|So green, so tranquil, so beautiful.|
|A narrow path through the dunes. I walked many paths.|
|In the Groninger Museum there was an exhibit by Yin Xiuzhen.|
|Her work just blew me away! Wow!|
|Most of my days however were spent going on long lazy hikes.|
|And everything was in bloom!|
|I even took a self portrait I actually like (very rare).|
|I was surprised how well my phone could photograph these close ups of flowers.|
|And of course I walked on the beach a lot too, there was a lot of wind.|
Now I have been back to work for two days already and I'm slowly getting back into my regular routine, but it's not easy after 16 days of total freedom. I wish my job didn't take up so much of my time, but of course I can't do without it either, since both my cat and I like a roof over our head and food on the table. ;-)
I'm closing off with a little bragging, because Ricë Freeman Zachery asked me if she could use my blogpost on my travelbag of art supplies for her blog on the wonderful Create Mixed Media site. If you don't know about this site yet, go check it out, because it's like a treasure trove of inspiration and ideas. Anyway, Ricë not only mentioned me, I actually got to give some tips on traveling with art supplies, like I'm an expert or something. I was ever so flattered! You can read the post here. Read her other posts too and above all: check out her podcasts, there's nothing like them. She really knows how to talk to artists.
And with that I end my vacation blogging. I'm way behind on other peoples blogs and on my yahoo groups, so if you think I've been ignoring you I...well actually... I have been ignoring you. I was on vacation! But I haven't forgotten my blogsy pals so this week I'll try to catch up with everybody, promise.
Wishing you all a wonderful and very artsy week. Next time I will show some journal pages! Until then!
