Lately I've been drawing a lot...
I was asked to illustrate a book of piano and saxo scores...
so I had to get the lead out ;)

Actually the real black lead kind of freezes me...
that's weird... I can't draw with it...
The blue lead saved me ;)

So I have a whole bunch of little drawings like these...
I'll show them to you little by little.

Two of them have been especially drawn for a group show
It will start next Monday.

And as we say say here , "the cherry on the cake",
a mini interview here :

New shop you like it?

I wanted to try something new so here is my new shop on bigcartel.
I was not too satisfied with the Etsy system...

It's been open for a few months now but I totally forgot to announce it here ;)

Have a look!

A drawing a day,

...the doctor away...?

This is for a secret project...

It seems to me that when I start talking 
about projects I m working on, they go to the dogs...
Fate or Karma?

It's weird beacause I have nothing of  a superstitious girl ;)

Do you like her?

Autumnal mood

I hope you had great holidays!
Here it was a bit weird, the weather was cold all July...

Anyway autumn is almost there, though in my paintings I'm already in winter ;)

I started to paint on Hansel & Gretel tale.
Here are some glimpses:

I'm thinking about a new turn in my work and would love to paint with oil.
I can't wait to try it! But I guess I'll have to champ at the bit for a little while because first I'll have to buy some oils but before that, I should make a choice about the brand I'm gonna use.

Old Holland or Maimeri classico... ;)

I'm bad at making choice... 

(my acrylic babies)

I'll be launching soon my new shop where I'll sell originals and prints.
It will be on BigCartel.
And in a few weeks you will find new postcards and bookmarks in my etsy shop :)
Have a nice day :)

La fée verte

Le vin sait revêtir le plus sordide bouge
D'un luxe miraculeux,
Et fait surgir plus d'un portique fabuleux
Dans l'or de sa vapeur rouge,
Comme un soleil couchant dans un ciel nébuleux.

L'opium agrandit ce qui n'a pas de bornes,
Allonge l'illimité,
Approfondit le temps, creuse la volupté,
Et de plaisirs noirs et mornes
Remplit l'âme au delà de sa capacité.

Tout cela ne vaut pas le poison qui découle
De tes yeux, de tes yeux verts,
Lacs où mon âme tremble et se voit à l'envers...
Mes songes viennent en foule
Pour se désaltérer à ces gouffres amers.

Tout cela ne vaut pas le terrible prodige
De ta salive qui mord,
Qui plonge dans l'oubli mon âme sans remords,
Et charriant le vertige,
La roule défaillante aux rives de la mort!

Charles Baudelaire

For a new painting maybe...
A sketch of sadness...

Don't you think life is ironic sometimes?

Little finger... Blessure de guerre...

Il y a quelques jours, je me faisais un petit plaisir,
une sorte de cadeau de la fête des mères avant l'heure...
de jolies chaussures qui font mal aux pieds,
un sac à magnésie, et surtout mon forfait d'entrée libre
pour la salle de grimpe...

A few days ago, I offered myself a little gift,
a kind
of Mother's Day before the hour present ...
nice pair ofshoes that badly hurt the feet,
a chalk bag, and most of all my pass
  for the climbing place ...

J'étais parée, heureuse et insouciante...
mais me connaissant j'attendais l'os,
le truc qui chamboule tes plans et qui arrive juste pile poil
pour te faire suer...

I was ready, happy and carefree ...
but knowing me I was waiting for the hitch,
the thing that messes up your plans and just happens right on time
to bore you stiff ...

Je n'ai pas attendu longtemps...
dès le lendemain mon petit doigt s'est pris pour une saucisse Kn**ki
limite genre Kn**ki Ball, avec le coté rouge de la merguez en plus.

I did not wait long ...
the next day my little finger  
had the appearance of Kn ** ki sausage
with the redness of a merguez.

Sos médecin le samedi matin c'est mieux que les croissants... 
et à la pharmacie la tête des pharmaciennes à la vue dudit doigt
m'a fait suivre leur conseil avisé...
direction la Clinique de la main...

Sos doctor on Saturday morning is far better than a croissant ...
and the
faces of the pharmacists seeing the said finger-
persuaded me
to follow their advice ...
Off to the
Hand Clinic...

Elles avaient raison, le chirurgien de garde 
m'a fait l'honneur du gîte et du couvert 
jusqu'au lendemain...
 (et de la perf d'antibios version équine)

They were right, the surgeon on call
made me the offer of
bed and board
for the night ...
 ( and a strong antibios drip)
Mais il a gardé un bout de doigt quand même...
 But by the way he kept a tip of my finger  ... ;)

Et donc avec une main (droite évidement) anésthésiée
et une main gauche branchée à une perf...
main que tu ne peux pas bouger sinon la perf ne passe pas
le temps parait long... :) 

And so with one hand (the right one of course) anesthetized
and the left one connected to an IV...
hand you can not move or the drip doesn't drip anymore,
time seems long ... :)

Bref le lendemain matin,
au lieu d'avoir mon poème au saut du lit,
récité avec amour par mon petit lou...
ben j'étais toute seule... 
attendant ma deuxième perf d'antibio :) 

In short, the next morning,
instead of having my poem out of bed,
recited with love by my little one ...
well I was all alone ...
waiting my second antibiotics drip :)

Et bien sûr dehors il faisait beau et chaud..
C'était le plus beau week-end depuis longtemps ;))

And of course outside it was sunny and warm ...
This was the best weekend for a long time ;))

Mais bon maintenant j'ai une jolie poupée ;)
But right now I have a nice finger bandage 
(for children, we call that a doll, in french ;)

I'm glad to take part to this event... 
I often feel lost and powerless concerning green issues...
It's pleasing to see that other people care 
about nature and do things and try to make it better.

Je suis heureuse de participer à cet évènement...
Je me sens souvent seule et impuissante 
en ce qui concerne les questions écologiques.
Un peu comme Don Quichotte qui se bat contre ses moulins à vent...
Là j'ai l'impression de faire un petit quelque chose d'utile... :)
Et cela fait plaisir de voir que des gens se mobilisent 
et organisent des choses
et qu'à mon petit niveau je peux les aider!

For this occasion you will be able to bid 
on two very nicely done prints on wood...
with low starting prices...
I count on you!

The two available prints will be :

The M. Lady

M. for Mysterious...
I can't find her a name yet...
Maybe you would help? :)

"Dans les bois"?
"Little Miss Mystère" ?

Funny to consider now all the steps she went through...
From the girl very girly , very princess-like 
for the children book 
to something more personnal...

Wip wip wip... done!


"I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine."

A Midsummer Night's Drea, Shakespeare

Just an absolutely marvellous little book :)
John Singer Sargent is just a killer...
If you like him, have a look at William Bougereau's work,
and if you want to cry a bit more, go and google James Jebusa Shannon...

Studio life...

Little glimpse on my studio...
Sometimes I wish I could have a studio outside my home,
with other artists.

I love being alone to paint...
but still I need to see real people...

But anyway, right now I don't have the choice :)

Here's a painting I did for the collective show 
at Curiosité Gallery. 
I think I named her Lhasa because of 
the little red flying fishes in the sky... 

It reminded me of the song by Lhasa de Sela... 
"Los peces en el rio",
(and yes I know the Gipsy Kings sang it before her... 
but well... I prefer Lhasa's song.

Lhasa is now available,
please contact me if you are interested :)
