I love installing little artistic experiments through out my house; an ornamental tree growing out of the ceiling, paint leaking from a painting, an insect hive; teeming with life, splattered-liquid metal etc. etc…
The colour/style of the installation MUST marry in with its’ surroundings: so, it doesn’t stand out like Babboon’s bollocks and only catches the viewer’s eye, if, they’re paying attention to the little details…thus, creating mystery.
So, I have too many pencils (first-world-problems), and I needed to store/organise them. I did a little research and I watched this video:
So, I evolved this idea, taking into account: the well-used pencil lengths, drawing implements, & the need of smaller storage for one-offs, like the Blender pencil. Also, I found spreading a layer of glue (about 1.5 mm thick) across the whole base, was a more expedient process (it saved time yo!). Then I painted, decorated and filled it…One happy artist, right here!
She’s finally finished! Artistic endeavors, time & toddlers don’t mix; , recipe for disaster much?!
Rembrant-Lyra Oil pencils are a dream to draw with…so smooth & creamy; and they’re heavily laden with a delicious pigment range!
Having so much fun drawing on wood again!
Just a little fancy, I knitted up for myself…
