Wow, you were busy! I like "Wijnbrug" the best; it almost looks like an abstract design at first glance.
Nice work!

Hi Rene, can't believe how productive you are. I've been following your work for a while now after reading a comment you made on Marc Hansons blog.
Great batch of paintings, I like the Zalmdrijvershuisje the best.

"Dutch Spring" is gorgeous! It's so refreshing and really captures Holland...
