‘You’re taking the bike?? In this weather? Are you nuts????’ ‘ No, I’m Dutch’
I found this drawing in a stack of paper in my studio. The birds may be part of a new story to come…
It is quiet in the house so early in the morning. I hear the birds sing. No, it is not singing, it sounds more like chattering:
‘How did you sleep, love?’
‘Quite well, actually. The cat of the neighbours scared the shit out of me only once this night.’
‘Good for you! Well, have a nice day, love!’
‘You too! Kiss, kiss!’
‘Have a nice cup of tea, love!’
I made this one in honour of Heather and Jan, who came to visit me the other day. We had a conversation about the friendlyness in the English language.
This is a paper collage and drawing in which I later put some of my patterns. I reworked that again digital. A whole lot of work for one image and I think there is some more work to do on this one. It is funny: the more I know about drawing, scanning and digital reworking the longer it takes to finish a piece of art.
Oh darling, my clothes are shiny and bright and my heart is bursting! Please take me out!

I’m glad I like orange. How else can one survive Kingsday in The Netherlands?
