First after.

As I told in the reaction in my latest blog,
it has been an exhausting week.
Yesterday it was a beautiful but also
very sad day during the cremation ceremony,
and today it's a little odd to getting on with live.
I've found this little waterlilies
during one of my bike tours the last days
(getting some fresh air once and again)
an thought today just try,
it couldn't harm if it's not working out,

so here you are my first after.

"De eerste juweeltjes." Westervoort, Holland.
(The first after.) Oil on board. 24 x 30 cm.

Hé René, dat is zeker een schok om van zo dichtbij iemand kwijt te raken. Het is mij twee weken geleden overkomen, dus helaas weet ik hoe je je moet voelen.

Heel veel sterkte met het verwerken van het verlies. Het leven gaat echt weer door, hoe moeilijk dat soms ook is. Het is daarom goed dat je je schilderspullen weer uit de kast hebt gehaald.
