queen of colors

I am about to start sounding like a broken record, but one day late, means the Queen of Colors is still fighting that ugly sickness. Was it two weeks or three already, I can't recall. Going back and forth ended in taking antibiotics and today, seriously, for the first time in a while, I feel more like a human again. There has been a gorgeous day out in the wood last week, but maybe baby, that had been a bit too soon. I had to spend the long weekend in bed. Again. So today is my first complete day in the studio. With no couch or bed in between. Hurray. I don't know what hit us this time, but looking around it seems, we are not the only ones. And it is not even Winter yet. Mind that sarcasm, I am only happy to see some light here today and I very much wish it will stay that day.

Other than that, I went to Supermarkt for the very first time and it was great. Looking forward to a one day seminar over there by the end of the week. I gave an interview for a newspaper, who are doing a little portrait about me. A painting I have sold to someone in Ohio, finally landed safe in the collectors hands, after getting lost in someone else's P.O. BOX. Holy Canneloni, what a relief. And I've talked to my grandmother on the phone. It had been a while and every time I talk to her it is such a pleasure, I secretly promise myself, to do it more often.

So, I will stick to Thyme Tea over the next days and keep telling the ones I love, a little more, how much I actually do. Oh, and there will be a lot more art over here again soon.



  1. goodness, i'm glad that you're on the mend. that's too long to feel sick and away from your studio.
    how fun about the interview! and what a relief the painting ended up in it's rightful home.
    do you have a dog for that chew toy? :)
