to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

empty head, sore knees and new floor

Being focused for months on the art tour - exhibition, and neglecting my house and husband, people had warned me about the period after the event; ... the pressure gone ... the emptiness ... What were they talking about ?

The head was finally empty, what a nice feeling. The hands had washing and ironing and cleaning and washing and ironing and cleaning to do the first week.

And the second week I decided it was time to clean up the studio. What do I see that is definitely in my way? ... the whole set of pebble tiles we bought 11 months ago to put in our downstairs bathroom. Empty head, nothing important to do in the coming days, no visitors in the coming week ... it is time to do this.... with a delay of a year.
A gift to my ever so patient husband.



sealing the concrete floor before ...


... glueing the water tight fleece before ...


... trying to work out the best way to put the pebbles tiles before ...


... glueing the pebble tiles before ...

... well ... still glueing the pebbles before ...


... grouting the pebbles before ...


... well ....


The look this morning, the floor is drying. In a few days I will be able to put a sealant on top to prevent dirt getting in the floor. Almost finished, still can't believe it.


and the sore knees and wrist and back and legs are not so bad after all, this is finally done !!!

The studio ? ... still messy.
