I am Stripey
the cat of cats
hunter by night
for I see best without the light
sleeper by day
on sunny pillows if I may
my purring sounds quite loud
I am Nina’s friend without a doubt

Cleopatra crushed beetles
to make red lipstick
because even in 30BC
she knew speaking 12 languages
would be even more impressive
when the words jumped
through a ring of fire

circus mouth
ruby woo. I smile and split
the red  Sea

At certain times in your life, everything seems to fall in place. Everything? well a lot. :-)

All previous events seemed like a prelude to this moment. Moments of which you thought how did I end up in this, turned out to be precisely right. If only to realize what you actually find important in this life. And moments that were already beautiful find a new form. This could also apply to your love life.

What a delight. Congratulations together!

Ever since I can remember I like a series more than one.

Not because I am so greedy haha but simply because in a series you suddenly look at each item separately to find, for example, the differences or similarities. You suddenly see more and you are looking forward to more treasures that you can find that make the series bigger.

For me, a series already starts with 3, but even better with 5. And as soon as a new one arrives in the series, all existing ones change with it. Do you now see that a series is really fun?

This miniature is for my neighbor Rob who has his birthday today and has a whole collection of the dome church on the Singel in Amsterdam.
Congratulations Rob!

Today I've painted a miniature portret of a family member. A family that is very close to each other and of which I've painted several portret's during the years. In this case the family is really related to each other.

But...'family' isn't always 'blood'. I guess it's more the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones who accept you for who you are and vice versa. The ones who would do anything to see you happy and who love you no matter what.

If this is the case with your relatives you can feel a happy person, but don't worry if it's not. Luckily you have the freedom to form your own 'family'. And even (or should I say certainly) animals can be a part of your tribe...
