Bananas (sort of), egg head, faces, and a treasure map

I've been very busy these last few days. My daughter is with her grand parents in Bretagne, learning to sail and enjoying the rain... And I've been playing with acrylic paints, totally new for me, and totally fun!


Some kind of strange bananas appeared.
Then things fused out of this egg head.


Meanwhile, I kept my routine of drawing faces, just not to "lose my hand" (that's a loose and unverified translation of a french expression - too tired too check it up, hope you'll get it : ) !)


And then I felt like drawing a map of what I want in my life, in the spirit of Shakti Gawain's Treasure Maps, and I made this :


Some things I already have, some I hope I'll have someday.

I also found a buyer for my flat (almost signed, crossing my fingers), worked on my thesis, and done almost everything on my to-do list.
I have a lot of other things in various stages of advancement, and not enough time to post, so who knows when I'll post next!
Morality : vacation is good!

How fantastic to have the space to play and let all these images float up. Beautiful colours in all of them - and I think the treasure map is wonderful.

I enjoy your postings so much. You do such a variety of things. Your experiments in acrylics make me want to try them too. Your faces are so expressive. Thank you for sharing your inspiration.

Your acrylics look positively joyful! And, every time I see your drawings of faces, each in its own little frame, I want to try doing some that way. I love your map - what a wonderful way to express dreams and wishes! nancy

Wow - I don't know what's up with me lately. I was here several days ago, and I didn't comment - probably tired, or too busy. But this post is worth a comment, for sure! Your acrylics are vibrant, interesting and so creative! A great new direction for you. :)
