Illustration Friday - Ahead

Go ahead! Spread your wings and fly!

Tag (5.25" x 2.625") - front & back
Collage, image transfer, stamps, stencils, & acrylic paint.

I hope you all had a great weekend. Ours was rainy both Saturday and Sunday with visions of the summer's humidity awaiting us...

Because of the rain, I did get to work on my art a good bit, and am almost done with another women's portrait. It just needs some background work. I hope I can show it to you tomorrow!

In the meantime, I wish you a great start to your week!


  1. These are really pretty, Silke!

  2. These are beautiful Silke. Have a lovely week dearest Silke. Tsup!

  3. Love the collage pieces---seeing all the details and knowing what size these are. (and they do photograph well---looking good larger!)
    Cannot pick a favorite; elements I like in both!


  4. I am really, really liking those!!

  5. Hi Silke..what dazzling beauty..i love the colors...very color-rich....gorgeous energy and vibe to it! Yay..can't wait to see your newest painting..!
    Have a super magical day...

  6. Hello Silke - great colors! Glad you've been enjoying your art. Just wanted to say "Guten Morgen" and have a wonderful week. I'm off to Columbus now.

  7. Your have such a great eye for colour and composition. Great work!

  8. Hello Liebe Silke,

    Great work, I simply love it.
    You really made me fly for a while. Thanks.

    In Portugal, for the last 3/4 days the weather has been fantastic, sunny and hot...better knock on wood as lately it's so unpredictable ...

    Keep on the fastastic work.
    Have a nice week,

  9. Thankyou! And I wish YOU a great week too :o)
    I can do this kind of flying, not the other kind, the aeroplane kind, no. Not again. ;o)xx

  10. Just stopped by to wish you a great week. I like your cards. I've started a homemade book. An idea I got from a blogger friend. It is going to be fun. I cut out the front and back (wood) and have painted it. Now I need to cut and coat the pages that will go in there (card stock). Then I paint them. Fun, fun, and more fun. Except I am so busy, I don't know when I will get to the next step. Tee Hee. Take care.

  11. Silke, the colors are divine! LoVe lOvE LoVe!!! Wee little works of art! **blows kisses** Deb

  12. So stunning! These pieces are so beautiful. Sorry to hear about all the rain; we had a wonderful weather day on Saturday and then yesterday it was dreary and rainy. At least we got one day in for garden shopping! :) Theresa

  13. I had a good weekend .I saw a baby horned owl!!!!! It was amazing and a guess a very good omen!!! I am still high from the siting. Mom and dad owl hooted messages back and forth as we watched it was just at dusk!!

  14. Gorgeous pinks and blues, and each color gets to dominate a side. You are an artist AND a diplomat! Bless the rain for allowing us to wallow in our art without guilt.

    Have a great week!

  15. Your collage colours are so brilliant, they make my spirits soar to look at them! that's soar, not sore! lol

    and I wish you a great start to the week as well...keep on creating!

    ciao bella
    creative carmelina was here!

  16. UHHH! Love the colors of the second vibrant!

  17. Just think of how the rain will make your garden grow!!!

  18. Love these very much!! Great work, Silke!

  19. love the colors and layers! that piece of poetry in the first photo gives it such an air of mystery!

  20. Wow Silke, you are so vigorous in your art making. Great sense of design and colour you have - bet someone else has said that :) The textures are the things that I admire most. Your woman portraits have serenity and bring out the sitters inner self sometimes. Off to check the hummingbird :)

    see you
