"Vanaf het ijs." Westervoort, Holland.

Effort form this morning, at first I was the only one
on the ice, with my MP3 player on what maybe
isn't a good idea after all because a girl came by
and started ice skating, but she gave it up because
the ice was cracking to much, ...

Could be a lesson?! ... Maybe one in the top 100 as well!

"Vanaf het ijs." Westervoort, Holland.
(From the ice.) Oil on panel
24 x 30 cm.

John Vander Stelt said...

Nice work! Makes me want to paint a winter scene. Great color...or should I say lack of color. I live in the USA but still have relatives who live in Amersfoort. Best wishes.

This is one of my favourites. It reminds me of the lake where I used to iceskate when I was a child. Maybe it IS the same spot... who knows.
