all those tiny little seeds
which become the finest vegetables
in such a short time....

i made a portrait of a chard leaf
using watercolor and colored pencil

i have 'tiny' time for other things than my new job
sorry! 
but i will visit you all as soon as possible 
bye!



al die kleine zaadjes
die de mooiste groenten worden
in zo'n korte tijd ....

ik maakte een portret van een snijbiet blad
met aquarel en kleurpotlood

ik heb weinig tijd voor andere dingen dan mijn nieuwe baan
sorry! 
maar ik zal jullie allen zo snel mogelijk bezoeken
dag!

drawing challenge 173: I M A G E



the drawing challenge continues! 

dear woolf Nadine's theme this week
please visit her blog for the link to the other participants

'an image is worth a thousand words'

that's the saying
but is an image still worth that much nowadays?
with its volatility and speed
all those millions of images per day on instagram only
and since a few weeks i am one of them ;^))
all the sharing and showing....
we are on a path, can we change that? 
and, do we want to change that?

all those questions in my head this week
and like Nadine i went through images
in real and on my computer
this image comes from my instagram account

fine theme and challenge
it makes me think
so.... thanXX Nadine!
and hooray! for the drawing challenge

monthly quote: August




'A party without cake is 
just a meeting.'
                           Julia Child

thirteen years ago, after over ten years, i stopped working as a teacher
because we moved from Rotterdam to the village where we still live
but....
from today i am re-employed as a teacher at the HMCollege
this time in Amsterdam
time for cake!!  ;^)))
oops!.... too late to photograph


dertien jaar geleden, na ruim tien jaar, stopte ik met werken als leraar
omdat we verhuisden van Rotterdam naar het dorp waar we nog steeds wonen
maar....
vanaf vandaag ben ik opnieuw in dienst als docent aan het HMCollege
deze keer in Amsterdam
tijd voor taart!!  ;^))
oeps!.... te laat om te fotograferen

#sailing #fryslan











tusken blau en grien....

i am home
and that's fine
but
i miss the wideness of Fryslan
and the sound of the waves
against the hull of TREES

you can follow me on instagram




tusken blau en grien....

ik ben thuis
en dat is fijn
maar
ik mis de weidsheid van Fryslan
en het geluid van de golven
tegen de romp van TREES

je kunt me volgen op instagram
