Slow, but still moving forward

Back in Santa Fe, checking the progress and being involved in the process. Now more visible things will happen – yesterday the big window was mounted and the plaster team is prepping the walls. The outside is 99% done, soon there will be changes!

Kerry James Marshall, incredible painter

On our way to Santa Fe we stopped for a few days in Chicago. Very cool city! While there we went to The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and saw an incredibly good retrospective show with Kerry James Marshall. I had never heard of him, but now he is certainly one of my heroes! Fantastic paintings with a lot of depth and meaning. Very, very inspiring to both Andrea and me.

Searching for the perfect brush stroke

The other night, as I was brushing my teeth, I realized why I paint! I am searching for the perfect brush stroke! It is mine… nobody else’s. And no-one can say that it is wrong. If I find it, I want to try to get it again. Now I have only one part of the “family suite” left – my dad as a little boy. I have to say one thing: it may look easy, but it ain’t.
