What Will She Paint?

So many friends I met here...!

Wednesday, July 03, 2013


Have been very absent from this blog
because ... since February I have been preparing
for a month in Europe
and had 

three painting exhibits  - YES
this one in a beautiful building "Het Keerpunt" 
(The Turn Around) in Amsterdam
you see three of the twelve paintings I was showing 

this one in Rotterdam
for a long time the biggest harbor on
the globe till Shanghai took first place

 in Heerhugowaard (N. of Amsterdam),  am the one with the scarf

three workshops in three different cities
on painting

I like to do it from 6 years old and up
to create the idea that there are no limits 
with painting and art

and have painted for three audiences
sorry a little blurry, but it tells my favorite part
what people say, and what my paintings evoke

In between the events I still had time though to catch up 
with friends and family. So surprised many were growing
white orchids in their living room

Things are sizzling right now in my corner, 
even more important,
I feel I have grown by leaps and bounds,
and gained so many special experiences..

I am reminded of the joke, "Do they have the 4th of July in the Netherlands?"
"Yes. It's between the 3rd and the 5th."
Happy holiday!
