This last year passed by so quickly like the snowstorm clouds in this pastel painting.

It has been a really good year and one thing that was really confirmed by it was the following: Pursue your dreams, make plans and stick to them. Something good will come out of it if you persevere. My good things are two solo exibitions and I am looking forward to these projects. Unfortunately this means my workshops will have to stop because they take a lot of my energy which I need for my other projects. I will miss you guys because through my workshops I have met so many nice people and boy what have we laughed. Thanks to all of you.
This brand new year lies ahead and I can’t wait that it gets started and my projects take shape. This will be hard work as well but that is how creativity and the life of an artists goes. Moments of pure joy and fun and moments when you really need to believe in yourself.
I will keep on blogging about these processes right here. So stay tuned.
Happy New Year to all of you!
