sleeping late, and sleeping some more
tired, more tired, dreaming, a bit galling
doing some laundry, drying, folding it away
and one more siesta in the end
feeling guilty, vague: ‘what a pity, this beautiful day...’
at last I go out
cycling, the wind on my skin, almost too cold
in a bookshop picking up one book after another, bored
and than the ‘damn’-feeling:
I was supposed to write myself, I want to write now
shit, no paper, no pen
I’m in a bar: ‘do I have anything to tell at all, to write?’
‘why do I want to do this in the first place?’
killing the idea even before it is born!
so I write, I write, I write...
Tomorrow, september 1th, some of my art will be sold by auction in Teddy Kids International Kindergarten in Leiden. A part (30 percent) of the profit will go to the Willem Alexander Children Fund.
Along with my art, there will be art of Eugenio Eijck (my brother) and other artists, including the children from Teddy Kids.
The auction will start at 17.00.
You're welcome to preview the art from 16.30.
And here is another animal. It looks like a camel, but it is born out of fantasy,lines and color.
Besides, the background is the table in my studio. It forms an eternal inspiration with all its spots of paint, ink and glue, each one unique and able to get me to make all kind of new creatures.
