Welcome

Welcome to my Inner World. I am a French self-taught artist, and these past seventeen years I have made Norway my home. Moving to the Lofoten islands was the greatest present I ever made to myself and the Arctic landscapes are indeed a true treat for any artist’s eyes. I live with my British soulmate,… Continue Reading

Autumn is here

To celebrate the beginning of autumn, my soulmate made a delicious Black Forest cake:

He’s such a maestro of the art of the delicious!

Autumn has started, the best season for inspiration! Now that I have plenty of time ahead for my creativity, I feel like starting so many things at once! I’ve been trying to knit lately, but I’m sorry to say: this is not for me. But I would love so very much to weave, I feel totally drawn to it, also perhaps because lately the abstract and symbolic doodling in my painting reminds me of the fabric of magic and life. I want to weave, and I will. This is my next project.

In the meantime, here is the little Beauty:

A candle for Loki

candle

I’ve been working on this mosaic for five months. I took my time, also because I didn’t want to finish it too soon, since this was a way for me to process my bottomless sadness over having lost Loki, my beloved dog. Today, I am still tearful when I think about how much I miss him. As I write this, tears are rolling down my cheeks. But I know we will be together again. This is my message to him as I light his candle. I wanted this little picture on the left to be appeasing, ethereal, but instead, it looks like a party is going on, like at a fairground, only in the beyond. There is something almost gypsy-like about it. Death, loss… and merriment.

I’m so grateful I got to see Loki again a number of times in my dreams and I will surely see him many times more until the final dream, the one we don’t wake up from, and I will follow him on the gypsy fairground in between the caravans and all the good smells.

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the mosaic, waiting to be printed and put on my wall:

I will now go into the details.

More Glaze Experimentation

This time, I wanted to see if the patterns painted with underglazes would show up under the semi-transparent Opalescent glaze and it did to some extent, but not quite enough. I left unglazed some of the figures on the tile and this, I like very much.Next time, I’ll try to leave more parts unglazed, the trick is to know which ones and in which proportions. I kind of like the powdery aspect of the underglazes.

Unglazed:

Tiles

My favourite old camera is now out of order, any battery I put inside just last ten minuts. I’ll have to use from now on my very disappointing Canon 60D, shame, shame, shame. Ideally, I’d like to buy a new Canon S3IS but it’s not going to happen before a while.
I made a few corrections to my recent glazed items with some oils and I’m ok with the results. Just ok. I need to experiment again and again.
