TURF!! Holland.

Turf, that's what peat is called here in Holland.
Not long ago it was quite a industry here, even my
grandfather worked in the peat industry till he got caught
in this apparatus and lost his leg, exactly this apparatus,
my dad told, it now stands in a locale museum and while being there on vacation
I just had to paint it

"Turf!!" Vriezenveen, Holland.
(Peat!!) Oil on board. 24 x 36 cm.

I really enjoy your work, Rene. The perspective in this piece is so striking. It's very beautiful. Now that I've read the history, I'm fascinated that you were able to find a haunting beauty here, and prominently feature one leg of this hungry machine.
