hip, hip, hurrah

This week is my blog's birthday, it's 1 year old! Hip, hip, hurrah!
As I started I did not know what to expect, I just wanted to share my work. I had no idea how the blog-world works and how many people share their stuff, whatever it is. Soon it became a small addiction and as I had my first followers, it became even more fun to read their thoughts. It's amazing how many nice people I have met in this blog-world-thing, even I haven't seen you in personal. Making this blog does not feel as unpersonal and "not real" as many people say about the digital world. It really was a big surprise to me what this blog turned into and that's just because of your comments and support! Thank you all and I wish I could treat you all to some homemade cake!

silly sorrow part 6

It's not a very good picture of another cabinet of mine, but I hope you get the idea. I like it: this "cool" girl is walking her silly birds. I don't have a title yet, I have to think a bit more about that.
I hope you all have a nice weekend!

it's good for the walls

Now that our sunroom is finally done, I found a good spot for my work "100 ways to Taka-Tuka-Land". I like this work, but it's quite big, so I'm happy that there is now a wall big enough in the house for this piece!

oh so sweet

I found this picture of me at the age of 4, sitting behind my dad's drawing table and working really hard... I made this drawing inspired by it. I like it, but maybe that is just because it's so nostalgic for me?

one hundred times before

Sometimes the most normal and daily things can be inspiration for a drawing. Like hanging out the washing...

state of the art

SCHUNCK* is a new kind of multidisciplinary cultural institution that is specialised in Modernity and Urban Culture within international contemporary art and culture. Every second year they organize an exhibition that shows "the state of the art" of professional artists in this region. You can only apply if you have an connection with the city Heerlen or "Parkstad".

I send in my Pippi-drawings and they want to show 4 of them! I'm really happy an excited and looking forward to see the drawings in an actual nice space. More information in November for those who want to visit.

like a rose

I finished the painting on the door I was working on. It's very difficult to take a nice picture of it. The colours get very bright but I hope you'll get an idea.... I'm very happy with it, also because we have lots of plants and flowers in that room. Some of you asked me if it's special paint and yes, it is. So if you want to try it for yourself, asked for glass-paint, I'm looking forward to your works!
