oil on canvas - 70 x 50 cm

Yes folks, take a good look, because this will be probably the last time you see this cobalt blue landmark on our beloved stretch of Earth, known as Zuiderstrand. Next season it will be replaced with a lower object and from what I hear, not right up against the dunes. Over the years I've made at least 3 dozen, if not more paintings, which feature this exclusive clubhouse. It is situated next to the beach Cafe/Restaurant, De Fuut, which has a cadmium yellow light hue finish. Together they sparkle like a diamond in Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry box. Another unique quality of this work, is that it is most likely the last hot summer look scene of Zuiderstrand I will be painting this year.
