Stop Motion adventure

I had to try it, didn't I ? 
When I can playwith something new, I just have to try !
I bought my son some stop motion clay, because he wanted to learn how to make stop motion films. (did I tell you already he want to do special effects when he grows up ? (to see his little "workshop" click here) So we sat down on Sunday and started playing, we had loads of fun sculpting, it's so pliable and soft. Anyway, when the kids went to school on Monday morning and Monday happens to be my day off (to do all the other chores I am supposed to be doing for work of course) I couldn't help but shooting some frames to see how it would turn out. (Also, so that I can help him when he needs to turn his into a movie of course, you get it ! ) Well, here's my first little production ! I think she looks cute. And I also have to thank my superman for helping me with the editing. He did a great job finishing my rough series of frames into this musical little film ♥

Thoughts in yellow, green and blue

".. all theory my dear friend is gray,
but the golden tree of life springs ever green.."
 J.W.von Goethe

I made another little (A5 size) coptic journal to play a bit with ideas, thoughts and mediums. This is the first page: a portrait done with Letraset markers. And a nice quote by J.W.von Goethe 
All my kids classes are making journals this term (well I've sewn them up and they fill them ;) I will post some of their progress in the school site HERE  
I also started the Flowerpress workshop on-line this week, you can find this one at One Little House HERE and the Fresco worshop on-line is still going at The Trodden Path HERE They are on-going and open to start whenever suits you.

the Dark side of the Mount

Hippocampus Ma-ita-i
I am so proud, I have 4 Steampunk-y paintings in this exciting exhibition at Lightwave Gallery at the Mount here in Tauranga. The exhibit runs at least until 24 February, so if you are in the area, visit ! It's not just an exhibit, it's an experience ! Many stories in anticipation had appeared in the various local papers even before the opening. More details and journals are on the Lightwave site whenever you click on one of the photos here, you will be taken there ;) and I am sure they will have more pictures of the opening and some good stageshots of the exhibit rooms soon as well, so check it out ! For now I will share my works here and a few snapshots I managed to take between talks and meeting other people and sneaking around the many visitors that were there. It was a steamy event on a balmy summer's evening....;)
