I don’t know about you, but September was really testing my patience. I had a hard time with the South African postal services trying to send work overseas, which in the end didn’t reach is destination. So better luck next time. But October is here and promises to be a busy month as well as a beautiful one!
I am excited to announce that I started working on a commission last month and it is progressing slowly but surely:
The only request from the patron is that “Size matters!”
That’s when I decided that it will be the title of the work as well. 😉
So dear friends due to this commission, I will not be hosting a studio exhibition this month, but I do have those works that didn’t leave the country, available directly from my studio, until the 10th of October. If you’d like to receive a pdf file, let me know via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
What makes a day special? How many special days are in a year? Someone once said that: “Every day is a gift. But some days are packaged better.” Well there seems to be a special day for just about everything these days, because, hey why not?! I am sure you can find a special day for everyday depending on your interests. How about Read in a bathtub day? or Earth day, also Spring Equinox which is tomorrow (is that the actual first day of Spring?), or Heritage day (which is coming up for South Africa on the 24th.) Apparently, according to some sources it is also Batman day today!
Happy Batman day!
If you are looking for more special days to celebrate, then there is a website called ‘daysoftheyear.com. I saw there that today is also “International day of Peace” and “Escapology day”, and on this day in 2025 it will be “World Gratitude day.” But today I am grateful for something else. Today is the anniversary of our Wedding day:
We are celebrating the decision to spend for the past 18 years a LOT of time together.
Do you have a special day/days? I would like to know. But for now I will leave you with:

As some of you know, the Turbine Art Fair (online) was extended, and will come to an end on Monday.
‘They’ have asked me some questions, and I responded in my mother tongue. Unfortunately they did not add subtitles, and they’ve called it “Conversations with Artists”, but in reality it’s more like a monologue 😉 And wouldn’t it be lovely if there was some sort of soundtrack playing in the beginning? Anyway….
Feel free to ask me some questions of your own.
I wish you a lovely weekend.
