To all the sweet,brave,creative and adventurous girls and boys whom I met here, a year of sweet surprises,big and little pleasures, sun and moon light and love. And keep amazing me please :)

A few days ago I caught a very bad cold and I'm feeling rather feverish . So I had to change my party plans but I will, I surely will have a drink to the new year and to you tonight (under my blanket on the sofa) Have a good time! xxx Renilde

My dear you feel like a déjà vu....

Still we are surrounded by a white world. 5 o'clock, icy pale blue light. The whiteness is holding back the darkness, for a while. Free afternnoon hours to sketch and paint. Listening to Misia, Roby Lakatos and Tracy Chapman. Barely another sound.

Above,  a collage of pieces I'm working on.

And another painting has been finished.
My dear you feel like a déjà vu (but I love you)     acryl on canvas   40x40 cm

Midwinter images

There was a visitor at the door.

Shining stars, day and night

Birds don't like the bitter callicarpa berries but I saw a hungry blackbird eating them.

The taste of a flying shake

Since 5 to 6 weeks now, I've been painting on canvas in acryl again. (I did some pieces in the past but not a lot) After working on paper for most of the time I needed to get used to this medium again. The plan is to keep on making paintings on canvas and to get to know the possibilities of acryl. Experimenting, figuring out,'s fun, sometimes time-consuming but I learn things. Sometimes I like what I see, sometimes I have to start over again and ..again.
Above you can see how I scribble down an idea of an image in my head, just a scribble and a few words in this case.
I've been working on 5 pieces and here is one of them.
It's rather small, 25 x30 cm, I liked to see what effect could be created on a small size canvas.

More snow and hearts

Red rosehip not only attracts birds.
Cold but very beautiful, winter offers its poetry.

And hearts, a garland of hearts, dancing softly between branches.
Beautiful gift from Nina of Temps perdu .
Thank you a lot Nina, it fits perfectly.

The garden seems to sleep.
There is an ancient silence.
Long are the nights.
Little lights guarding me through winterdays.
Playing shadows telling funny stories.
Daydreams in December are different from summerdreams.
