Life at the beach

Endless views, wind, sand, sea-birds,
it is nice to be at a quiet beach.

Ha, you see the shadow flying by?

Dutch tiles no. 2

Earlier I wrote a blog on Dutch tiles which I found in the city.
This time I went to an old bakery and saw these lovely floor tiles.
Sometimes these old floors are demolished, but fortunately we also 
have some salvage hunters here in the Netherlands and they collect and re-sell these floors.

On the last photo you see the oven, and the blue and white checkered clothing,
which is a typical baker costume.

Hello colours!

 Nature's colours: slowly they are turning to another season...

I have made these bracelets, hand-knit from cotton, bit of the same colours.
But here it is still summer and we are enjoying it! Autumn has to wait for a bit...

On my desk in June...

On my small desk are watercolours, pen and pencil and coffee :).
So this is the start of my drawing...

And here is the end result! It is a kind of a self-portrait I think 
(for lack of another live model...).

Inspiration diy

I saw this fellow at IKEA, I love these diy toys/puppets,
they make me laugh.
I could make dozens of these but you know... where would you leave them,
especially when your housemates do not appreciate them...
It would be great to make a series for a hospital or something.

Fun with owls

I have been drawing owls,
this one is rather sweet:

Sun, water, beach

Summer-temperatures here,
so I've been going to the waterside,
enjoying fun, family, wind and water.
