"Zonnebloemenzee." De Horst, Holland.

"Zonnebloemen draaien
met de zon mee
van vroeg tot laat
met de zon mee
tot hij ondergaat

's nachts
draaien zonnebloemen
niet vlug
's nachts
draaien zonnebloemen
weer zachtjes terug

tot de zon komt
met de zon mee
zonnebloemen zee".

(Text: Hans en Monique Hagen.)

("Sunflowers sea."

"Sunflowers turn
along with the Sun
from early morning
til late in the evening they
follow the Sun till he sets.

At night,
the Sunflowers turn
without any rush.
At night,
the  Sunflowers turn
slowly back again.

Til the Sun comes up
they follow the Sun,
Sunflowers sea.")

"Canadian War Cemetery." Groesbeek, Holland.

If you ever have a change to paint a war cemetery, ... go for it!
I did it several times and each time it's soo impressive.
You really feel that it is an honor to do and that somehow your
being watched, not spooky in any way but just that you
become aware how much effort it took that you have the
freedom to paint whatever you want, ...
