Who doesn't love Bloomingdale's Flagship in New York. At the moment they are having a contest "Bloomingdale's Big Window Challenge". Interior designers, Eileen Joyce Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan and Eddie Ross have created 3 dwellings in the shop windows. My absolute favourite is "The Modern Woman by Eddie Ross for ELLE Decor".

Barbara Joy Smit. Barbara is a hard working gallerist with great eclectic taste. She profoundly believes that art should be accessible, for everyone to enjoy. Her gallery is beautifully setted in the historic centre. If you are in the neigbourhood this Saturday do join us for some art and a glass of wine! (photo by Henny van Belkom)

I love my house. It is warm and bohemian with touches of "Dutchness": the Delft blue pottery I use in my paintings, my bright orange hallway and bunches of fresh flowers around the house. Picture by Margre Mijer.

Barbara Joy Smit Gallery in Maassluis opening Saturday 16th of January. One of the paintings I have been working on today is a detail of colourful kitchen (oil on canvas 40x120cm). The kitchen only exists in my mind. As with a lot of my work I mix an imaginary cocktail of favourite objects, patterns and colours which I translate to my canvas. The painting still needs some work but it is getting there definitely!
