From the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape... We must pick out what is good for us where we can find it.

Hope I'll find some time next week-end to paint in my journal.

Orly

I ended my road trip in Somerset (England) with 3 workshops. My first class was taught by Orly Avineri and I made this :

It was the second time this year that I had the opportunity to spent a little time with her (after meeting her for the first time in New Jersey).
She is fabulous. She really is my mentor.
Everything I make is dedicated to her. Always.

passeport journal

For one of the class I took with Orly Avineri in New Jersey back in july, we had to bring an old passeport to work with. The class was called "just a formality". I had to leave the workshop early to catch my flight back to Belgium but I wanted to paint a lot more in it.
Last week, I finally found the time to finish it (painting, gluing, attaching).
It contains scraps of paper that I kept in a box (the cover of my first music tape, a love note I wrote to my mother when I was 6, some stickers I brought back from Mauritius 15 years ago, etc.)
I had that wonderful mini book cover made with chinese fabric waiting to find something precious to protect. It fitted perfectly!
And, guess what? I have another one ready to alter!
I was only 20 years old on that picture... That is 13 years ago.
Don't you have an old passeport lying around?
