Paris Notre Dame

I was horrified by the fire in the Notre Dame in Paris, last week. Visited it a number of times, admired the stained glass windows and the mighty organ. Such a beautiful place.
I made this drawing back in October 2009, during a visit to Paris. There was a Maria procession on the Seine. I just could not leave this event unnoted.

The enigma of a monday at noon

I went to an exposition, the Tefaf in Maastricht. there were some Giorgio de Chirico paintings.
I was inspired by these, and made my own version.
Ink drawing, digitally coloured.

Koerennen / Kowrenne

A commission drawing of the Cowrunning festivities in Hoensbroek.
I made this drawing (size A4) for a friend, Bert.
Some 20 years ago he initiated a "Kowrenne" group, of which I was part as well. Later we split up into different groups, but I must say that theirs (Cow B) was even more successful as ours (Cow H).
We stopped some 5 years ago, they last year. This drawing is of their last run. The contest is quite physically demanding, and yes, we all get older.
I made the drawing for his birthday.

Business trip last week. I had to visit an industrial park in Heijningen, in the river delta.
Next to my visiting adress there was this shipyard and winter ship storage.
I had some time left for a quick sketch, before leaving for home.
