'melancholy or roeien met de riemen die je hebt' = making do with what you have (literally this Dutch expression is: rowing with the oars at your disposal)

wat lief van je Els, heerlijk zo'n commentaar; het is heel spannend om zo met al het werk naar buiten te treden, dank je wel!

hi Dee: it's three bits of canvas I cut out from a larger painting(I no longer liked, duh) and placed together to make a new piece, by nailing them onto an old bit of wood (pine-floorboard)and have then 'continued' the painting on the wood!
