Still standing. Doetinchem, The Netherlands.

Found an other very old farm, ... soo sad to see these old and for me historic buildings rot away.
The Doetinchem goverment doesn't care about their heritage, that's for sure.

Still busy

Still busy in the garden, so to stay on the radar just an other one from last year, ...
more or less the same time btw. I'm not that sad that I can't paint, it's horrible grey
outside and although Tom Hughs loves it apparantly I don't see the "sparkle" in it.

Make me a decent offer and it's yours, ... Framed and shipped.

Oude IJssel. Doetinchem, The Netherlands

Doetinchem, my hometown is changing soo rapidly you can paint
it alsmost every year from the same spot, ... as this one. There use
to be a large storage building but they all took that down and replaced
it by these saw-roofed appartments. To be honest I like that, I like it
when architect and local goverment keeps there heritage in mind when 
planning a new neighborhood.

Haarle. Autumn 2018-II Haarle, The Netherlands

First one of my painting trip into the Woods, ...
It's so rewarding not to get lost in there, painterly spoken that is,
cause I just walk the same round each day (about 5 clicks) twice.

Duffelbag 40 ltr.
The North Face.

A great painting bag, thanks for the idea Antti
I bought a slightly smaller one but it still fitts all my gear with even some room to spare.
The sholder straps are a bit basic, but there is enough handles to grip it everywhere which would be very convenient during a journey by public transport.
Anyhow, I'm so far very pleased with this one.
