adoring the colours

Instead of trying to reproduce exactly what I see before me, I make more arbitary use of colour to express myself more forcefully ... To express the love of two lovers by the marriage of two complementary colours ... To express the thought of a brow by the radiance of a light tone against a dark background. To express hope by some star. Someone's passion by the radiance of the setting sun.

thus explainded Vincent Van Gogh

...could not have expressed it better myself ... but maybe what i enjoyed most was getting my hands dirty again

refinding the lines

felt tipped pen soft pencil
things are still somewhat blurry and strong back lighting is both a painful to look at and so beautiful to see.

blogging again

after what seemed an eternity in the darkness I am back on the road to recovery, just impatient to actually do stuff and live my life ... eat drink (sketch) and be merry .. that kind of stuff ...dark glasses, darkened rooms and just pens and scrap paper aren't really living ...buggar it time for a decent coffee ...and buy some art materials
