fir coat

It was an amazing sight,
almost a week ago,
I had so many photos that I forgot to post them right then.
it was as if all the branches had put on an amazing beautiful fir-coat.
I've never seen that before!

big splash

Birdbath had been frozen for a couple of days.

but as the temperature is now 'unfreezing'
I plugged on the waterstream to let the water run again.

Immediately blackbird took his chance to splash all over

robin from Israel

My friend F. sent me an Israeli-robin,
I didn't know that robins fly & live in Israel too...!
so........ warm X-mas greetings from this Zion-robin.

Its so funny to see him in total different surroundings!

new card

Today, surprise surprise......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I received from my publisher in Germany,
the card from my bathing robin.

Its always a surprise, because I don't know what kind of text they added to the card,
and how it will look like in print... what color enveloppe....etcetera etc.
and of course its in German
Is says free translated: being cheerful, doing good, and letting the birds sing.

The cards will be sold in the shops in spring 2008.

soon to be released!!!



coat of many colors

I will bless you like the stars

he laughs at fear, and is afraid of nothing


soaring above the storms


soon to be released!

One of my dreams, for a long... long time is:
to have cards published from my paintings (see
This summer I decided to jump into the deep waters,
not knowing where this journey will lead me.

I only knew I wanted to do it, and just start with the beginnings
So I made preparations to find out all the hows, where's do's and don'ts.
I faced many mountains of obstacles.
For me I am not such an organised person,
actualy to be honest, I hate planning and organising things.

But now the cards are ready to be printed
and I expect them to be printed end of this month.

If you are interested for buying : please sent email.
the cards are going to be wrapped in beautiful enveloppes,
matching perfectly with the card .

big horn

I planned to drive around, and try to shoot a buzzard, with my camera.
while driving around I found out all buzzards were not at home.
nowhere to be seen nor heard.
no buzzard sitting on their post.

all in hiding
only driving along with no camera, they are on their watchposts...

drove along a meadow with some sheep
instead of coming home 'empty-carded'
I took a shot of this big horn
click-click for nice view

dreaming & doing

Between dream and deed is only the little word 'and'

While talking about our dreams, with my friend the Bee,
(where we regulary meet to update)
she found this card, which exactly illustrated our day.!

snailmail stamp

As you know

I love snailmail...
since email...snailmail really gets rare

Today I received from my friend A.
her own card with her own snailmailstamp
as I mentioned in 'some-X-blogs' ago, we in Holland can do that.
I don't know about other countries if this is possible
But we are lucky since some-time to make your own

There are so many 'not-so-beautiful-stamps'... it is great to have your own.
before, I always went to the postoffice and bought ones I liked.
Nobody or few think that is important.
but I do.

favorite bird again
