"Koning Winter z'n baard." Lobith, Holland.

Exhausted but very satisfied, ...
A bike bike tour to the border of The Netherlands, there
where the Rhine enters Holland. I saw on Maps that
there was some harbours as well over there, and I made some
paintings of boats as well, ... first this one.

The last from today, King Winter is leaving Holland!
He has shaved his beard and hang the hairs all over the
country, ... "Goodbye King, hello Spring!"

"Koning Winter z'n baard." Lobith, Holland.
(Kings beard.) Oil on panel.
24 x 30 cm.
