On my own….

On my own….

My husband is away for a four month art residency in Paris (as a composer/musician). Exciting for him, and for me too, since I'm on my own now with two growing up children and a household to run ;-)! He will be back here often, Paris is not that far from here. But...

Daily Painting: Painting with Presence

Daily Painting: Painting with Presence

Lately I've been thinking a lot about the concept of 'Painting with Presence'. As you most probably know, I'm very inspired by spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle. One of his core concepts is 'Presence'. A way of being in the world that's not based on your thinking mind,...

Dear readers,   Today, I made another bookmark. There are only 9 workdays left (and a lot of tasks on my plate) until my holiday starts - so I feel 'in a hurry'. But then I thought: I can paint something really small. For instance this bookmark:I hope you have a...

Daily Painting: 15 x 15 cm

Dear readers,   Today, I felt in a hurry. (Always good to check in with myself, at such a moment - why am I in a hurry? Do I think a future moment is better than this one?). Anyway - I wanted to finish a video for my online course 'The Art of Now', soon to be...
