"Summertime
And the living is easy


.....


....

One of these mornin's
You're gonna rise up singin'
Then you'll spread your wings
And take to the sky

..."

ALIVE WITHOUT BREATH ... 

“Alive without breath, 
As cold as death; 
Never thirsty, ever drinking, 
All in mail never clinking.”

This year I've plant seedpods of Naturtium and I was so pleased that their comes a lot of green leaf immediately. But then nothing happened for a long time. Well, I thought, they were old seeds, they will not bloom any more. But what a surprise, since two weeks my basket becomes more and more blossoms in a lovely orange, yellow and red orange colors. I'm thrilled and must catch their beauty on paper.

 This year in June I've lost my very dear Soul Sister Elle van der Wagt. She was a very sweet soul, immensely talented photographer, humorous and big-hearted dear friend and much more to me. I miss her very much and so I've decided to paint her portrait. First I've done an akurat sketch to step into the mood and now I've done a very loose study of her beautiful eyes.
