Dear reader,


Today I am again not taking a lot time to create. It is very sunny over here and I am taking half a day off.

But: I only looked around to do something really small, and I saw a small piece of paper with Dutch English translations. It is from a list of the  most used English words, that secondary school children need to know: the very basics. My daughter is wrestling with her English, so my husband printed this out.

And since I am now communicating so much in English (and really feeling very frustrated about that sometimes), he printed it out again for me too. Some copies were double, so I used one of them to put some colours on. I was very surprised that Green Gold and Quinocradone Magenta mix to such a beautiful orange/brown colour.

    Thanks Dotty!
    Indeed, it is fun, the Dutch-English connection. I don’t hope I sound grumpy in my post of today (15th), about my frustration with going deeper with English. The world of languages is so rich!

    love this piece for its dutch-english underlayer and for your playfulness in picking it up for a quick paint on a sunny day that you took as a half work day—hooray for you! and hooray for the FEEST of marks and colors!
