Weekly update 6/52 Some week day routines and illustration process without a plan

Another January week has passed. Here in Düsseldorf the weather has been pretty mild and frost free most nights. We have got into everyday routines again after the break. Mila and I bike to school everyday. It is still pretty dark when we leave at 07.45 but on my way back it is already getting light, if it is not grey and cloudy which it is most days in all honesty. When I get back from biking with Mila I either wake Filip up or he is already up watching TV. I drink my coffee and serve him his breakfast and get him dressed. We get in the boxbike for Kita at 8.53 and it is just across the park so we make it on time for morning circle at 9.00. I exercise at boot-camp two times per week in the morning directly after dropping Filip off. It is outside training and we have a great trainer with so many good exercises and it is a nice group of international ladies. I pick up early and drive Filip to his speech therapy centrum 3 times per week. The centrum is located closer to city so while Fil

Weekly update 5/52 First week of a new year

 First week of January and the first steps in a new year. No big changes. Covid-19 has developed from Delta to Omicron to dominate and infect record many people in Europe. German has new restrictions coming along called 2G+ which means that no longer can the Covid-pass ( Vaccinated 2 times) open doors for you now you either have to add the third booster vaccin or show Covid-pass + test. This is for restaurants, bars, indoor fitness, pools and cinema etc. I don't know what to say I have no energy to think too much about new restrictions again more then I am not complaining as long as schools are open. In the schools the kids wear mask and are tested twice per week.  This illustration ( watercolor and black inc fine line) I finished this week well the inspiration is pretty clear right  I have not yet got around to do an illustrated summary of my 2021- but maybe it will come. Also the inspiration of doing a wish list for 2022 is low. But I did decide to have a white January (alcohol f

Weekly update 4/52 Looking back at a creative 2021

 Happy new year and welcome 2022 ! I am hoping this will be another good year. I am aware that being in the middle of a pandemic might not be classified as an amazing year, but on a personal level I think 2021 was a nice year. The scare for the virus was higher during 2020 when everything was new and restrictions felt more dramatic. 2021 we were already use to having this virus present although invisible and how to handle restrictions testing and masks.  For my creativity and productivity 2021 has been great. With part of the year being home-schooling I had less time to think what to draw or what to make and why. I just had to create what-ever came to my mind to have some time for me and a feeling that I am "doing" something. I constantly had my watercolors and drawing pad on the kitchen table - only cleaned it way a bit when we were eating. I have tested new techniques, spend a lot of time on the same drawing and from that I feel I have developed so much this year.  Here is
