Am busy these days painting in Wijk Aan Zee, (just north of Haarlem), during the art manifesation, Ezels En Kwasten 2012. Yesterday, the sky finally broke open after many days of overcast dismal weather,  these lovely thick clouds were being blown in from the land, affording me the oppurtunity to represent them on this piece of linen. Characteristic of this beach are the many beach houses privately owned, lined up against these spectacular high dunes. The next few postings will be of paintings from this location.
