Something different for a change

Wachten op haar baasje , bij De Smidse, ZL
oil on wood panel - 22 x 30 cm
painted on location -  Sat 20 Jan 2024

Luckily for me I happened to be at this location on the, up till now the only days that we have had snow in Holland. Have been visiting this quaint hotel on a number of occasions in the past several years, however this was the first time with all that fluffy white stuff on the ground. A favorite hotel by many people, especially dog owners, as their beloved pets are allowed to stay in the hotel as well.

Koeien in de stal, op de ouderwetse boerderij

These paintings are both made at the same location, with some further work on them in the studio. In Holland who doesn't like a painting with cows as the subject? Answer, nobody. They are cow crazy in this country, I'm not kidding you.  Anyway was fun to join my plein air painter friend Rene, who lives just a stones throw away from this old fashion farm., I loved it, and am looking forward to returning.
