Painting Hundertwasser painted wherever he was, at home, in nature and on the road, in cafés and restaurants, on the train or on aeroplanes, in hotels or at the homes of friends or acquaintances he was visiting. He had no studio and did not paint at an easel, but instead spread the canvas or sheet of paper flat in front of him. When he was on the road it could happen that he folded the paper, painting only on the visible part of his work. He either took his paintings on trips, or he left them at his places of residence and continued to paint them as soon as he returned. David Lavine David Lavine cuts and pastes paper in New York. All collages are sourced from printed material, then hand-cut and glued. There is no digital manipulation or otherwise high-tech trickery. Brooke Shaden : Creating new worlds through images. This week I received an email from a most beautiful soul, asking if I would write about the topic of how to find inspiration when life is getting you down. I’m extremely empathetic and I take on others pain and joy very easily, and after reading her email, I cried for her. And if I can offer any words of advice that might be even 1% useful, well, that is how to contribute to our community. The first thing that I think needs to be clarified about artistry or inspiration or even passion is that it does not have to be who we are. We are artists, we are creative thinkers, but we are so much more than the label “Artist” or “Photographer”.
The Pinhegg – My Journey To Build An Egg Pinhole Camera Since I started pin-holing the world, I have had the strong desire to make a special camera, with the purpose of shooting just one photograph. The purpose was to sacrifice the camera in the process of photo creation – I wanted the camera to become the photograph. To let you understand, the process from the camera to the photograph is the same that ties the baby bird to the egg: the bird grows protected from the shell and when it's ready breaks it and comes out. This is why I decided to create the Pinhegg – An Egg Pinhole Camera. On the one hand it all seemed so easy – I would create the Pinhegg without breaking the egg, using it as a camera obscura and, upon opening the egg, find the photograph impressed on the shell.

The creation of beads from colorful paper goes back to Victorian times when ladies used knitting needles and paper scraps to create beads for decorations around their homes. The style of the beads varies considerably depending on how you cut your strips of paper. These templates will give you an idea of where to start but it’s fun to experiment on your own to find your own favorite style.
