Netherlands Sunset, 8x8 inches, pastel, available.

This painting was done with very cold fingers on a hillside in the southern province of the Netherlands. The wind is cold and the spaces between rain squalls few. This is the only painting I have done so far on this three week trip to visit family. It is nice to be outside in spite of the cold. The dutch term for getting out of the stuffy house, is to get a "Een frisse neus"... a fresh nose.

I have been working on my dutch a lot more than my painting this trip-- largely due to the weather and a bad cold.
