Mondays are for being creative

Mondays are for being creative

A series of unfortunate melt-downs led to something good. It normally does 🙂 but it takes a while to get there. I had a mini-breakdown and lost my shit *almost* completely one evening after a pointless argument with the hubby. When things settled down and we all...

The Crew | Pokkelpensie

The Crew | Pokkelpensie

It has been a while since I initially started working on Rudi's friends. I just can't get myself to play on a computer when I have been working on one for an entire day. I managed to digitise them, but have not worked on them for quite some time. On Monday I finally...

Net nog ‘n brief

Net nog ‘n brief

Ek het so hele rukkie terug sommer net gevoel of 'n trok my getref het. Eintlik is mens veronderstel om elke dag 'n brief te skryf dink ek - wanneer jy goed en sleg voel. Al is dit net om op te vrommel in die drom te gooi. Ek het hierdie een vir my suster ge-epos. Dit...

Art Journaling

Art Journaling

So clearly it is taking me a while to get my creative juices flowing. BUT I am not beating myself up about it. There is the Same Size, Same Price, No Signature exhibition coming up that I really, really want to submit a piece for, but I just can't seem to get it...

How do you deal with “uninspiredness”?

How do you deal with “uninspiredness”?

Featured image by http://blog.drawn.ca Ugh. I am having the clichéd creative block. Tomorrow is Monday and I need to get my mojo back - fast! How do you cope with feeling uninspired and not being able to create? I think it is one of my greatest fears: not being able...

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours. I am still in two minds about which of these is worse. Both leave you lying awake at night. Well, maybe not everyone, but I have had sleepless nights because of both. I...

Draw what you feel

Draw what you feel

A good couple of months ago I was asked to draw anything - as long as it is something - by a person that waltzed into my life. "Draw what you feel." When you suffer from an I don't give a shit right now disorder, this seems like an immensely difficult task. Anything?...

Nine of Wands

Nine of Wands

I have to admit, I am subscribed to a weekly tarot newsletter with personalised readings. How personalised can a computer-generated reading be? It depends which way you look at it, I suppose. From my knowledge, setting up a site that like will take some above-average...

Sing

Sing

Sing. Sure. I sing. Just not in public. Except when I have had too much to drink, then I imagine that I can sing. And my husband reminds me the morning after that it was just my imagination. I'd hang my head and feel sorry for a moment that I never did quite make it...

Sarah | Charcoal on paper

Sarah | Charcoal on paper

From the valley of Nieu Bethesda, this is Sarah. She was done on A2 paper and will soon be hanging in my mom's library.
Song of the moment | Kids on the run

Song of the moment | Kids on the run

I have to confess, this was my song of the moment a couple of months back too. It just does not get old. I turned 35 on Friday - aaaargh! - and I realised how much (nothing?) has changed. I was happy to do nothing for my birthday. I chose to do nothing. (As opposed to...

The Crew’s Development | Part Two

The Crew’s Development | Part Two

The crew's development has made some progress ☺ Yay me. So dear LanaLand visitor, please meet Rudi's own characters and their flattest forms. It was such a wonderful moment when Rudi walked into my studio and saw them on the screen and said: "WOW". (Al dragged out...

Be happy (and all that other good stuff)

Be happy (and all that other good stuff)

I have been trying this new thing for the last couple of days and I believe it has made a significant impact on my life. Generally, I am a happy person. I enjoy an inappropriate joke at the most inappropriate time, I appreciate the laughter coming from the school...

Rediscovering my art supplies

Rediscovering my art supplies

A good couple of birthdays ago my eldest sister gave me an asked-for set of watercolour pencils. Why I added this to my birthday wish list I am still not sure. a) I don't like watercolour and b) pencil is not my favourite medium...

Gelukkige Vadersdag

Gelukkige Vadersdag

Ek het hierdie kaartjie 'n goeie paar jaar terug vir my pa gemaak vir vadersdag. Sommer net gedink ek deel dit 😉 Gelukkige vadersdag aan al die pappas daar buite. Liefde en groete,
