Thank you !

I have been so touched by the many heartfelt reactions to my previous blogpost, that I want to thank all of you for "getting" me. Bringing messages of compassion and understanding, making people think and feel, making people aware, is not only what I want to do with my art, I need to do it. And it hurts when this gets censored. So thank you! I appreciate each and everyone's reaction and opinion.

While I had planned this week to start a new painting, it didn't work out. The kids have school holidays this week and it just was too busy. But I do have a few more faces to share :-)

Here's another mapface (well, two actually ...):


I really enjoy creating these mapfaces. I might even make a little book full of them when I have some more.

Here's a watercolour:


And another journalspread in my roadmap-book:


That's it for this week! Apart from the funnies of course :-) Here they are:








And of course the ones to think about:






That's quite depressing actually.... I sure hope earth doesn't look like that in 2035.... :-(

I will link this to Paint Party Friday, where I'm happy to be part of a great compassionate group of artists with big hearts and wonderful art. Hop on over there to have a look!

Thanks for being here, I so appreciate you coming around and leaving comments. Have a beautiful day, and enjoy your weekend! I'll be back next week ♥ ♥ ♥

  1. Love this post and of course your art. Your funnies always get to me, however the one about dt library.... his ex wife evana has something to say about that. This is just one link about it. Even dt admits to it.

  7. Wonderful post, and I love your faces and journaling. The world is changing fast, and we all need to learn to care about all people, whoever they are, wherever they come from and whatever they believe in. I'll make just one exemption to that - Donald Trump. Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

  9. I love your MAP FACES and their messages! I want to share them with the world and spread their message!!!! My daughter teaches at the college level and has been warned that her lessons have become too political and she is making some of her student uncomfortable. SHE IS LIVID!!! It's a hard world we are living in :(

  13. I think those map faces are some of your best and most heartfelt work! They would make an amazing book with so much heart. If any of your art changes one mind the world is better for it!! Although I think it could make the masses think! Love your bravery to live your truth!! Always a fan!
