The colours in this one are hard to transfer to a digital screen without insulting the original artwork. The first two close-up pictures communicate the depth of colour in this work better than the last two pictures do. The abstract and geometric character of this work is different from what I normally do, but I like the change to keep things fresh.

But quite honestly, I don’t feel like talking too much about it. I have been in a state of chaos for the last few days. I impulsively decided to move over the weekend (same house, bigger room). So besides finishing new paintings & preparing for the exhibition of 13/14 September and working on a week worth of teaching material for next week (I promise to tell you all about it), I am also painting walls & reorganising in between.

I don’t have time for this madness.

But hey, I have loads of extra space now. Which is worth the madness I guess.

I am hoping to update you more eloquently on my creative projects soon. But for now: sleep.

    I feel you on the chaos. I’ve been busy for the past 2 weeks (and will be until December)
    But it’s worth it, specially if it’s working on dreams I want to make a reality.
    Speaking of dreams, sleeping helps our brains. ;)

    wow love all the different facets of color :)
    I’m in the middle of cleaning my sewing room, it so hard to go through everything, and I hope to get back into the swing of things over the long weekend

    I love the colors and angles.

    My family is in the process of moving (new house), which has made me feel crazy at times ;). Sometimes it’s just time for sleep.
