dc #129: VASE

At home in the Castle at the Eisenbach are always flowers...
and many vases to put them into and feed them with fresh water.

Bouquet of the Youngest

I portray them with flowers and blossoming branches

and without. 

The day passes very quickly as I 
gaze at my vases like a chess player. Put them carefully in position to each other... considering form and surface structure, size, material and colour and personality

I start to draw with pencil and crayon, later I take watercolour and

at last a clippers.

Somehow this all reminds me on the Italian artist: Giorgio Morandi.

Find Morandi in a Décoration Internationale 
from Juin 1985 photographed by Jean-Michel Folon... (happy that I didn't trash it :)

And I like the paper you used for the cut-outs, I learned something about an artist today as well! Thank you for this theme!

  9. Liebe Ariane, am allerbesten gefällt mir natürlich das Bild mit dir drauf und deinem Fotostudio-Arrangement und den g a n z e n Tisch voller Vasen! Einfach genial. Wie immer ein Füllhorn an wundervollen Impressionen, Formen und Varianten, einfach toll. Ich finde die mit den Rillen und Riffeln und besonders die eine, die wie gefaltetes Papier aussieht besonders genial. Ganz, ganz toll und dann hast du dich ja auch förmlich kreativ ausgetobt ohne Ende - WOW, ganz grosses Kompliment!
