Day 8 & 9 originality

Monday and Tuesday were quiet days, with a farmers market in Castelnaudery without my camera, but more important than the photos is the quote I found by Robert Henri :

“originality: Don’t worry about your originality. You could not get rid of it even if you wanted to. It will stick to you and show you up for better or worse in spite of all you or anyone else can do.” 

Like it or not, you better  make friend with the way you do your art…


day 5 – painting marathon

Painting is getting lost
in time ,
not thinking anything
other than
colors, brush and strokes.
A meditation practice
without being afraid
my legs could fall asleep

– heike-

this morning I realized that it is Friday, almost a week past here in Southern France, and am afraid not having painted enough, even though I did everyday. So I allowed myself to have at least a great breakfast with the already mentioned  great french croissant and again a coffee o’le.

Than I went upstairs to getting lost in my paintings again… 10h later I am happy and tired feeling as if I have accomplished a marathon.



yes, even when you think you can’t


cloudeYES – I am scared
YES – I don’t know what’s next
YES – I am concerned about things not working out
YES – I feel as I am not good enough
I know I have to continue my path knowing that some day I will see land again
