why this, why now?

I've decided to try out a blog because I seem to have ideas and get ideas all the time, with no central and accessible way of documenting these ideas. It could be ideas for my own personal projects, ideas for teaching design, design inspiration, or a place to put up some of my own design/art/creative stuff.

So here we go, lets see how well it suits my intentions....

The Keukenhof tulip gardens in The Netherlands that I visited with my Oma (grandmother) in May 2003.  Such a beautiful place, made more special by being able to share it with my inspirational Oma.  She has this painting which is acrylic on canvas and is small at just 230 x 300mm.
