On my way to Giesbeek. Duiven, Holland.

Each time when I bike to my Morris I pass this scene
and each time I think I really have to paint it someday.
It has to be done in the early morning because the light
on the far hills is much better then, ... and each time I have
to bike along because the time just isn't there. Today it was
and the light was also good so I am glad that I took the
opportunity. It's somehow a strange scene for Dutch matter
most of the country is soo flat, ... that this hillside is very

Painting in Vlist

Painted with Corry Kooij and Erik van Elven again in
Vlist yesterday. Corry had organized a lovely spot where
we could paint around as much as we wanted. De Vlist
is soo extremely Dutch, even scary for me!

Anyway it was a gorgeous day and well worth the trip.

Thanks Cor and Erik!

"Floating abstract" Giesbeek, Holland.

Made this after a days work on my Morris.
Pity the guys was covering up the boat and
was quiet quick at it aswell so I had to paint
some of it from my camera, ... pity because
this inner space of this vessel is very nice.

"New station." Westervoort, Holland.

Finally Westervoort is getting a station!!
For years the trains run across this large dike but
didn't stop in my hometown, ... this is going to change!

The first work is on their way and I'll guess I'll be painting
some more of this building site.

"Pull up a chair." Velp, Holland.

Revisited my favorite garden centre, ... Overhagen.
They where very very busy because the summer (so it seems)
is in full swing around here, they are at least a month ahead on schedule.

Anyway I found this little corner with a little chair and head.
against a very dark hedge it just popped out soo much!

"Water Surfing in the ASM." Arnhem, Holland.

It's such a low tide here on the Rhine, even little harbours
are drying up. Looks like a tidal harbour which is fine by
me because you don't see boats on dry land that much
over here.

these two guys make all the best of this exceptional condition
the little stream is all that's left of what was a big harbour
entrance. In the back you can see one of the two main bridges
Arnhem has got that goes over the Rhine.
