"IJspret." Westervoort, Holland.

This could well be the last day this is possible
tomorrow they forecast melting.
I made this one yesterday, what a feast!
The girl in the red coat skated up and down and
was excited how I was maneged to put her into my painting.

And no, their is no resemblance, hehehe.

Beautiful! I am envious that you can paint all these people - we are on our own here in the middle of nowhere! (Does have its advantages sometimes, though...)

René PleinAir said...

Thanks Rob, ...
You where so right about the watermelon heads but then again
painting people isn't my cup of tea, especially not when there are standing about 5 to 10 behind you watching how your making a mess out of them, ....

Oow no problem Liza, I gladly would come by as a model, and to paint of course, hehehe

Very welcome, René!
