Sometimes life throws you a challenge – and you are left with just one thing – to learn to deal with it. There is no escaping – no easy way out.
In the last year I have lost my dear father and one of my very best friends to cancer within a very short time of each other, – and it left me numb. It has taken me most of a year to work through this, to find out how to keep all ‘this’ in my life, and to move forward and keep living. This is the reason for the silence here on the blog, not having the creative energy to write nor paint.
But life goes on, – and mine with the memory of two lovely people, I was privileged to have in my life.
They were both ‘art people’ – and when I finally picked up the paintbrush again, I took inspiration from them. One loved watercolours, the other the colour black, and below you can see a few examples of my sketches inspired by them.
I will never forget them……………. Mi
