At the moment I'm busy writing the program for the workshop in Marrakech next week.
The pencil sharpener we bought in the museum shop last Monday. I have a weakness for cute desk accessories, so I couldn't resist Geppetto's pencil sharper.
Add the extra to the ordinary.
I'm not a Pinocchio collector by the way...
(the Pinocchio fennel from last week was a surprise from my sweetheart, because he knew I've been looking for it for a long time)

Three trees near Thixendale, Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter (2008)
Felled trees on Woldgate (2008)
The landscape pieces by David Hockney portray the four seasons of the year in Hockney's beloved Yorkshire. With the loose application of paint and use of colours the work refers to one of Hockney's major sources of inspiration: Vincent van Gogh. "Van Gogh makes you see the world around you just a little more intently. He could draw anything and make it enthralling.", according to Hockney.
You can visit this exhibition of Hockney until May 17th in Het Noordbrabants Museum in Den Bosch. This exposition forms part of the theme year Van Gogh 125 years of inspiration.
