August and September is usually the summer vacation time in the Netherlands. And it is also the most leisurely period of time for the people.

But for me, things are different this year. For the time of August and September, I spent most of my time in my studio in China, busy with my creation work. Although tied, I felt enriched at same time. Same as before, each day I would go to calligrapher Liu Hongwei’s “Cottage” to have a tea break as well as to have a short chat, with my upper body bared and feet in slippers.

 

As scheduled before, in September I would participate in three exhibitions held in different cities in central and northern cities of the Netherlands. “Kunst in de koop” in the city of Steenwijk, “Grensloos kunst verkennen” organized by the Artists Association of Drenthe Province and a group exhibition of 8 artists in Le-art gallery in Groningen. Since by that time I would be already back to China for my domestic creation work, so by convention, I had to put all matters regarding to these exhibitions to my bosom friend Jan to take over. Then before my departure, I worked hard to classify all the exhibits and labeled on the works so as to indicate what works at what time should be sent to what place for exhibition.

 

I know for this summer vacation, Jan was as busy as I was.
