Hi there, how are you doing? I have been busy preparing my new entry of GTS 2018 (Global Talent Search) from Lilla Rogers Studio which is coming up on air this Monday. Here is a little glimpse of my studio. Hope you like it. I will organize more and each month I will have new artwork on my wall.
These made me happy. By being alone and do my own thing keeps me calm. This year is my self-development year. My art grows together with Alice. Hopefully she will expand her creativity in her way with a good influence from us.
Wish you all a great evening. Greetings from Amsterdam.
Thank you for being around in my life. It’s a destiny that we met, talked or learned about each other.
I do sometimes organize Chinese Ink Painting workshops in Amsterdam. See below is the one we did last year in my old studio.
It is always my dream to visit more Dutch charming village and able to paint Plein Air. I was invited by my friend Rik Verdenius to join a workshop organized by Jan Min. They both are Watercolorist, master member of IWS World, committee member of IWS Holland.
We met in the little village near Hilversum, it is called Spakenburg, the weather is perfect for plein air. I can not be happier.
Mom what is love?
What? Why? Suddenly Alice asked this morning? We all have been in love or love someone or something in our life. But how to explain to a 3 years old, I pounded and here is my answer
Love is a big word. Love means a lot to many people.
Love means forgiveness; if someone hurts you, you still give them a hug when they are hurting;
Love means caring; you will not mind sleep less getting up early to prepare the best breakfast you can for the family;
Love means you are unselfish; you give, you share and you accept others;
Love just like sun shines light in the dark room; like the water for the thirsty plants; like the hug mom gives to a crying baby;
Love is everything and everywhere. When you love someone or something in your life, you will feel having a butterfly in your stomach and you are happy;
Love brings people together, love means more than kisses, love is the best gift.
Alice found love of her life. She loves to draw. She wants to sell her art today and go to New York with me next year to sell our work.
I am starting a personal project. It is called "Weekend Bouquet". I got this idea from the flower companies. Each colleague will leave on Friday with a weekend bouquet. It is a way to thank the colleagues for their hard work of the week.
I want to give back to the society by design weekly weekend bouquet card to share on my facebook page to say thank you family and friends and want to say to them.
Hello world, it is very scary, I put myself out here to write my first ever blog post here. Nowadays every artist uses Instagram to show their work. Why the blog?
Simple reason: It is my visual journal to record what inspires, motivates and gets me going as an artist.
It is not anything new to have a sketch book as an artist. Actually many of us have bought and used many sketch books. But does any one of us keep up doing sketches daily? I wish I could do more. By having this blog post job, I wish to motivate myself and others who will now make time to draw and doodle.
I am not going to make a long story each time. But just show up and keep it simple with my drawings or pictures which related to the world of art, design and illustration.
Simple rules for myself to keep on going:
- Show up, I can not promise that I will write each single day, but I will try to write each week.
- Keep it interesting. I will show up my own pictures and illustrations. These are all copyright protected. Please respect me as an artist. Do not use my images without my written permission.
