman!

    but hé!
    Ariane Poppins
    that made me giggle
    great job!

    1. Dear Patrice,

      x Ariane.

  5. Dear Ariane,
    I realty love your your umbrella challenge!:
    I love the umbrella shape association - its wonderful!
    The Ariane Poppins made me smile - when I was thinking about this challenge - Mary Poppins was my first idea...I love your paper collage.....:-)

    1. Sometimes its really crazy,
      dear Hagar,
      'to be pregnant' with a theme open my mind for very different images. Taking a photo of Mr Beckham at the station was a little bit embarrassing situation... hahaha.
      x Ariane.

  6. Hello lovely lady,
    Like I already said to Demie, I love umbrellas. Especially the big, black old ones... the once that can make you fly.

    1. Hello lovely lady Lilli.
      Big, black old umbrellas make me think of India... a friend told me that the umbrellas are standing everywhere and when its rain, each one can take one. After rain they leave them right on that place.
      xx Ariane.

  7. now! you have combined two of my favorite ladies!
    Ariadne who helped Theseus, and that stupid boy left her as a gift to Dionysus, on his way back to Athens - surely she had more fun with him that she would ever have with Theseus ; ) but you know what I mean...AND Mary Poppins! I grew up with both those ladies... I can even say: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious ; ) - no not really...

    your art work is one of a kind dear Ariane! lots of love d

    1. Dear Demie,
      thank you for the flowers and this huge word ;-)
      I've never been to Greece 'til now... one day.

      x Ariane.

  8. Your collage is so lovely! And David Beckham...hubba hubba!
    That giant spider like sculpture we have here in Nola as well. We were just at NOMA ( New Orleans Museum of Art and it is displayed in the sculpture garden.
    Back to your collage, I really really like it, and the thread makes it come alive.

  11. There is always that softness in your creations, typical Ariane and it always touches me.
    I have been intrigued by Louise Bourgeois' work since i first saw it, quite a lady.
    Thanks Ariane, great post! xx
