'It’s not the job of the artist to give the audience what the audience wants. If the audience knew what they needed, then they wouldn’t be the audience. They would be the artists. It is the job of artists to give the audience what they need.' (Alan Moore)⁠
⁠
Somehow I feel 2020 was exactly this, not what I wanted, but what I needed.⁠
⁠
Above all it felt like a humbling year. A year to sit still and reconsider, find new purpose, take in and transmit years of overdue emotions and ideas and to be bored. I feel boredom is such a great source for creativity. I have been so productive. 🙏⁠
⁠
2020 also opened up a whole new realm of possibilities to connect and the digital social networks gave me horizons, not only to start new friendships, it helped me to share my stories and helped me to grow my art business. ⁠
⁠
I have had to open myself to be helped, to be loved, to be humble. I am part of this ecosystem of love and be loved, help and be helped, give and receive. ⁠
⁠
So, goodbye unforgettable 2020. And thank you for being a turning point teacher! ⁠

WIN, WIN WIN! Second day of my heart give away art price!  A big energetic winter solstice is coming up this Monday, so let’s create a sharing ritual!  In this awkward year I have been spreading ritual pieces around the globe. It has been so important for me to see this ritual art loving community steadily grow and I am absolutely delighted, honored and often stunned by the hundreds of likes and lovely comments my posts are receiving.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!🙏🙏  You have all given me so much positive energy, that I feel it’s time to give something back to you. Therefore I am sending two love spreading ceramic Appreciation Hearts around the globe. Hearts that give you a feeling of closeness and bonding to a loved one you might not be able to visit this year.  This is how it works:
1. You comment on this post (with minimum 3 words) and tag a friend in there, @friend.
2. The friend then has to follow me 👍
3. This Monday 21–12 at 21:12 hours I will randomly pick one of the contesters 🥳

Arnout is designing a absolutely inspiring incredible soul nurturing coaching program starting in January! The nest will be part of the experience. Our soul farm is getting more and more the way we want it to be!! And building nest is sooo rewarding!!

Generation Fixit.
Three years ago our oldest son Gaje came home from school again... sad, frustrated, angry, exhausted. This was how he had felt for years. We were worried as we were sending him to a place where he was locked out and forced into a way of thinking that had an unhealthy effect on his mind, and on many others with him.  Traditional schooling is no setting for development. The assembly line structure, the lack of color, nature and creativity, learning little through much repetition, being taught things so unfitting to the world our kids are growing up in. It was damaging my sons health and self esteem.  Education is a human right and so important for our kids! Learning is an unstoppable need, once awoken, and it has to be nurtured as a gift in stead of being forced on our kids as a discouraging obligation.
Now, the worse thing is that we produced a library full of research confirming we are doing a shit job with our public education. We are not creating the surroundings for kids to prepare them for the versatile time they will be in when they finish school. They are being molded to the archaic dysfunctional system we have to get rid of.  This is why we made the boldest decision in our life; we started homeschooling. He now studies the subjects he is interested in and we supply information and enable him, give him the tools, to go on his endeavors.  He relaxed and is growing up to be an aware, caring, social, creative and venturous human being. Who says teenagers have to be angry at a certain age, that it is normal to hate adults? Maybe anger is the natural response to our educational system....  What I am most impressed by during the Covid times is that our governments can make big changes on a large scale and fast. All the nonsense they are feeding us that change is hard and slow can go overboard, it is just a matter of urgency.  So let's give education the urgency it deserves and take this transforming energy, our human talent to adapt, into a green, open-minded, sustainable direction. Let's educate and organize our world according to what we know works and with an open mind to keep changing when needed. Let’s nurture generation fix-it.
