paper, thread, wood





 This afternoon I visited the recently refurbished museum in Den Bosch HNBM/SMs, in fact they are two museums now united by a huge, glass corridor; it was a bit confusing walking from one to the other and having to check in twice! but enjoyable and the weather was sunny and not too warm and there's a beautiful garden with big birch trees, very nice.
The paper masks are by a Dutch artist Marc Mulders; I really like the simplicity of the materials used in these artworks: cutting and tearing paper, I feel like I could do this as well



 and here another simple technique in a work by an artist Marina Visic I had never heard of, apparently she made it in one single day.....I love it when you see something totally unexpected in a museum (or wherever for that matter)




p.s. when I say 'simple' I do not mean easy; I love simple stuff.


simple things like grids and rainbows; the roof is finished, what a relief! and yes Grace I would have welcomed your help, that would have been fun! ah the light we now have: de-light-ful

speaking of lights: I made one with the old 'raggels'

of course in your part of the world you would want shade, we crave light and sun!!
it is a huge relief it's done, the rains and snows will soon be upon us...........we're prepared
