Finally summer. And some more knowledge

Something different It seems that my annual winter depression this year, due to the lockdown and to the unusually sunless, cold and wet spring, lasted for half a year instead of a few weeks. I was of course happy to be able to paint and read, but I was also thrilled to discover many interesting courses at  Coursera , which I loved to audit. And that was not few. Proud of this list so far. But I don't intend to stop. I like to learn. So there's still a lot planned, maybe after the summer break. Hoping that this long depression is finally over, I am now fully enjoying the nature around and  our garden  again. And I'm also working now on a new small but nice art project for our island. I hope to report on that very soon. So, see you soon, take good care of your mental health, and of the others. more courses in progress

Some rooftops again

Spring has finally come Another painting of another corner in our village. The almost four centuries old but perfectly preserved buildings of the neigbouring museum look lovely and romantic at every season. This year the unusual weather made our ancient pear trees blossom quite late. So I was happy to catch and to paint this small scenery. Using again the limited palette of blue, red and yellow, plus white and burnt umber. Will we get a nice crop of pears this summer? Well, have a good summer averyone! So it became the Bij Sorgdrager, acrylic, canvas 30x24 cm. The result is to see in  My gallery . in progress
