Elefant

Today’s post title could probably also be “the big picture”, or “if you want to eat an elephant”. You know how the saying goes: “If you want to eat an elephant, do it in small bites. ” The elephant you see on this post is the result of yesterday’s painting exercise, acrylic on canvas, pretty […]

piles of things

Today’s picture is a bit an odd one: it is a picture from one of the walls in the “factory”, where I piled up the boxed packages of air du désert marocain. Pieces of 24 in cardboard boxes, piled up to form sort of a tauer tower. Some more need to go there, but there […]

copy of nature

Uff. We (my two helping hands and me) sort of managed to get packed and ready what needed to get packed in the “factory”. Like: Piles of air du désert sitting there, waiting for autumn and the holiday season and “if we are lucky” it will last into early next year. Thus, that exercise is […]

Spoiled and the sea shore

Today’s picture shows you my weekend exercise: working patiently on a sea shore motive. It sits in the living room now, as it is acryl paint and dries super fast, together with many other paintings in various formats, and me don’t know nada what to do with them. You know, my painting teacher told me […]

Scented Snippet

First: Thank you to all of you who commented on my last post about the discovery set. Actually, I got – thanks to you- a couple of more ideas what to do there. I love, for instance, the idea of a “tauer starter set” and a “the latest” set. Great! One of the reasons why […]

a lot of sample vials

A new week, and sort of the same stories to start the day: Negotiations about Greece. Slowly but surely the Euro stories turn into picking over bones of a corpse that`s dead as a dodo. With a paralyzing effect on a variety of levels. And the drama, or soap opera, presents everything that does not work […]

printing cards

today, right now, somewhat bugged out, I am printing cards a gogo. For air du désert marocain. It is a bit annoying, because the printer has troubles fetching the cards, sometimes. Thus, it was quite some fiddling happening this morning in the house of tauer. But now, after setting some details and cheating the printer by […]

very hot

well, you know: holiday season started in Europe, and everything is calming down; almost everything. The factory, where I label literally thousands of bottles these days, is steaming, though. But only in the morning hours. It is just getting too hot during the afternoon (no AC ). Thus, there is time during the afternoons to […]

Academic tradition

I got myself a drawing course book, THE drawing course, from the 19th century, because I decided that I need a somewhat more systematic approach to develop my painting skills.  The objects in there: Human body (parts). I switched from flowers et al a while ago and try to do at least one pencil illustration […]
