Berkelaarlaan 5. Doetinchem, The Netherlands.

Got in a battle with one of the roosters, ... it's one "Game-stopper" I would never inmagine but really it sure does. I kicked him a few times (sorry for that) but it only made him even more ferocious.

James Gurney​ never mentioned that one tho in his Gurney Journey posting :


But in the end I tweaked it a little back home and even put the rooster back where it belongs, ... ;-)

Holtrop has left the woods. Doetinchem, The Netherlands

Last weekend I discovered they are going to rearrange a nearby park as well
it usually starts with cutting down all trees which is a shame though, but it
gives awesome nice subjects, ... so I'm guessing you will be seeing more of
these kind of paintings the upcoming days.

Pintar Rapido 2016

Been to Amsterdam yesterday to attend Pintar Rapido, ... I like the event
mainly because it's free for everyone, but I didn't submit my painting because
I don't like the new direction it's going. The sellection between amateurs and
(semi) professionals is plein rubbish in my mind, the qualtity of work should do
that job. It seems now a days that how lower the quality of work is the harder the
artists are yelling that they are the best and demand special threatment. To top this
all off they asked the most shouting person in The Netherlands to be part of the judging
committee! I'm not prepared to be Judge by such people, I leave it to the ordinairy guy
in the street during my daily painting sessions, ... who in the end, will buy my work.

















Anyhow, it was a great day! Met Saskia Koppelaar the wife of Frans an artist which
I admire for ages. To bad he wasn't around but I did saw and liked the exhoubition which opens
today for that matter.

If you are in the neighborhood do take a peek at:


It's well worth the effort!!

Here my effort of yesterdays paintingtrip to the little village called Amsterdam.
