A new workshop coming up at Ledge Craft Lane:

Winged: Graphite drawing workshop, August 7th 2014

It will be a graphite texture and form study of birds, feather and wings. We will be using water soluble graphite on plaster treated wood panels.

Please see the above link for more info!

I started this drawing a few years ago, I though it was finished just having the subtle woman profile as main element. After seeing it for months in my studio, I thought it really needed something else, so I added the birds. I like it this way, it’s done.

The artwork measures 24″x24″, graphite drawing, white charcoal on plaster and wood panel.

Available in shop

Finding Home by Ingrid Blixt

Below are details from the drawing:

I actually think all springs are busy, it’s just the nature of it. I also got to spend lots of time in my studio and new artworks were made! I revisited the good old barn wood and made a few barn wood encaustics also I finally decided to so some artworks on the utility pole subject – it’s been on my mind for quite a while and I used it here and there but not like this time. I never had a sure answer for why I like the theme and the images of utility poles with all the tangled wires. I find them just beautiful.

All the new pieces together with the new barn wood pieces can be viewed and purchased in my gallery shop (also there’s a 10% off on all – code: FINALLYSPRING) – this in case you do not receive my newsletter.

Below is one of the barn wood encaustics:

My latest drawing: The Sparrow and the unraveling moon, a mixed media artwork: graphite (dark wash), paper, ink, plaster on wood panel, measuring 16″x16″ and 1.5″ deep.
It went through many stages – it started with the flowers, wasn’t quite sure where it will go. I worked from bottom up.
Artwork available in my shop.

I found this beautiful piece of barn wood, painted red – I usually end up drawing on wood, but this time it was asking for painting, a light watercolor painting combined with graphite on plaster.

The artwork measures 46″x12″

Big gap in my posts, I was moving, and packing … and unpacking…

Finished this icon I was working on for a while, started with a Byzantine icon and I really wanted to make an icon with graphite, a contemporary Byzantine style icon, i guess.

Measures 14″x14″, graphite dark wash on wood, silver leaf. Available in my shop.

Here are three new encaustics I just finished – with road trips in mind, more dynamic times and warmer weather.

Wrapped up everything a bit late – I finished quite a few new pieces, all encaustics and they are listed in my two shops: Ingrid Art Studio and Bright Day.
I also got a chance to actually take pictures and list some of the new recycled watch parts pendants: you can view the line in my Open Journey gallery/store.

The Owls look really awesome right now on my studio wall as a group…will be sad separating them :-)NEWS_12b

Another ‘Illustration and a line’, and this time, I think, the following fragment is my favorite – I remember this was the fragment that sealed the deal and made me think, yes, I very much want to illustrate this book…

“It is inside this house that one night the phone rings and rings in the darkness, and I get up, sure that is ringing, wondering why the silence rests so heavily in the house, wondering why nobody hears the phone ringing but me, and I go through the dark to where the phone is, without being able to see it, and lift it and hold it to my ear and I listen to the silence of stars.”
