"Grey gardens." Doetinchem, Holland.

Grey that you could say about today.
Richard Schmid would love this light and he's right light isn't
changing, the colour receding quite naturally and you palette is
brilliant lit. All in one perfect weren't it for the drizzle.

"left overs." Doetinchem, Holland.

So finally I moved!!
Now I only have to settle, moving boxes everywhere, but
I can paint again and with a little luck paint on a regular base.

Today I went more or less to the same spot as the last posting,
just a few minutes biking from my home, ... what a treat.

Skaters heaven

One thing that I really like is my MP3 player.
Especially when painting on these kinds of spots.
There was nobody around and looking at the track there
where not that many on it since it was frozen over.

The ice was soo fresh and awesomely black it cracked
while walking on it, ... thats where the MP3 player is
a great gadget, turn up the volume and you arn't that
chocked anymore when the cracking sound is very loud.
