I’m writing this post sitting outside and enjoying our garden. Looking around me, my mind keeps wandering. I see so many beautiful flowers, blending from one colour into another. What I see is beauty and harmony – food for my soul. Lots is happening in the garden. The roses are in bloom, and it’s a feast of flowers! I really just want to be in the garden. The same goes for Sietske, who’s been taking the beautiful photographs in this post again. I’ve not just sat in the garden though, I’ve done some painting too. Two new paintings have appeared. They usually feature soft hues as well. Not so strange of course, as I search for harmony in both my work and my garden.
Jacob and A stayed over for a week last May together with A’s sister. It was beautiful, cozy, and inspiring. Jacob and I curated a new exhibition of works by the both of us, and we’re very happy with the results. But besides holidaying, there was labour done as well: Jacob surprised me one morning by getting up very early and paint the tiles and a wall in the gallery. It’s all looking spick and span again!
