Testing medium

Got the chance to borrow the big box Derwent Fine Art Pencils to try out this kind of medium. The pencils are on oil base and after painting you use turpentine to smooth out the paint.


For small work, it’s fine with great, colorful result, for a big painting it’s not optimal in my opinion.

See the results:





I have to admit that for the painting with the man, I used Adobe to smooth the color a bit better than it was possible with the turpentine.







It’s Autumn and all animals prepare for the winter. They eat more and stockpile food they can find. Mother Nature provides in abundance where she still can: beech nuts, hazel nuts, chest nuts, berries, mushrooms…..

We humans, unfortunately, tile the garden and use the leaf blower in order to have an as clean as possible garden. Municipality’s more and more often do not plant hazel, beeches, oaks and chestnut trees because they get so big and build roots that demolish the beloved asphalt.

In all our urbanization drift we forget, that there are other inhabitants on earth who need the food, the leafs….and that we humans need Nature to keep us healthy. The best way to help our fellow residents is to actually have a garden without tiles and somewhere in that garden a plain mess.


Animals and plants need the leafs as warm cover. In a mess like the above, they can find hiding places for the winter and room for their food stock. So put your blower away and actually let the garden come to rest til spring. Most leaves will be gone by than and make a fine compost for new growth.

The info given is only in dutch. Personally, I found the info very interesting and useful.

Chicken Ears

If you think you had it all than someone post something on Twitter.

It’s time for a funny story. @Parafernadia posted advertisement from Netherlands best known grocer Albert Heijn.


Ears? On a chicken? And their color determine the color of the eggs? White ears – white eggs – brown ears – brown eggs?

Must be nonsense! Besides, I never saw ears on a chicken’s head. Have you? So I went searching for info.

Chickens have ears but not like our ears. Their ears are inside, covered with a bunch of little feathers. That’s why I did not see ears. The only thing on the outside of the head concerning ears is the ear lobe.


So far so good. They have ears and they can hear extremely well with it.

We mad humans bred chickens with ear lobes of our liking, form and color,  the pure natural chicken is too common.


Now what’s about the egg color? Is the advertisement true? After all, to sell products, people tell us lies all the time.


Went on searching and finally found an extensive article about chickens.

Here we go!Chicken_looking_around

We have chicken with white, red, yellow, blue and even purple ears. So maybe the white and brown eggs are for us, produced by white and red ear lobes. The chickens with all the colors produce the eggs for the Easter Bunny.


Nothing of all this is true. The color of the ear lobe doesn’t determine the color of the eggs – that is one hell of a wide-spread believe. The wise marketing manager or agency fell for it and Albert Heijn bought it too.

Maybe a lot of customers are believers of AH and they tell it their kids and the

Legend of the Egg color

will be alive for more centuries to come.


If you dare Pt.2

The painting is home from the exhibition. Heard, that other people experienced the garden also.

When I asked Piet, who works in the church, for a bag to take the painting home, he looked at the painting for maybe 2 sec to measure it up and then said:” So you’re carrying home the deep dark animal forest!”

The energy of the painting is strong obviously and people experience the part that is appealing to their  energy field. That is what happens all the time when people see a painting I made.

Just found the article from Manuela v/d Knaap about the working of the 3rd supermoon we have now – in full length and in dutch to be found here:


This article is very accurate and it’s truth is to be seen in everyday life, at least I see it that way. Even in my personal life I deal with the energy described. Let’s see:

It is again a very special full (third) super moon conjunct Chiron the cosmic wound and mastery. In an accelerating pace, our cosmic karma is felt to master it. If you are willing to go with yourself, it will move you into a super soft loving energy.

Felt the change coming from the start of September and I am wearing now the Charoit gem stone I wrote about



violently felt a profound struggle for authority. And struggle with time. On the world stage there is fighting (behind the scenes) to the new leadership (Uranus in Aries square Pluto in reception with Saturn and Mars). That “the common man” is played and manipulated by directors is painfully obvious.

What came to mind immediately was, the name Putin, the separatists who managed to block a proper investigation of flight MH17, the wischiwaschi and bullshit of the Politicians about what to do in that case and NATO meeting concerning IS. Near by all politicians are playing and manipulate their voters and we all suffer from their actions recently. No one is straight in word and deed. In my personal life, I experienced it last week as you know in my never-ending story with taxes…..

….In your own life will be asked to actively and vigorously  stay at the helm and your life into your own hands … restraining straps call for innovation, to be accepted,let go and then to choose a new life direction. ….

That is a bit like the message of my dreams last night under the Full Moon.

Now  also the black Moon went into (average) Virgo went into in a conjunction with Venus. (true black Moon is still in Leo) ….. The cosmic octave of Virgo demands purity in all areas, food, communication, relationships, governance. Also organizing and communication between individual facets in us and in our lives come under scrutiny and service versus victimization.

Now Venus is also in the average Black Moon in Virgo, and there is much to do around purification and discernment and insights into the cosmic pure feminine.

I wrote about my average and true black moon here: http://redskywalkeronearth.wordpress.com/2014/02/20/black-moon-conclusion/

As you can read I have my average black moon also in Virgo. So now finally  I may remember my knowledge of herbs and more which is located in the average black moon in Virgo in my case. So that’s why I intuitively painted the monastery garden…

So if you read an article like the article written by Manuela v/d Knaap – don’t just read it but work with it, feel if it is already working in you, if you already heard that bell ringing or if you feel resistance around this theme.
