Desktop calendar for April – click image to download

Well, maybe I should call this a calendar for mid-April! I’m late (again…) because I’ve spent every free moment I had outside… Ever since I moved to Ronse I find myself drawn to the landscape, the flowing fields and the woods on the hills! I have a few posts ready about my explorations so you can discover this landscape with me.

For the calendar of April I wanted to show you a little work-in-process image of my fur/landscape project. I’ve been searching for a way that worked in translating that soft feeling of fur, a sense of movement as with grass in a field, while still indicating something glasslike and fragile. I’ve come a long way with it, as you can see in the posts from a few months back (november and december). I explain how I came to it in one of upcoming posts; for now, enjoy your calendar!

Happy 2016! Here you go, a bright new look for your computer desktop!

I want to breathe new life into a little project that I had to abort way too soon because of college work… but now the end is in sight, and I hope you will like the new glassy inspirations I’m cooking up for you this year!

Just like before, the desktop image uses a white background with a handwritten calendar for the month, and I’ve added the most important moon phases too: ○ full moon & ● new moon.

The resolution is 2560×1600, which should fit most computer screens.

This blue chunk of glass is a treasure I picked up in Venice (when I visited the city in 2013), on the “glass island” Murano . It has been molten and hotworked with in the glass blowing studios. This is part of the waste, actually, but don’t you think it looks like a gemstone?

a wish and a present for 2012

Dear reader, thank you for following my blog!

I know I don’t post that often and at irregular intervals, so thank you for sticking with me. That will probably stay the same next year, as I’m still a full time student and a night time artist.

But I’ve got something for you to look forward to! At the end of each month I will post one of these for the upcoming month:

January 2012

It’s a desktop background for January and it’s all for you – click to download and set as background! (edit: link now works, lol)

Each month will feature some of my lovely lampwork glass growth or tentacles with the month handwritten (in Dutch) in good old pen & ink (well, Ecoline). Something pleasant yet practical. 😉
