A fresh start

I love fresh starts like birthdays and new years, but I also love the idea that we can get up every morning and start over.

A new year, a new cycle, full of possibilities, like a white, fresh canvas ... isn't it exciting?
We had a very busy and social time around christmas and now, January seems to start kind of slowly, quietly. I am in preparation mode, still pondering about all the things i want to do. Paintings, courses, designs, a book? I believe that, when we nourish our roots, juices will rise in time, and plants will start to grow. A recent painting that fits the mood of the moment, inspired by a beautiful rose quartz i have on my desk, and and the element of water. 
Hope you're having a gentle, easy and positive start to your january and look forward to visit you soon!


  1. Happy New year dear friend!

  3. Thank you my dear friend, for your wishes for a gentle start to the new year; that is exactly what I hope for for you, for all of us. To live a more gentle life is what I WANT and after two weeks off from work I go back this morning. It's never gentle at work, but I can try to be my best at it....so here I go.

    LOVELY COLORS! Have a super day!
