Like a painting
Yesterday, I cycled my daily tour which is not everyday the same route. Not having so much choice of new routes within my range of kilometres I want to cycle maximum. Starting the normal track the first kilometres I decided to go left at a crossroad instead of straight ahead. I discovered new sights and beauty. After maybe one kilometre I came on a part the old track. A few days ago while cycling and passing a Gallery I stopped and stepped into the world of art. Since I started to bike last year and passing this sign gallery open many times without stopping to visit, the same with a painter who lives nearby. So yesterday I turned to the right. Peddling the pedals of my bicycle I drove to the house of the painter. It is a small “house” or “farm”, they call it in this region Woudboerderijtje or Woudhuisje. These are traditional houses build in the early 1900 in the time this area was known for it poverty. The painter welcomed me. A very nice lady who was glad to show her paintings. The first painting I saw was a painter with skutsjes ( very famous ancient ships from Friesland ) she painted in the morning. She put varnish on it as well to protect it against the elements as this one was placed near the road as part of her garden “exhibition” to draw attention for her artistic work. I have seen a few hundred paintings, drawings, Aquarelle ( Watercolour ). Very nice flowers, landscapes and lakes with sailing boats ships or the fauna of the lakes and wetlands. I did not took my camera with me but I might take some pictures later this year to share with you.
After I came back home I took a picture of a lilly. Have a nice day!
