Saturday is at least in part a day off. I woke up today and did
two fast sketches as I drank my coffee. Then it was off to the
market to see our wonderful farmer friend Jens, and his sweet
assistants -- Stephanie and Simon -- a young, very happy
I saw that I posted this portrait last year at this time because
I was working on a portrait, and the lighting in this self
portrait appealed to me. At the moment I'm working on a
landscape with complicated clouds -- and it is all about light too.
So why not? Light is vital in every painting -- and I hope

as this. Meanwhile I'll try to stay positive and luminous
today and for the entire weekend.
Thank you for your inspiration.
Have a loving your life day.
