A Very Old One

This is a very old pastel painting that I made well before university, sometime in 2001.
Actually, I'm not sure I still like it, but I think I do. Has quite a few faults.
Both of these are detail shots only. The entire one is 50 by 70 cms, and I made it on a deep red sheet of paper, that is what shows thru. I painted it on the floor. My then-boyfriend made photos of my progress. One day I might post those, too, 'cause I think they are funny.

Priya drew my attention to the fact that lately I haven't posted artworks of mine. Yeah, true. I haven't worked very much lately. But I'm sure that sooner or later I'll get back to making artworks (other than graphic design). Actually, this is a kind of a moral obligation of mine, as one of my teachers worded it. I dunno. Maybe it is. Well, if that's what I'm meant to do, then I'd better do it. I really don't know why I've been so lazy nowadays, but to be honest, I don't want to beat myself up about is. Still, I hope I'll soon get my act together.

Color, Patterns, Tiles, Gaudí, Barcelona

Photos that I made in Parc Güell, Barcelona. I deliberately oversaturated these images, which might make them seem a bit kitschy, but I guess they convey the overall atmosphere of the place.
Gaudí was a genious. Decorating with broken tiles is such a good idea. And it's recycling. A green way to home decor. And it can be real art
, too.
