We've been busy this last week redesigning the exhibition in our gallery. The beach and sea paintings fit really well with the wood panelling.
My new business cards arrived as well....they're so cute....
I've recently added a few new etchings to my Etsy store: this larger etching above of a group of ladies wearing the traditional outfit for one of the islands in our area. I used dry point, aquatint and vernis mou on this etching. These are all techniques that give the piece the different textures.
And these 3 feather etchings were new additions to my store this week.
And lastly, on Saturdays, for the etching workshop and open studio, I make a cake. This week's was this scrummy peanut butter and cinnamon swirl....wow it was delicious! Not a crumb over......

Beautiful Breda, here in the Netherlands, last week. Met some new Etsy people and their 'real' shops in the Sint Annastraat....a very cool street....the highlight was cafe couture vintage seller of handmade clothing and accessories, who's desk was an ironing board and footrest a mini sleeve ironing board.

Yesterday I came across a fantastic shop in Bergen op Zoom here in the Netherlands. It sold all kinds of innovative objects and fair trade products. One of the pieces was this amazing stool made completely from cardboard and assembled in a matter of minutes. It can support up to 200kg and is really sturdy, but light to lift. I love it! Slippers weren't included...
