I recently had a birthday and my husband threw me a fantastic and surprisingly organized party. I had so much fun that I lost my voice for two days. I was given some beautiful tulips that were so inspiring that I had to paint them. They lasted for quite a long time and they brought tonnes of joy into my chaotic life.
Life has been taking me on one crazy ride that I never expected. It seems that whenever anything happens it happens all at once. Though it is chaotic and very hectic, there is nothing but positive things coming out of the noisy mess, which is my life. It reminds me of when my mother would do a really deep cleaning of the house in spring time. While she worked on organizing and getting to the root of all dirt and scum the house would become a worse disaster than when she started. There was always loud music, lots of banging and thumping of moving furniture and fixing those things that have been driving her crazy all year. When the job was done the house was sparkling, walls were freshly painted, and there was never a sign of all the chaos that it took to get to that renewed fresh point.
In this chaos is a new series of paintings that I am working on. I can't wait to post the first painting. I am going to work on it right after this post.
So, I better get to it!
