doodling continued

the quiet before the storm

Roger van Boxtel (unfortunately you can't see him as Ro, book shop owner is standing right in front of him whilst introducing him to the crowd) presented his book yesterday 'van Trilling tot Rilling', it consists of a series of interviews with musical folks. From what I gathered, the book deals mainly with the contention that music has healing properties and the interviewees illustrate this claim by examples from their personal and professional experience. I hasten to add that the author makes no claims to having written a scientific nor comprehensive study, the book is the condensed result of his life-long personal interest in music. The presentation was followed by an animated discussion and live music!
from the bustle of the town to the calm in the studio a day later: a sleeping model lying close to the warmth of the wood burner, we lost an hour today and hoped for longer light, alas it rained All Day and the skies remained boringly grey




however we did not despair and the water colours continue to materialize, March hares abound today






Django and Tungsten side by side on my studio wall, our youngest son suggested: yin&yang, ha!

Woohooo...Yes Yin/Yang that will be the prize winner. The two of them mimicking the symbol in a perfect, unbroken circle. Do do that, and wouldn't it make lovely cards.

Your yin-yang dogs do look to be
draped around a circle, an earth, in motion while sleeping.

Suggests change, seasons. I do love
these paintings!
