happy red


it all started with a wish
my wish 
to have my wall in my bedroom
R E D 
by the image above
to do something
really DO it 
by myself
from start to finish
for myself 
is what I am not good at ...
for sommeone else , no problem
for myself ..............

the plan 
it started with knowing
I have to  have a plan
with a beginning ....
 a middle and 
an end .

than I visited someone
who suffers from depressions
and I saw how her life was
and all the possibilities she has
but was  not able to use
and I realised
I had to take my own first step 
make my own plan
when I got home
I started by finding inspiring
images on my pinterest board
and the one above
is my color-inspiration

I saw this

offered these for sale
on facebook 
all in one sale 
I knew 
I had to have them
I immediately had an idea
how to use them
on my red wall 
 my project was born
when I reacted on facebook 
I could have them and
it turned out 
it was only 5 minutes from my house !

I never do something like this 
react on such a thing
and going to get them MYSELF 
for me
it was a HUGE step .

next step is going to the store
and have my own RED colour mixed.
it has to be a warm red 
with a kind of orange touch 
so I am thinking of
 having some orange too
 and decide by myself
 to use that across eachother 
Now you know I am NOT a handyman !

I have this idea
for "my" frames to collect things
I love and put them in the frames 
as .... pictures
but also words or sentences
well I better show you 
when it's done .
the colours will be 
red*orange*pink*bit yellow
and G O L D .

today I saw for the first time 
work from an Italian artist 
named Arianna Caroli 
it was a You Tube movie
and I LOVED IT .
I do not know how to show it
overhere so I just let you know 
how it is called 
and you can maybe see for yourself 

L'Officiel Thailand - Culture 
"Art is Forever"
by Arianne Caroli.

work in progress
I am excited

  1. I can't wait to see what you do with all of your frames.

    And, red is always a good idea!

  2. Lieve Francis, WAT een GEWELDIG plan! Ik zie het eigenlijk al een beetje voor me............
    Ik ben heel erg benieuwd en je weet.......EENS kom ik bij je op de koffie! Heel veel liefs, Lia

  3. WOW. Francis, I just watched Arianna Carolli and have saved that Youtube video to my Pin Board. It's all about CHANGING, TRANSFORMING. This life is just the beginning, Francis! This is our PRACTICE stage for the real CHANGE one day. BRAVO FOR YOU, for any of us who take the challenge to GO OUT and do something whether it's painting a room, going out of our comfort zone. I have to learn this lesson EVERY DAY as a teacher. I have struggled in the last 3 years, teaching at the middle and high school levels after having reached a comfort zone in the elementary level for nine years. I've cried, I've doubted...but Arianna said something very important in her presentation, something I just recently wrote about in my quotes: GRATITUDE. While we are thankful along our journey, a spiritual transformation occurs.

    I know you are thankful for so much. NOW? GO OUT AND DO WHAT YOUR HEART WISHES, and fear not.

    Much love, Anita

  4. Your blog site jolted me awake. Your writing style and thoughts give me pause. The photos you present are filled with so much color I feel joy! You are stretching, being that I feel we are of similar age I think that is what we are doing now. A book club that I joined has done this for times uncomfortable....but has made me grow. I am following you and appreciated what you have to say. Bobbie

    1. thank you for your comment . I have been searching to find yours but I cannot find you . Please let me know where I can find you .

  5. RED, how I love this color, Francis! It IS a happy color, isn't it? These are cool frames, and that's great that you went to pick them up yourself and have a few ideas on what you're going to do with them. I can't believe it was only 5 minutes away from your house! Pink and Red is even sweeter, love those colors together. I look forward to seeing what you create, Francis. Good luck with this project.

    love, ~Sheri
