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.
