"Bergen aan zee"
De zee kun je horen
met de handen voor je oren,
in een kokkel, in een mosterdpotje,
of aan zee.
You can hear the sea
with your hands before your ears,
in a cockle, in a mustard pot,
or at the sea.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers - That perches in the soul - And sings the tune without the words - And never stops - at all - And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard - And sore must be the storm - That could abash the little Bird That kept so many warm - I’ve heard it in the chillest land - And on the strangest Sea - Yet - never - in Extremity, It asked a crumb - of me.

For several reasons Patrice theme,"blue", for the art challenge
this week came as a pleasant surprise. Those who have been
following my blog for longer know why.
In a sense, "blue", is a little bit my color:). I just use it often,
it"s my favorite color.
And it was with great pleasure that I organized an online exhibition
in 2012 entitled, "ode to blue"
To see more "blue", please visit Patrice her site here
Thank you for hosting Patrice.

"They change their sky not their soul who rush across the sea"- Horace
This poem by Willem Hussem crossed my path. It inspired me to the above pieces,
collage and mixed media, each 15 x 20 cm
Poem bu Dutch artist and poet Willem Hussem,
1900-1974, wallpainting in Leiden, The Netherlands
put the blue
of the sea
blue of sky
of a sail
in it and the
wind starts to blow

Back to where I once began...
While cleaning my studio, I came across these collages.
They are from long ago, even before the Internet era and
at that time I had never heard of mail art or something.
They're made on unfolded airmail envelopes and imagine
travel impressions. I've always kept the pieces ( as a kind
of hidden treasures) but never exhibited them.
So this is the scoop!:)
The subject "airmail envelopes" brought me to the theme
for the next dc: sky
How it works:
If you want to join, leave a comment saying you are in.
The following weekend ( 14 and 15 of May) the drawings,
photos, poems etc. are shown on the blogs of the participants.
And the host (me:) links to them all.
(I'll try to create a linkpage....not sure about that)
Looking forward to see your SKIES
To get inspired: please look here
It is an article of an exhibition on the theme of "clouds".
The exhibition was in 2014.
The text is in dutch (just use google translations)
but I think the images speak for themselves.
