I am functioning on very little sleep at the moment; it takes me forever to get to sleep and then I wake again before 5am. Since I usually tend to sleep too much, it certainly makes for a change I need to get used to. The first morning I swam 1.6km on two hours' sleep and felt incredibly light and energetic, but by day 2 I could hardly walk up the stairs in the library.

Today I had to stand on a step ladder to hang my work (not high at all, of course, but I always feel a bit queasy on ladders at the best of times, and fiddling with the backs of paintings, cords and hooks makes you lose your balance more easily) and was exhausted afterwards. These paintings are part of a group exhibition in this festival. I will add photos of the individual paintings to my website soon, and maybe post them here as well.

It may look like a random selection, but they are sort of linked and might even tell a story. They are part of my female archetypes series, which seems to remain the main theme in my paintings for now.


  1. Oh wow, your paintings are beautiful! I particularly like the one in the middle (from what I can see here)

  2. I snuck my response to the Delacroix statement. It's where you posted the quote.

    I wish you a great day. Sleeplessness is something I'm dealing with, too. Ugh.

    Your work is powerful. Your talent and personality radiates through it, I might add.

    1. Thank you! And thanks for your thoughtful comments - I will reply.

    2. You are so amazing, Marina. I have so much to learn from you!
