I’ve been very busy lately with my online courses and I haven’t had much time to create new works even if I have (as always) lots of projects in my drawers. To make you wait, here are a few small letters with, for once, a little bit of color (I confess, my palette is limited).
I have finally finished the slate engraving started in November 2019. It has a hole on the back that allows you to hang it on the wall or, if you prefer, to insert a fixation that will allow you to wear it proudly as a tie 🙂
the engraving has been filled with acrylic paint and rust before being varnished.
It’s a tired old saying, but it’s nonetheless true. And it’s also my way of telling why I haven’t posted for far too long.
I first took part in the book fair in Montreuil-Bellay, with courses given before and after the fair, then I got back home and, since then, I’ve been working on the next courses I’m going to teach, the first on the list abroad being the one on the second bible of Charles the Bald in Welkenraedt next April.
So here’s a reinterpretation of the decorated capital letters that will be taught during the course (I still have to create the minuscule model so don’t expect any new posts in the near future).
And to think that it was the city of my first love!!!!!!!!
Yes, well, sorry, I’m getting ahead of New Year’s Eve or I’m late for Christmas, it looks like I’m drunk and not even 11:00 in the morning, it’s not serious.
So I get it together, I try to stay decent for a few minutes but you will admit that putting the finishing touches to a composition started more than a year ago is enough to make you happy, even if it is expressed in the form of a song by Hervé Vilard… (hopefully, if you read my blog in english you may not know about this song, it seems that an english version with quite different lyrics exists)
Here, the rust has embedded itself, the varnish is applied, I love it (unlike my wife who finds it very ugly, we can’t agree all the time).
