Pond in Zaandam

Zaandam on the River Zaan not far from Amsterdam.  It is most famous for paintings of houses by Monet when he lived there, and the chocolate factories, of which one remains flooding the area with its lovely aroma.  Here’s a scene from near where we lived.

Viking in Dokkum

This is our summer ‘home’ for the next few years.  It’s a 12 meter Dutch motoryacht built in 1996 with a beautiful interior crafted by the original owner from whom we purchased it.  We have not been to Dokkum yet with this boat.  I used a photo of our first Dutch boat Caprice which we did sail to this small town in Friesland.

Giethoorn miniature paintings

This small village is thick with canals, 180 foot bridges and brick houses with thatched roofs, making for picturesque scenes at every turn.  It was founded by Franciscians circa 1200.  Now 2600 people live there.  We took a boat through the canals.  Here are my favorite spots.  All are miniatures, approximately 4″ x 6″.  The watercolors are on post card stock.

Tall Ships 2015:  Miniatures Paintings and Drawings

[Every 5 years 3-5 masted sailing ships, most of them training vessels, come to Amsterdam.  We sat on the side of the North Sea Canal where I sketched.  And ate pofertjes!  (Small pancakes).   Here are my drawings and paintings from that event.
