tap tap art

When I made this collage it reminded me of a toy we had as children. You remember those geometric wooden shapes in bright colors that had a little hole in it? You could tap a nail through the hole to fasten the wood to a soft underground. You could make gorgeous mosaics.

By the way, this image is available as a signed Fine Art Giclée Print here. There are several sizes available.

take the colorful road

Today my parents would have had their birthdays. My father would have turned 90 years old and my mother 93. They are still missed a lot. But today we also remember what they gave us. For instance they gave us a whole bunch of brothers and sisters with whom we can share life and memories. But they also gave us a way of looking at life like it is a colorful road, where there is a lot of interesting stuff and people to see and where stories are spread all over the place.

I am forever grateful for that. Thanks Mom and Dad!

sometimes it is difficult to finish a project

In 1999 I wrote a small story that accompagnied a couple of sketches like the second one you see here. Over the years I have rewritten and redrawn this story time and time again. Two years ago I was sure it was finished and ready for publication.

However I am working on it again. In the 2019 version the second image is replaced with the first one.

It is time to wrap this baby up, Eyck!
