To Mary Ann Moss and John Arbuckle

this project, The Barn Project, is over and done. Thanks to Mary Ann and John I have accomplished
this. The inside of the book will follow. Mary Ann took my hand and took me to the land of paper and making books that I have looked all over to find. Finally I found my place,thanks her.
John helped me to fill this book with art that has been travellling across the ocean again and again.
We have inspired each other and I have had a blast. I have got a new art friend through this project and we will work together again some day........
The actual book is found by my Danish friend Tina and I was a wreck!
It was hard work to transform that old photoalbum into this beauty but Mary Ann showed me what glue and beautiful paper can do.

I found these plates in Amsterdam in the Stedelijk Museum, an exhibition by
the dutch designer Marcel Wanders. There were hundreds of objects to look at
but most of all I liked these plates. Holland has a tradition of blue china and he
is playing with this

love these traditional figures that he has made blue and white,  his way

these tatoos, china-style were also a favorite of mine

bike in oak

bikes all over in Amsterdam. I have never seen so many bikes
in a city before. The streets were divided between cars and bikes in
equal parts, and pedestrians were left with very little space.
I was closed to have a collision every day, not being used to have bikes all over.
Nice though.

this is a huge bike parking house outside the 
Central Station

more Amsterdam

Found a super-duper paper shop, I was happy

Love locks

lots of old clothes stacked together to make an armchair

Rembrandt on a kiosk in Rembrandt square

not too many of these on my path

I discovered this shop on the last day on my trip, a Sunday and yes,
it was closed. It was situated opposite the hotel I stayed in. Too close really.

Cheese, tulips and china.
A few of the dominating impressions from my first visit to this town.
Spring is a little late this year but the tulips were out.

It happens once a year and is a true event to wait for.

so is the chair

and this little fox is covered as well.
as an embroiderer it caught my eye.
