"seize" the moment...

Okay, so how do you write that: seize, siege, [siiieess] the moment, I am at a loss here, I suddenly have no clue how to write that word... aah..
anyway: this morning started a bit cold here, only 6 degrees... But the sun was already there, so I took my camera and went for a small walk to capture this really lovely light of this early morning, and it was brilliant...
So I wanna tell you, seize the moment, go out and enjoy the sun, enjoy the light, enjoy those little glimpses of nature that can make your day... just do it, it may take you only 10 minutes, but do it!

Hand-made is one of the trends!

This week I read an article about the trends of next year, and one small part was about the trend of hand-made articles (or "handwerk" as they say in Dutch). They think that hand-made knitting, woodwork and so on will be THE thing in the nearby future, and that makes me happy of course. On the internet it is already a trend, and there are so many designers who make really nice things, I hope it will be a trend that will last!

What I've been up to?

Hey, time goes by easily... What I've been up to? I am now at the moment preparing some paintings which will be exhibitioned in my brother's practice in Delft. I need to make a small portfolio for that with pictures, prices, information and so on.
I am doing some administration, I am working on an assignment for my aunt, I have finished two paintings which I am quite proud of (and happy to have finished... because the finishing touch took me a long time, and I would like to get on with some other ideas), I have been busy for church, and I am busy with making some ideas with textile.
Yesterday, my mind was in a sort of spin, because I had been working so concentrated that I felt a bit dizzy... But I am fine, don't worry.
The image is just one of a series of some drawing I have been doing with pastel crayons, the picture is a bit dark, but you'll get the idea.
Ok, on to work now... no I am not stressed, just spinning...

This Saturday my family is coming to visit my workstudio... so I'd better clean up, put some fresh flowers, show my paintings and so on. Lots to do!
