The painting ‘The weight of the world, the world awaits’. Has been selected from more then 1000 entry’s to be shown at castle Slot Zeist as part of the Dutch Portrait Price (De Nederlandse Portretprijs)! Earlier -in 2017- another work was selected. It is nice to be part of this again and to see the work shown in a great location with other portraits (50 total, paintings and sculptures).
Opening possibly end of June ’21.
My painting was selected for this nice book, with a lot of contemporary portrait art:
After more then one year, going to several venues in England and Scotland. The ‘Girl without pearl earring’ has returned safely.
The painting was exhibited as part of the BP Portrait award 2019 in the National Portrait Gallery London and Edinburg.
It was a very nice experience to be part of. Thanks to the great model @Faredajohnson, who stated her complexion is ‘the lightest shade of black’.
I will add to this: Vive la difference!
Last month I made a special newsletter about making and acquiring a portrait.

I had a nice talk with Anneke Oele in my atelier. About the works I made and several other things. It is a sort of introduction or compact showcase of artist working in this region in the city of Groningen.
I am lucky working in an old building from about 1905.

Our next guest (born 1976) is a professional artist living in Groningen, the Netherlands. He creates figurative art, mostly oil paintings. Before this, he studied and worked as a psychologist. Bas’ art allows us to give free rein to our own imagination. His art is capable of enveloping us in a world between what is and what is not. It is becoming entrapped in a moment where you can see how each subtle brushstroke gives more than one story to tell and somehow or another you are a witness to this all. His works of art allows us to step before an entrance that contains an array of tales and each one deserves one’s attention. In all, his works of art have a certain freedom to them that simply invite you for more.
