Last week I painted at Misti under a shelter in the rain, > There <

Arnhem who painted a detail of the shipyard it self.

"Last summerfield." Westervoort, Holland.

Searching for a nice spot to paint, I came across this waste field which
is designated to become a industrial area. It was full of rape blooming for
the last time, and together with the sunrise it was just awesome to paint.
Every spot is worth painting, ...

"Laatste zomerveld." Westervoort, Holland.
(Last summerfield.) Oil on panel. 24 x 30 cm.

Btw. I noticed that Blogger has changed the way you can watch the picture
when clicking on it. It use to be very detailed but now it isn't anymore.
The way to watch it more closely now is by clicking it with your right-mouse click
and then select the 'Open in new window' button. I like the more detailed look from
other artist a lot so I thought others might do the same with my paintings.

"Station Square Zevenaar." Zevenaar, Holland.

You could almost think that I am living in Zevenaar.
But that isn't right, I am visiting a physiotherapist for my wrist,
instead on an operation which an surgeon suggested I've decided
to visit a physiotherapist for a thorough treatment, and I think it's
helping, ... at least he's not cutting into my painters-hand.
