Painting Persons on Places: Dorus Rijkers, Den Helder

Dorus Rijkers was een held. Wie kent niet het plaatje van de stoere zeeman met zuidwester, baard en pijp? Dat is hem. Hij redde als schipper van de roeireddingboot in Den Helder meer dan 500 mensen van de verdrinkingsdood. Roeiende dus, door de stormende zee. We spreken dan ook over zo’n 150 ja

Painting Persons on Places: Dames Vlaanderen, Alkmaar

Wetende dat ik in de Alkmaarse galerie ’t Kasteeltje zou gaan exposeren met mijn schilderijen ging ik op zoek naar markante Alkmaarders. Natuurlijk zijn er velen, maar het werd al snel duidelijk dat ik graag de karakteristieke Dames Vlaanderen wilde portretteren. Omdat de beide zusters overleden

Butterflies in Hortus Amsterdam

Very interesting and beautifull to see all the different butterflies and their pupal stages. The huge butterflies (uiloogvlinders) dance around and land on your shoulder! The smaller orange ones (Flying Dutchmen) are many. We didn't know butterflies eat oranges and bananas... The Butterfly Greenh

Gondola workshop

Lo Squero is one of the few workshops in Venice where gondolas are made the authentic way. Beautifull setting and very interesting to see. Venice people are said to have membrans (?) between their toes. Non-locals need to take a boat to cross the Canal Grande. It's located on Dorsoduro, You're ou

Cycling around Yangshuo
