Bernard Handick

I hope you are all enjoying your Saturday. I had a busy week and that somehow got the better of me. I’m feeling quite exhausted. The thing with a small child is that you simply never get a moment to yourself, well at least not a moment that lasts more than a small hour. I remember the days before I was ¬†a mother, devoted to just organizing my kitchen cupboards or something. I have to confess I have no idea what’s in there now. Somehow everything seems dirty and in constant disarray and since I’m quite the control freak this weighs upon me. I have to remind myself there is a world of inspiration out there! With people like Bernard Handick who makes beautiful photographs and mixed media works. You can see more of his work here.

Using Pinterest can be very comforting. You find out things about yourself you didn’t have a clue you had, like a dormant love for cute animal photo’s or you discover a distinct pattern in pinning. As I was searching for some inspiration I stumbled on the work of Natalie Nicklin and it was just the kind of thing that really resonated with me. I think she uses the perfect colour palet and the combination of abstract modern elements with the old fashioned collage is just beautiful. It lifted my spirits big time. What do you think? {1.
