Yesterday was a sunny day, just perfect for art-loving public to walk through the old streets of Middelburg and visit all the different galleries that opened their doors at the “Art- and Cultural Route.” There’s one little gallery that belongs to Sandra van der Meulen and she had asked me to be her guest-artist on this first day of May. Sandra makes beautiful art and we certainly have a connection and see similarities in our art, although it is completely different at the same time. I took some photos so you can see for yourself. You can find more of Sandra’s work at her website.
It was really a beautiful day and it looks like this photo was taken in the streets of some Mediterranean town… it is, however, taken in one of those sweet backstreets of Middelburg! Sandra in front of her atelier/gallery.
Sandra’s art against the wall, and my art journals on the table in the middle. It was a perfect combination!
From another angle…
Of course I wanted to thank Sandra for the opportunity she gave me to exhibit my journals, so I made a little journal [with her art and ‘being’ in mind] that I gave her as a present.
Many people took advantage of the nice weather to visit the exhibition and I saw and spoke a lot of enthusiastic and inspiring visitors.
I look back on this day with gratitude and a smile on my face.
And now it’s Monday… time to finish my ‘quick drawings’ that I started in April (four prompts/drawings to go and then I have finished the 30-days-drawings ‘challenge.’) Next on the prompt list is “Skeleton Key”… I thank you for your visit and wish you a wonderful, sunny week.

Geweldig dat het zo’n fijne dag werd voor jullie.
En het boekje dat je maakte voor Sandra is weer een juweeltje geworden.

Congratulations on such an exciting opportunity dear Marit!
Sandra’s artwork look very interesting and your colorful journals look great there!
Everytime you say “Middleburg” you know it makes my heart jump a little but then I remember you and your Dutch Middleburg are not just down the road 🙂
Very happy for you … I hope this experience will lead to more opportunities for you to share your amazing artwork.
Happy May dear one oxo
How wonderful for you and how wonderful for her to get one of your great journals.

Thank you so much for the mini-journal, Marit. I just love it.
It’s a lovely souvenir of a special open-atelier Sunday.
I really enjoyed exhibiting together.
