This old chest seems to have traveled to Singapore with Air France. It has had it’s turns on it’s voyage.

Now it has a new delicate top hand painted with handmade Japanese paper and acrylic.

It was a journey to paint the winter landscape on it, but I did enjoy the adventure. Being an artist is about being able to look out of the box. In this case I am almost in the box, yet doing something new to me. Trying out new things is essential for me and for creativity to bloom.

I hope that the guests will enjoy it on Saturdays event in the garden which will feature music, art and carpets.
