"Laatste keer." Doetinchem, Holland.

This is very strange for me, the place I am painting from
wasn't possible in all my life. All the green grass was build
and also a large parking for cattle carriers. Left from me
you should know there was a huge hall where a locale cattle
market was held each week. I grew up here, you can see my
street on the right, ... as a kid I would go up very VERY
early to see all the cattle and lorries that would load them out.
Sometimes a cow broke out and ended up in our garden,
you can imagine how that poor beast would feel after
running through several flower-gardens and hedges.

Now it's gonna developed and I reckon that everything you
see here is a one time possibility, ...

"Laatste keer." Doetinchem, Holland.

This is so beautiful. It feels like a Dutch master painting! Argh, I need to get back to Holland!

It looks a quiet place now. What a shame it's going to be built on.

Hi all,

Thanks for the nice comments, ...

Erin you got to hurry they change it sooo fast, ...

Quiet indeed Keith, but it's just new grass you'r seeing beneath it's just earth.

No no last time for now, Luc just taking a little distance for a moment. It's hard to get going in this time of year. Waiting for new inspiration so to say.

Bonjour René,
Great work. What's the price for it ? Could you email me ? :
Thank you

I am a fan of your country, of your architecture. I've visited it very often in the past.
