Wednesday Wanderings (14)

  So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality, nothing is more damaging to the...

Wednesday Wanderings (13)

One morning after waking up (that takes some time you know), I felt something had changed. The sun was out, the light was different and the air was suddenly softer. I moved pillows around on our kitchen floor so my dogs, and especially Ravasz the senior dog, could sleep softly...

Wednesday Wanderings (12)

I can't move. An extremely tired dog is sleeping on my feet. And interrupting that would be a crime against cuteness.  I sit on my bed with my computer on my lap, looking back on a few incredible busy (but offline) days and working on plans for the future. As dreams...

Wednesday Wanderings (11)

Last week was a bit of a quiet week without much wandering around in the woods. Instead, I did everything to not get sick like Joeri (at least one person has to keep things going, right? ;-) ) and we had to keep our heads up despite the sad news...

Wednesday Wanderings (10)

It's this strange and tricky weather where, from inside, you get the feeling that there is a hint of spring weather in the air. The sun is shining, happy birds fly around the feeders, and the light,...

When we drive from our little village in the woods to Stockholm, it's like entering another world. Perhaps, in a way, a world that we know. A place of energy and color but also noise and impatience. When we traveled through Sweden before moving here, we didn't really pay attention between...

I'll admit, I am obsessed with ice and its textures, so I just post all the photographs I took at this little waterfall :-)  -- don't say I didn't warn you! You can also follow me on Instagram and Facebook....

Wednesday Wanderings (07)

After weeks without sunlight, our black and white world was suddenly an attractive explosion of the most beautiful colors. Hellow blues and oranges and hints of pink! We made some raisin bread sandwiches (delicious bread by Brödladan, the best bakery in our area- and they are Belgian) boiled some water for...

Wednesday Wanderings (06)

What comes first, the weather or your mood? Or is it the mood that decides your interpretation of the light? Most days, foggy and dark weather makes me happy but in a very calm way. The last few days however I feel like it's time for the sun to come out....

Inside my sketchbook

We don't meet as often as I would like, the sketchbook and I. The cold winter days are short and dark and I'm struggling to fit everything that I want to do in the few hours of light. And it's too cold to paint or draw outside, especially since I'm...
