The most lovable sign of spring is seeing butterflies again. They need sunny weather. When the sun shines, they can absorb solar heat with their wings, to warm up and fly.


Butterflies are light and frivolous the way they flutter from flower to flower. It's a joyous sight. They simply enjoy life so it seems. Makes me smile always.

To enter spring I've painted a butterfly for you today. It's one from South-America and usually when they rest they will sit upside down in a high tree. I like their graphic pattern a lot. The male can make a cracking noise, although nobody knows what it's used for. That's how they got their name.

Hope we get to enjoy lots of sun this week, 
With Love Lies

*Note to self


If you feel good or if you feel sad, if you feel tired, energetic, doubtful, secure, proud or ashamed. Alone or together, or any other emotion. Just feel it all the way. It's there for a reason.

And then realize...
Amazing things will happen.
expect it, be ready, rejoice over it.

Enjoy your week!

There is a flowershop nearby my house which I really like. Antoesa.  It's run by a friendly lady which in itself is a good reason to go there. But more importantly she sells beautiful flowers a piece. If you handpick your bouquet there it's as if you see the beauty of each type of flower even more. 


We all have our different kind of beauty, and together we create a colourful mix. Sometimes we have to put in a bit more effort to see the good, but it's there in everything in everyone.
I strongly believe that looking for beauty and amplifying or magnifying it makes us more happy and better people. 

Not closing our eyes for 'reality' but focus on the good stuff at the same time. Every moment of every day of every week is about making choices, but this week in the Netherlands it's more than ever about choosing wisely.

Look for the good!

Enjoy your week!

Kingfishers could easily be the most exotic bird we have in the Netherlands. Those bright colors are not so common over here.


Walking near a clear stream of water you might see a flash of quick-flying blue feathers diving for fish.

It is said the kingfisher is the promise of more abundance, new warmth, prosperity and love that is about to enter your life.

So if you have the luck to see one it probably leaves you in aah.


Meeting a kingfisher, even in your dreams also tells you to enjoy life more. And teach your children to enjoy life. In real life the little kingfisher-babies learn to live their own life right after they fly out of the nest. Don't be afraid to try new things. The way a kingfisher dives into the water to catch a fish, you can see yourself diving into something new.

Don't worry, with a kingfisher around you will do just fine...

That's why I painted two today, so two people can enjoy these bird powers :-) Or if you are a huge fan and you are quick you can choose them both, they kind of belong together.





Enjoy your week!
