Left Over

Enhanced detail of a picture of a red watercolor paint residu left on a paper plate – wilson tichelaar

Showing the actual picture where this is taken from would kill the magic.

Designer Piece | Things Could Always Be Worse Mug

Things could always be worse mug – designer piece. Found on Collosal

 

Somehow I took this screenshot, an announcement that caught my eye:

Things Could Be Worse. 

Written on a cup, a vessel, big enough for all possible misery.

On Kickstarter.

Again I stick to my fortune cookie wisdom.

Discovery Vehicles

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

If you were to go on a discovery nowadays, how would you travel, where would you go? A question I asked a group of 10 year olds in the local multicultural primary school, where I was teaching, training to become an art teacher.

I spoke about the discoveries of the Golden Age and how people traveled in boats.

Where would you go if you wanted to explore? And how would you get there?

This is a selection of their Discovery Vehicles.

 

PS: A good class for children of any age 😉

I am working late, pitching for a magazine.

This is an image I made, just now, branding the use of fabric made of recycled PET plastic, looking good.

Let’s Love Our Home.

Wonderful Snippet

Wonderful snippet | A header for a flash sales of art, in the newsletter from Artsy, the online platform with everything art on it.

This piece of image caught my eye when scrolling through Artsy’s newsletter. The announcement of a live auction coming up soon.

I thought I recognized… or at least saw something inspired by… or?…

I had to click.

Adversity Is The Prosperity Of The Great | Fortune Cookie Wisdom

MOTTO

MOTTO

 

The text above is from a fortune cookie, it’s wisdom to me. I framed it on the back of a canvas.

I wrote a post on life’s adversity here

It’s funny reading it back, I could write this now, the last bit, about possibilities.

And it’s funny, today I heard a newspaper writer on the radio cheerfully declare, when questioned about a text she had published, that she (still) totally agreed with what she had written then.

February 2020 | A Big Black Cat Sitting On A Roof

Next month’s black cat is sitting on a roof, a bit forlorn. A black cat on a roof, what does it say? What’s coming in February?

Next month’s black cat is sitting on a roof, a bit forlorn. A black cat on a roof, what does it say? What’s coming in February?

(From SpiritualUnite)

Black cats – Good or bad luck?

Spiritual Meaning of Seeing a Black Cat

The spiritual meaning of seeing a black cat varies from culture to culture. Cats have been living with humans for centuries. It’s not known why black cats have a link with magic and witches.

History suggests cats were special crew members on ships because they bring good luck and companionship for the lonely crew.

Many ships reached their destination with a black cat on board.

 

———————–

It made me think – on top of the unexpected news I received today and has been chewing my brain since:

Both my dad and grandad lived a large part of their lives at sea. “Many ships reached their destination with a black cat on board” reminds me of them and they are telling me that there is a possibility of luck. Luck is in the room. Chin up, and give it your best shot. – As if they read my thoughts.
