The Quite Beach is Alive #1 - 2014
oil on canvas - 30 x 80 cm
painted on location - Thurs. 6 March 2014
I walk down the path leading to the sea almost daily. So do many other people, especially dog lovers and persons who appreciate Nature more than the Asphalt Jungle! Of course those blades of grass are not going to notice that Rolex watch your wearing or that Gucci bag strapped to your shoulder. But they will deliver you the right balance of oxygen you need to live in this world. Providing for your eyes visual pleasure beyond measure, and all your other senses will be lifted up as well. All it takes is a comfortable pair of walking shoes and proper clothing. This area is known as "Het Stille Strand", the quite beach. Many citizens of The Hague are fighting with passion and love to keep it this way. While the money worshippers, sick as they are, would rather see this area turned into another Benidorm.
