Painting and Collecting

"Copper Mine", size approx. letter
Some bits of my color pencil collection
 Colour pencil on black cardboard works fine and is not as dangerous as gouache when being used in the living room. You might remember: I started embroidery and quilting to have something to do while my husband watches tv in the evening. We need to be together during the few hours of day when he is at home. -- My collection of color pencils is much larger, but I am ashamed to show the whole bunch. Stash collectors... Well, I'd probably not collect things that cannot be transformed into something else.
Painted Diary, Gouache
At night, I carry on with my gouache paintings. I use a small book -- about half letter size -- to create a painted diary with comments. 
The Black Waters of Loch Ness
African Dance
Merry Xmas, Mr Vassily!
Happy Boomerangs

Really Eva your brilliant eye enriches my vision so. The depth and intensity of the paints on black is so pleasing to me. What beautiful work!

O Eva, your colours on black paper are so vibrant!
I've seen black paper in our art supply store (use it sometimes) but never saw a whole booklet of it .... Must keep my eyes open for it next time I visit the shop (in Rotterdam)

WOW - I almost missed this - and that would have been a real pity!
I love colors on black - they seem to glow and be enhanced!
I love your paintings! They are wonderful! Oh well - like all your artwork Eva! It's always true to yourself, brilliant and dazzling! :-)

I thought those were all velvets at first! Amazing!

Hi, Eva. I get the thing about the husband in front of the TV! Love these pieces. I think your "copper mine" would make a marvelous large piece in fabrics-- felts and velvets, maybe?
Happy holidays!
best, nadia
