05/01/2015: My resolutions for 2015

 

 

It's that time of the year again, time to reflect on the year that has passed and looking forward to what the next year will bring. 

2014 was a weird year, I had setbacks such as getting fired, major dusty home-renovations, but nevertheless I was able to get to a certain artistic level and I have written and read a lot more. I was able to clean up my website and get it into a certain structure, I have reached the 500-followers-milestone on Twitter and finally made a page for my art on Facebook. A lot of progress on a lot of levels. So I'm really content about what I've achieved in 2014.

So what will bring 2015? I hope a lot of the same, but always better and more. I have just been notified I'm listed in the collection of The Real World: New Figurative Art by Catherine Henning from SaatchiArt. I will be represented at the Affordable Art Fair in Brussels in February by ekspose.me, something I'm really looking forward to. There might also be an event in december, for which I don't have details yet.

I don't know yet how some of the things I have started in 2014 will turn out. I'm very curious about how my pull-off dresses will evolve in 2015, or it might turn out into someting new and better?

The painted sketches on top of this page are preparations for a big (100 by 120 centimeter) painting that has been left unfinished for many years. I liked the black and white, but after the many hours I have spent in my studio during the last months, I was ready now to add some colour. 2015 will be the year of of picking up things and leaving nothing unfinished.

Bring it on! ;)
