Last week I started with an online year-long course.
 For me it’s not really about learning new stuff.
I think I know most of the techniques the teachers teach in their workshops.
It just feels good to be inspired by others, however.
It can offer those million sparks that keep you going.
I needed that, after the tumultuous first quarter of the year.
I needed a little oil for my artistic machine and to sometimes just sit and play for fun’s sake…
The very first workshop was to create a Fairy Art Mother…
My F.A.M. turned out so sweet…
I created the mandala above with this first page.   
And I promise…
it certainly won’t be the last!
If you feel like getting inspired as well,
You can always still enroll for Life Book.
And then the sun!!! 
Ahhh…today she finally came!
We spent one hell of a lovely day at the beach!
 
Beach houses were unwrapped, unpacked, put together and moved into all at the same time…
Cormorants were enjoying the sun as well…
On the sea lay a fine layer of fog…
Here’s where we were…looking out on Flushing Boulevard…with a nice beach restaurant on the left.
 
We got so much sun that I collected a gazillion freckles in one day!!! Yay!!!
Totally relaxed and ready for a new week…
Packed with fresh inspiration!
