Today I biked to Oosterbeek to paint a house that I wanted
to paint for a long time, ... a vicars house that did duty in the
second world war as a R.A.P. during the operation "Market Garden".
A Regimental Aid Posts just behind Oosterbeek Church, in and around this house of Kate ter Horst. She opened up her home and filled it to capacity with as many of the wounded and dying as she could. Throughout the battle she did all that any one person could do to make her guests comfortable and to ease their suffering.
"De Pastorie." Oosterbeek, Holland.
(The Vicars house.) Oil on board.
22 x 24 cm.
To give an impression on how things where then:
And how it is today:
It's such an honour to be able to paint this house.
