News about my webshops

I’ve been working on my websites lately, and so i have made some changes that also involve this blogsite.

I have closed my website decorsandlifestyle.be and all the paintings in my webshop have been moved to my other site etalagepoppenonline.be

It was to difficult for me to keep two webshops and keep on promoting both on all the different social media platforms.
I have several sites, blogs, vlogs, youtube and other channel to promote, and i really need to clean them up and just keep a handsfull of sites so they will be easier to keep up to date and promote.
Etalagepoppenonline.be is my main webshop of mannequins and diplays and i decided to add all my decorations to this site, so they will not be lost, they just have moved.
So if you want to find/buy my paintings online this will be the webshop where you will find them:
Logo etalagepoppenonline.be

And this will be the direct link to the paintings in this webshop:
https://www.etalagepoppenonline.be/c-4180506/unieke-schilderijen/

I will be making some new paintings in the near future.
I have not been painting for a while because is was busy with my work, renting mannequins and these last months, cleaning up my wharehouse, but once all that is done i will have time to start painting again.
And when i do i will post the results on this blogsite.

A painting called “Storm”

And it has been a storm …
I had just one canvas that i did not use yet, and so i tried to start painting about a week ago. It had been nearly a year ago that i made a painting so the start was not so easy.
The paint, and the colours went everywhere, but i just did not get the result that i wanted. The painting had no body, so i carried on and on and on…
The classic moment came when i decided to take a sponge over the whole painting creating a background of different colours, and from there on i started a whole new composition on the canvas.
The result was this acrylic painting on canvas with some stormy effects.
I called it “Storm”
The panting is made on a stretched canvas on a wooden frame 60×70 cm.

Here are some pictures from the whole painting as well as some more detailed views of the canvas.

The painting is now available for our flemish readers at:

I made some new paintings

After a time-out from painting, i bought some new material this week and made a new start.
I was’nt happy with the intensity of the colours i used and some combinations needed to change. So i bought some Galeria paints to see what the difference it would make, and must must say that it make a big difference.
The colours are more intens, and for the colours i choose, they feel warmer.
The canvas i bought is also from a better quality, all things that make a little difference.

Grain 6060
S
o this one i called “GRAIN”.
It’s a painting on a canvas 60×60 cm

Dancinred 6070
This one i called “DANCINRED”
It’s a painting on a canvas 60×70 cm
All my paintings are made with acrylic paint and the paintings are canvas on a wooden frame.

Did’nt have time for painting.

It has been a long time since i posted some new paintings, and the reason why is quiet obvious, i just did not make any new paintings lately.
I’ve been cleaning out my workspace, as i had a lot of decorationmaterial that i needed to get rid of, before i could reinstall my table and little corner for painting.

Now that the chelfs are empty i can start cleaning up the space, putting some paint on the wall and find a nice spot to install my painting-things.
Shortly the weather will improve, also a good thing, as i have no heating in my room.

In the meantime i still have my little gallery where i display the paintings that i made in the past.

And once i have new once i will post them here.

Yeah, i have my own gallery

Making art is one thing, but finding a place “space” to show is something else.
I’m lucky to have both. I can make paintings and i can show them to the people who are interested in my own gallery.
Gallery is maybe a big word, but i use the entrance to my showroom with mannequins to display my art.
Paintings and mannequins… that does’nt sound bad 😉

Two days a week my showroom for mannequins is open and so i will be showing my paintings at the same time using the entrance as a gallery.
You can visit the showroom and see the paintings at the next adress:
Geerdegemvaart 22
2800 Mechelen
Belgium
We are open mondays and fridays from 10 till 12 am and 2 till 5 pm
