A couple of months ago I showed you my black and white paintings. Last week I created a new exhibition in my gallery: neat and strict, as I like it. In the small cabinet with the glass pannels is work by my son Jacob on display – oil paintings and drawings. Very sober work, which suits my own work in this exhibition. It gives me a good feeling that the exhibition is ready, as there’s quite a few chores coming up. Amongst other things I’m painting the timber walls of the atelier; a much needed job. It’s a lot of work, and we’ll show you the results of that in a future post.
So far we haven’t really seen winter here, but last week for just a few moments it was a little white outside. In one of the garden photos you can see a little campanula in full bloom – quite a miracle in January! Like us, our cat Frida is missing her friend Diesel a lot. She really needs some extra attention, so there’s a lot of comforting and hugs.
