My dear painter friend, Lynn Golden, is over from St. Just in Roseland, Cornwall.(see www. Lynn Golden.co.uk) This is the second year she has come to Holland to specially paint tulips and other spring flowers. It is a 10 day marathon of keeping the flowers alive and perked- up in the greenhouse while starting one painting after another. Herman starts up the wood-burning stove early in the frosty mornings to get it warm enough to work comfortably. She will leave with a new assortment of beautiful pastels and paintings and then send them off to shows in England. It is a very inspiring time here on the island.
