“It’s beginning to look a lot like… (dragons)” – fijne dagen / season’s greetings!
“It’s beginning to look a lot like… (dragons)”
I painted this christmassy work in order to start a Christmas card sale to raise money for the Dutch national foundation for elderly people, het Nationaal Ouderenfonds. Usually, a group of friends and I meet up once a year to make and write Christmas cards for lonely elderly people. This is where the nationaal Ouderenfonds comes in: they make sure the cards arrive at the right addresses. Because of Covid regulations, my friends and I couldn’t meet up this year. So in stead I had greeting cards printed, showing this work as well as my work ‘De kunstenaar met partner en kerstboom (burgerlijk is het nieuwe anti-burgerlijk)’ or ‘The artist with partner and Christmas tree (bourgeois is the new anti-bourgeois)’. I sold the cards per 5 for €15,- and donated €5,- to the Ouderenfonds for every set sold. This way I was able to raise €185,- for this charity foundation. The cards sold way faster than I predicted, through my facebook and instagram accounts, that’s why I only write about it here now. Still, I hope you’ve had very happy holidays and I wish you all the best for 2021!
