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

"Op weg naar Giesbeek." Duiven, Holland.

Well, it was definitely worth taking the time to paint this, Rene! A classic beauty.
All your latest work is soooo good!
