ABOUT ME

I’ve lived in Luxembourg since 1991 and I’ve always loved expressing my thoughts in a creative way. The medium that works best for me these days is painting. When I have time to escape my daily routine for a few hours, I enjoy busying myself with colors and brushes and when there’s no time to do so, I love to think and dream about it…

You can also follow my inspiring world on instagram.com/colouredseconds and instagram.com/arthurandkatinka.

Have a look around at my work and leave a comment  or a question. It makes me think about my paintings from someone else’s point of view.  You can also contact me by email: katleenjacobsggl@me.com

Thanks and enjoy snooping around these Coloured Windows.

  1. Hi Katleen! Wanted to thank you for recently visiting my blog and liking one of my posts. I have a too quick look around here and enjoyed your work very much. I will be back!

  2. Gorgeous stuff shown on your blog, yet I suspect that it does not do the real work justice.

    I looked at all your work and really resonate with some of the abstracts, particularly “North”, “Autumn” and the “anonymous” post on April 17. I’m attracted to the complexity of the layers–very well done!

    And thank you for your visit to my blog and the opportunity to find yours!

      many thanks for thinking of me to nominate me for the best moment award

    Beautiful work! I noticed the size you work in….all very large. Do you paint on pre-stretched canvases? Just curious. Glad I found your blog!

  26. Thank you for the like on my writing process (color) piece. I wish I had your magic eye! I really like the almost awake and the one still drying. I clicked on your poems tab and didn’t see any…?

    In case you have the time….this is a short one:

    • Hi, thank you for your kind attention to my work.
      If you click on “poem”, you see all the paintings that inspired Deb writing a poem about/with it, by clicking on the link under the painting you’ll see on his blog the painting again with the poem
      take care
      enjoy

  27. Hi Katleen.
    Many thanks for your visit to my blog and your favourable response to one of the posts.

    I have the utmost admiration (and sometimes envy) for those souls blessed with the ability to transform the images in their minds onto a surface with brush or pen. However, I am grateful that I can feast with my eyes upon creations such as yours. I’m looking forward to meandering through your posts and enjoying your work.

    Kind regards
    FFC
