Istanbul.

I was travelling by myself to Istanbul in 2008. There I met one of the greatest musicians and a darbuka player, a man with the golden groove, Hakan Kaya, who taught me how to play the darbuka. …two weeks living with the musicians in the heart of Istanbul, being part of turkish weeding, practising and listening to so many different kinds of folk music, smoking ”nargile”, drinking a tasteful ”çay”, a good black turkish coffee and ”Rakı” with friends… it’s for sure, everything ends someday, but good…

I decided to share with you some of my fun memories from my travels and vacations.…

Sheepie Rambo.

I received a kind mail from Kate with her photo of a sheep, called Rambo. Rambo used to live in Australia and Kate asked me if I could draw him. I said to myself: “Sure, why not, he’s so cute!!” I tried to paint him just the way he was from my point of view, courageous, persistent, strong but kind and soft-hearted at the same time. I really hope and wish that my painting reflects the correct image of him, do…
