by my departure date, 26 September, I had painted 13 canvases!
one of these, a mostly firey deep red with burnt orange broad strokes against the deep blue sky
was bought by my friend C in America. Herman made a sturdy ply wood box for the flights over. unfortunately when I got to the luggage belt at Bradley, the box was not there. it’s now over a week of constant calling the Aer Lingus tracing department. I strongly wonder if someone thought the box interesting, and snatched it up. there is no security at the Hartford baggage retrieval area. what bad luck! I can only hope that the someone, if this scenario is true, has hung it in a prominent place and loves it.
c’est la vie!

What a Paradise, that island, cultivated with love and care.
I have chosen to spend long periods of time here in Cummington, Ma. Here I paint mostly portraits. In August I will return to painting waterlilies in Holland.
It is a good life.

I have neglected this Blog far too long. I was so busy painting portraits and listing them on Facebook.
we are having these incredible skies here as fall storms begin in Holland. first day that we haven't biked. the light seems very defined and colors deep.this is an old study but hangs in the kitchen as we both like it.

I have neglected this Blog for many months. not that I am not painting, because it is about painting, but because life is rather complicated at the moment.
I am in Cummington,Ma., USA, preparing for my 3rd exhibit:The Heart of the HilktownsIII. hopefully I will reach the 50 portrait paintings before the opening 6 October. first returning to Voorweg 22 for 5 weeks to fulfill a number of paintings there.
