My first painting (the little raven) is on display at an art-exhibition until Jan. 3th in the Schouwburg in Nijmegen, so if you're in the neighbourhood, you can take a look, admission is free. There are around 180 sculptures and paintings to see from amateur artists.
The picture is not that good I am sorry....

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!

DH and I are home alone enjoying a quiet day.
On Christmas Eve our son with girlfriend and
my mother and MIL came for dinner.

Here in Holland we are having a white Christmas which is very, very unusual....Here you can see some pictures I made this week, views from our window and around our home.

Today I received this lovely fabric page for my French themed fabricbook from Barbara in Germany. What a great idea Barbara to make the French (and Dutch!)coloured flag like this. Must say that
I envy you for your sewing machine that makes that wonderful stitches. Thanks so much Barbara!

I am a really bad blogger these days, but the flu was back for the third time last week. Had the second shot against H1N1 yesterday, so I hope it is over now.

Due to my illness my teacher was so sweet to put the finishing touch on my first oilpainting so it could be displayed on a big Art exhibition "Kunst in de markt" in the Eusebiuschurch in Arnhem last weekend. It is an impression of the slow march of the British Massed Pipes and Drums Band on "the Bridge too far" in Arnhem during the 65th Airborne commemoration last September.

Also I'd like to show you a picture of a fabric Christmascard I made for a swap, it is on it's way to Doreen in Australia.
