It's been a wee bit silent on Foppe's Blog this week but that doesn't mean I've been outside enjoying the good weather we're having in Friesland (although I have to confess I did take a nap or two in the hammock with Foppe and Jelle;-)
There is news; currently I'm working on a
new 4x4inch miniature commission of a sweet little Pomeranian dog which
is a lot of fun (I'll show something once I've discussed
the design with the client). I'm also working on a post about the magic
of internet friendships and yesterday I took a trip to a wonderful
craft store in Leeuwarden (the capitol of our province) to get some new
I bought a few sheets of linoleum and will be making
prints in the coming weeks, I also got some pens and more paint to
decorate porcelain (thinking about creating personalized food dishes for
pets). So inspite of the heat my grey cells haven't been affected and
I'm working on some new and exciting new items.
Oh, this coming month Foppe's Acre will be featured in an article in the
'Levende Have' magazine (a magazine about hobby farming and life with
farm animals). We've talked about our move from the city to the
country, the ins- and outs and history of our critters and my art.
Very exciting, once it is published I'll try to show some of the interview.
