Art Therapy Here I Come

May 9th, 2014

It seems that doctors die, statistically, at around 57-60 years old, a lot sooner than the “coach patatoes” (statistically), so why trust them entirely and blindly when it comes to our lives? (the statistics are for the US of A) Well, most of us... 

Still Kicking...

March 26th, 2014

...and not yet the bucket... I was lucky. I've found at an art supply store a Windsor and Newton easel, a solid one, a real easel for serious artists (one can paint a 2 x 3 m canvases, if so enclined...) at half price. Somehow, I managed to borrow... 

There is a Time for Everything

November 16th, 2013

...Ecclesiastes dixit. A time for living and a time for dying. A time for health and a time for sickness. For me, it seems, it's the time for sickness. I've got diagnosed with a rare (they say only about 6000 Americans got it in a year which is 0,... 

Between painting and the big C

November 12th, 2013

Around the same date when Robert Genn got his "you got pancreatic cancer" news I also got mine. Don't know if it's pancreatic (hope not!) or what but I know it's cancer. So, I do apologize to the few who still visit my galleries and make comments...

April 22nd, 2012

Of course, some would doubt that he was that lucky (I have doubts myself…) and, of course, he was the legitimate son of Theodorus Van Gogh, the pastor from Nuenen, and not a bastard. But that’s the expression, it seems, when one wants to express,... 

It's kind of funny. A few posts away I was writing about PERCEPTIONS. And how everything is a question of perception... Well, my perceptions about Vincent changed. Of course, they changed for a long time and will still change but now I'm talkin... 

A wonderful anniversary gift (just had my 56th one) I see that I have today more than 10000 per total visitors and my photo Where Dracula Was Born had more than 1000 visits! Wow!  

Van Gogh and I

MAKING A LIVING AS AN ARTIST Some do it and some don’t. There are some very good, excellent, artists who make a living with their art. And there are also some very good, excellent artists who don’t. There are out there some mediocre and even worst... 

Danu s World

December 20th, 2011

I was browsing through some of my old photographs, some older than 30 years... 1980...1987... Oh, boy! All those memories came over me like a tornado... Not a lot left, except these scanned images... Eyes to Die For (see photo in my portfolio) ...
