Todays miniature shows you the north-sea-regatta we witnessed in Scheveningen. At first we just thought "wow" so many people sailing today haha.

And to be honoust I've had no idea what so ever about who won or what the main goal of this competition is. But it sure looked impressive.

Life, of course, is never a race, but sometimes it's fun to enter a contest.
You might remember one of my larger paintings is selected for zomerexpo and is on display and for sale at a Dutch Museum de Fundatie. 
(To be precise my work is in the garden room (Tuinzaal) at the Castle Nijenhuis in Heino if you would like to visit)

But there is also a contest for the public's favorite and I would love to win that of course:-)

Please vote for me if you like. With this link you can vote and see the big painting at the same time. Thank you so much!

Have a 'fortunate' week

Waterlily's like the lotus have their roots firmly entrenched in the mud and their beautiful flowers lightly floating on the water surface.

They close their pretty heads every evening as the light fades and open up fresh and frivolous at dawn. That's why they can be seen as a symbol of rebirth and second chances.

I like this symbolic meaning and I believe in second, third or even fourth chances. And  I will keep on stating it's important to never give up on your dream.

Several years ago I visited museum de Fundatie /kasteel het Nijenhuis. I fell in love with the natural surrounding and the way the art was shown in this castle. I secretly wished to hang there with my art, but I did not even paint at that time. This Wednesday this dream will come true! 

My painting 'What Lies Beneath' (100x100cm) is being exhibited from the 24th of may till the 20th of august in museum de fundatie/kasteel Nijenhuis. 
It feels kind of festive, just as it feels festive that today I painted no. 1100 of the miniature project. One little step at the time and believing it's possible will get you almost anywhere you want.

What is your dream?

Have a week full of dreams and believing

You probably know walking is good for you. It strengthens your heart, lowers disease risk, gives you energy, helps you lose weight and best of all walking makes you happy. It's the best medicine for a mild case of depression.

If you walk outside every day for about 30 minutes you also boost your vitamin D and that's something your bones and immune system will love.

Strolling down the beach and feeling the sand between your toes is my absolute favorite. It's like a free foot massage. That together with smelling the sea and all of the above advantages makes me wonder why I don't go there every day:-)

Have a healthy week

With Love Lies
