Getting ready for the art trail: 'Kunstroute Tholen' 29 + 30 April

This time next week will be the art trail here in Tholen and I've spent most of the week looking for solutions for displaying the art work...we've got quite a collection now!  My newest works are these oil paintings of ladies and girls from Zeeland in their traditional outfits....oh and a few cats...don't forget the cats! The woodern panels were made by a local carpenter, Sjaak Lindhout, and they allow me to hang the paintings in groups without making loads of holes in the wall! 

We'll be displaying work from the art classes too...and I'm hoping to demonstrate how etchings are made. Tholen really looks her best on the Queen's birthday (30th April), with bunting in the streets and ateliers in the 17th and 18th century buildings. Throughout the day there will be concerts in the churches and 14th century former Town Hall. Come along and say 'hello'!
