Today I completed a big work. The tension is great because I have not seen the work yet upright. In fact, it's still flat on my work table. In advance, the idea is ready. I have chosen the pattern after many thinking and looking. I also thought about the colours and the logic of painting.

‘’Is that what you had in your mind? Yes, he does well at first glance.’’ For me, it's just as new as any other new viewer who sees it for the first time. Then the real looking is going to start: every moment of the day it's changing. I discover new things that I can keep up with. It may take weeks before the work has given it all.                     – Helen Briels
