Happy 2014

It has been a long time since I posted here. In hindsight, my originally stated intention to post every week, looks wildly over-optimistic now. But I guess I’m not the first blogger who made this mistake.  The struggle to survive gets in the way of our good intentions. Anyway, happy new year, dear visitor of this blog. Let’s hope it will be an inspiring year for you and me. The fact that I haven’t posted since March doesn’t mean that I have been inactive. Among other things, I participated in three group shows at our local gallery, Deep Thanks. Below are some of my contributions, photographed by Kristopher Johnson.
