Over the last six weeks I taught two online workshops and I spend
a lot of time in the workshop-community with a bunch of ladies (no
guys this time… ) Both groups were very enthusiastic and the albums
in the (closed) community got filled with art work that really blew me away!
So much so, that now the workshop has come to an end, I want to show
you – my blogreaders – some of the art that was made in the classes.
It is just a grip from each workshop but there is more to see in the gallery
on the website (see the link at the end of this post)
So today’s post has no art made by me – I did create last weekend (yep,
my Muse returned but she needs pampering and petting to get back to work…)
I will show you that on Friday.

#10 Quirky – Dutch – Summer /
Grillig – Hollands – Zomer
The day is halfway and I’m still running around like (as we say in
the Netherlands) a headless chicken…
I uploaded the photos for this post earlier today, but I could not find
words to go in this post. Not even the title… My head is somewhere else.
How come? Well, FEATURING was send to the print office today!
OHMY – In a week or so, the magazine will be born on paper.
A real magazine, MY magazine… I will be able to flip through the pages.
I’m so curious how you guys are going to like it!
It really is going to happen now and yes, I am nervous to the bone.
Sooo, I will show you last weeks artwork without much words.
I’m sure you’ll understand
It’s the second day of my favourite month: September.
I love the smell of Autumn in the air.
I love the sun standing low at the horizon, making long shadows.
I love the quietness of this month.
September always makes me a bit melancholic too.
Somewhat like in the song ‘September morning’ by Neil Diamond.
I’m far from being a fan, but I keep that one CD especially for that song,
and I only play it in September. Once.
(After all, I can’t have melancholy developing into a depression.)
Did you miss me last Friday?
I was here:
After all the hard work last weeks, I needed a little break.
My ‘men’ and I stayed with my parents.
We visited an art exhibition and ofcourse I had to say hello
to my beloved waves…
Hi there friends! How was your weekend? Mine was cold, stormy and rainy
(Outside that is. Inside the house I made it comfortable and put all kinds of
stuff on the big table… paint, glue, brushes – you get the idea. The result is
at the end of this post.) It feels like Summer is coming to an end while I didn’t
even see the sun… we experienced only a few sunny days – just to remind me
how it feels to wear a skirt – and then temperatures dropped again.
With August on the calendar, and light getting shorter in the evenings, it sure
feels like fall now! I decided to turn the ‘bad’ into ‘good’ and made plans for the
upcoming season then!
