Dear readers,


Today I started my day really frustrated and angry and afraid of everything that might have gone wrong: my e-mail adress might be infected or so: many people don’t receive my e-mails, and also not my newsletter. I don’t know how to handle this: the world of internet and hosting services and website has always been always fuzzy to me, and now I have quite a complex problem I don’t know how to proceed.

So I started my painting day with all this frustration in my body. Tension all over the place. I really thought: I don’t care what anybody thinks, I am going to do what I want. If I want to make childish crayon drawings on my painting: I am going to do that. I don’t care what anybody thinks (as if people are so busy with thinking about my art…. ;-))

So I did. I enjoyed it very much. Don’t know how to proceed, but in art, that is no problem. In life maybe it is. Or not. Or only in case of computer problems….

    Thanks so much Dotty for our ongoing conversations.
    It is indeed one of the large canvases. It might not change that much anymore. We’ll see. I actually like all the small details!

    Love your post, love your painting!

    YES, YES, YES. Your painting from doing what you want, to satisfy your inner needs and not anyone else’s, sounds just RIGHT. It is what I seek in my own painting.

    Is this a large canvas again? I love it in its fullness, and I love the little compositions you can create in photos of small excerpts from the larger work.

    I am SO sorry about your internet headaches. I hope they resolve SOON.
