I turned 50 years old the other day. A short time ago, I was told I will most likely be let go from my job of 15 years within the year. I am tired of the corporate world.

It’s time to try something new. I guess I’ll start painting.

Let’s hope art is more about heart than talent.

If all goes well, I’ll be posting at least once a week, though I can’t promise them at regular intervals. Additional posts may occur spontaneously.

Update:  2 years later.  If you’re interested in seeing posts on the more cynical side inspired by my job that I hated (yes, that one I referred to at the beginning of this “about” page…luckily for me they eventually fired me), feel free to check out my other wordpress blog “land of quo” at  www.landofquo.com.

Otherwise, I hope you enjoy what I’m doing these days on this blog.  Me?  I’m having a great time!

  1. Hi Dirk,

    My name is Margaret Foreman, and I manage the exhibits at the Holland Area Arts Council. Each year, we invite select local participants of the year’s ArtPrize event to display their entries in our galleries for our RePrize exhibit.
    We’d like to invite you to show your work this year! The dates of the exhibit are November 17 – January 13.
    Are you interested in participating?
    We would need you drop off your work November 5-7 during the following hours:

    Let us know if you’d like to participate and if these dates/hours will work for you! If not, we’d really like to work with you on drop off times to make this happen.
    Looking forward to hearing back,
