Geishas and Samurai

By spotogspindel | May 18, 2009

My sister Astri has just opened an online interior shop: Velkommen! And what good is an interior without art!? So now she is selling a couple of my pictures. (The copyright sign isn´t on the original of course, but you knew that, didn´t you 🙂 )

These are part of an Eastern inspiration-series. It is a  photo-collage, printed on canvas (color-guarantee of 85 years!) and framed with a flat, 3 cm black, matte frame. They are both ca 30 x 45 cm.

    Oh these are cool…wouldn’t it be fun to see them in the fancy house they end up in…you encourage me to do more Photoshop. In fact the class I just took on Photo shop collage helped me get free and try all kinds of silly buttons on the final cut pro movie program…I have never used so many different things..but with a animated silly thing I can just be FREE!!! so much fun.

    They look so vintage! Does the Chinese writing actually translate into a poem or title or signature? Very nice

    The writing is old Japanese calligraphy. I don´t know what it says, unfortunately, only that it is parts of old poetry.

    And they are vintage photos originally. I´ve worked with the colors and added a layer of my sofa-cushion (!), made from chinese brocade silk amongst other things.
    Thanks for the compliments 🙂

    The samurai is absolutely brilliant! I will be back…often…to see what you have done. Lovely work.
