Thank you all for your kind comments both on and off the blog. It is much appreciated. And a bit of a relieve that apparently some of you still like to read blogs. ;-)
I think I'll just start with an 'around here lately' post. I know I will never catch up on more than a year of not blogging, but I can at least look back on the last few months through some photographs, right?
Here we go!
|Found a heart at the beach. A blackened heart, but still...|
|There was a bear-hunt in our town during the height of corona. I did not have a bear, but this bunny with a hat played the part.|
|Spring brought fresh daffodils ....|
|....and beautiful blossoms.|
|I turned fifty! The doll was a gift from my sisters, because I'm an old lady now. A Sara. Is that just a Dutch thing?|
|I was spoiled with lots of flowers and gifts and cards.|
|This is the ferry for the island of Ameland, which for some unknown reason showed up in Harlingen where our ferry departs.|
|Reading magazines and artsy books. The art journal book was a birthday gift.|
|Participated in three readathons, this one was last April.|
|On Kingsday the local baker treated everyone on the island to some traditional pastry (a tompouce).|
|I finished several journals...|
|...and also started several new ones. And no, those are not all my fountain pens.|
|Working through this book to loosen up my drawing style and broaden my horizon.|
|Learned how to make a facemask...|
|... and then made several more.|
|Quiet Sunday mornings are the best.|
|Playing in the studio.|
|Got tendonitis. The official name is Quervain Syndrome, which is a fancy name for a shitty thing.|
|Lots of drawing on the iPad.|
|My latest journal acquisition plus some cute cat paperclips that I couldn't resit. This journal is now in use.|
|Testing out papers, because sometimes you have to know what it can take.|
|Me on the ferry with facemask and wrist brace. I look decidedly dangerous. ;-)|
And that's been my world in a nutshell recently.
Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy day.
