The glue had some time to dry, so today I started to brush away the excess coal, and put my studio easel back upright.
It looks like it’s going to be all right :) That’s the feeling I needed, after spending some hours in the hospital because of, again, a new outbreak of my eye infection. Seeing this really cheers me up.

Puzzling with coal, day 5. I filled up the last ‘upper compartment’ and experimented with different variations & sizes of coal to fill up the lower compartments.

Puzzling with coal, day 6: almost there. The first lower compartments now fill up the gap between the stairway and heaven ;-).

Now it’s time to brighten it up: I’ve been dusting off my canvas, and added more light to it.

This afternoon I had to go to UZL again for my eye infection, but couldn’t resist to drive afterwards back to Beringen. And I couldn’t resist neither to take my brush and to add some more shiny strokes, even though I had clean clothes on :-).

My painting is almost ready, but I still have to do a lot of finishing touches. Today I glued some more coal on the edges of the cabin. And I enjoyed once again the space around me very, very, very much. How many times can I say over here that I really LOVE this building? I really do. :-)

Sometimes you get more than what you hoped for. And it feels goooooood :-).
