BUY A LIMITED EDITION AND HELP THE PEOPLE IN UKRAINE
My painting ‘Protection’ pays attention to the terrible situation in Ukraine.
Because several people asked me if there will become a limited edition of this painting, I decided to make it available.
But I found it also a nice thought when this painting really can help the innocent victims of this war.
Therefore, 50% of the proceeds of every limited edition will be donated to the International Red Cross. The donations will help this humanitarian organization to provide water, food, shelter and medical supplies to those who need it most, both in Ukraine and bordering countries.

There is still a lot to do (especially on the outside) but after a long period of construction work I could finally move in and enjoy this fantastic place to live.
My new atelier/gallery is in the back of the house. There is enough space to show my work, the light comes from all sides through the upper windows, and the roof is so high that it’s perfect to make large paintings. Soon I will officially start working here. The blank canvas is already on the easel…
NEW PLACE TO WORK - update
Many people ask me how everything is going with my new studio/gallery/house. So here is a little update.It is surrounded by a typical Dutch landscape with green meadows and grazing cows and sheep. To blend in the landscape, the architecture is inspired by a Dutch farmhouse with modern elements and a lot of glass. My new studio is build like a typical hay barrack. These constructions were very common in the Netherlands and were/are used for storing hay on a farm. On the outside the building is almost finished, on the inside there’s still a lot to do. So it will take some time before I can work and live on this beautiful place. Probably next summer…; I can hardly wait :)
NEW PLACE TO WORK
Maybe this is a very strange picture, but it makes me very happy. Because this will become my new place to work.
After a long time of preparations, the building is finally started. It will take a while before I can start painting in this new atelier. But in the end of next year, I hope to work overhere and enjoy the wide view over a typical Dutch landscape. I’m really looking forward to it…
