Where an artist feels at home. Probably not all artists, but this one! Even though I do not think twice about making a mess when I paint (stains on my clothes prove it:) ), but like objects to have a certain place. It borders somewhat on minimalism, but I do not mind having two or three of the same items


Fragile, but treasured

Artsy hall, but airy
These wood statues are from Holland, which were
part of a stained glass bay window ( estimated 1930).
My oil painting (30 x 40 inch)  of the chess board is about
the repositioning in 2008.

Begin with C:
Week’s Favorite: the pond
Odd Angle (reflect in window car)


A place to reflect on how “To Be”
making room in my mind for new creativity
(The Random (R), ABC Wed – to BE, Weekend Reflection)






















Feel at home in the country when not seeing other human beings,
except for hubby for days on end, but also am comfortable in the
city, with many people around, cars, bikes, lots of activity.
“The kosterij” is the verger’s house. Originally was the house of the
one who took care of the church. Now it’s a restaurant in Groningen, Holland

Thought it would be fun to separate the reflection of the buildings
across for the odd angle
(Fri Hunt)






Often  some curious deer or squirrel nearby to smile at
(Sat. Critters)





To look up at the sky and to see “what’s going on today!”






Friendly shops nearby, and I’m in my element.

    It was a goodbye gift from friends who returned to the UK to live. You probably can relate to this because of your hubby’s job, that some goodbye’s are harder than others:)

  20. jesh stg says:

    People who love to travel probably have some things in common! You may have missed it, but I just take photos, my real art is here:)

  21. jesh stg says:

  29. Eileen says:

    Hello, love the sky shot, pretty flowers and the cute deer. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

  30. scotiaspinner says:

    I just love the photo of the deer! The Kostery restaurant appears to have some odd angles too – looks like it is not quite straight in the walls. I would love to visit there! Your first shot of the flowers is stunning – so fragile and delicate.

  31. Carol Carson says:

    So much here to admire and think about. The painting of the chess pieces and its significance is beautiful. The bicycles caught my eye. The wonderful wooden sculpture too. And many of your photographs – I love looking at reflections in parked car windows. Your thoughts about feeling at home both in the country and in the midst of hustle and bustle made me wonder about my own comfort in both circumstances.

  32. Teresa says:

    What a great assortment of images! I absolutely love the chess board painting! Adorable deer. Thanks so much for joining Friday’s Hunt. Have a great week!
