Sending your love

Want to send your love to someone special on valentine's day? Or maybe you want to send someone lots of love, just on an ordinary day? I've drawn some cards and they are for sale at 3.50 euro each and come with a red envelope. You can mail me, or see more pictures in my etsy shop.

Have a nice weekend! Next week I'll tell you about a project I am starting with.

to make more drawings and get more experienced and creative in my drawings...

Really small paintings...

These paintings measure 5*5 cm, I used them for some christmas cards.

I like this in abstract painting, that your hand sometimes does things you're not aware of, and when you look at your painting closely you find all sorts of things: movement, subtle working of colours, contrast, lines and sometimes really strong pictures. Would be nice to make these small paintings into large ones, only I find it very difficult: the lightness of the movement is not so light anymore and seems forced.

Anyway, a bit of reflection on my own work at the start of this new year. What will 2011 bring for anyone of us?
