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.

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!
