This summer morning I am thinking back to that place in Noorden, S. Holland, the Netherlands, where I have made my home the last 30 years on a small island. The water lilies are growing profusely according to Herman, their grower.
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.
