so lucky ... !

Reaching for the stars ...
why not ?

Twenty years ago this very day,
I had a major operation
after being diagnosed with breast cancer
on Friday the 13th
(no, I'm NOT superstitious, but I remember
that day very well, when my world came tumbling down)

It took me a while to get things back on track,
before I even trusted to reach for the stars.

It all worked out well
and I'm happy to be still here,
and I now know you have to reach for the stars
(at least try !)

Just busy, busy, busy
with more little paintings :

it is such FUN

sending love ...

When you leave out
what the commerce likes to do with Valentine Day ...
it's just fun
to send a bit of love
into the world !

This is only a quarter (!)
of a new small painting,
gouache on paper
(9 x 14 cm)

A small token of love
to someone special ?

Happy Valentine

second month, second day ...

Oh yes, January is already gone !

I'm still just in the mood for painting.
Slowly, day by day
new small paintings grow
to their final state.

It's still winter,
thought not really cold with ice or snow
(just WET)
But in the garden the first signs
that spring isn't thát far away,
are already visible :
snowdrops, aconites and very small crocuses !

Why not join all the happy green in the garden ...
So I started with a very "springy" background
for another painting

THIS will take a while
but here on my painting it smells like spring !

growing from "scratch"

"Dandelion - meeting"
(22 x 12 cm  ,  8.65 x 4.70")

And yes, there are more little paintings,
so another bit ...
