social media

i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and if you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.

i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).

currently i try to publish frequently once in a week (mondays/tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

selten genug, dass ich mich zu einem swap aufraffe...
aber fische mag ich als motiv sehr gerne.
und die hintergründe sind mal wieder sprayabfall oder eingefärbte brillenputztücher...

take a word: music

"blackbird" (beatles song > take a word challenge) - brought to my mind because our tomcat caught 2 young blackbirds recently. i hate it when he does this, but well, that´s nature...
for TT this week we can take any photo we made - this time i took two textures from flickr, one for the blue effect and one for the frame. font: second breakfast.
