This is a very personal painting to me, it depicts a street on the island of Ameland. This little island in the North Sea is where I made my first steps and where I would spend most of my vacations as a child, first on the campgrounds and later at my grandparents home, after they moved there from Amsterdam. The lighthouse is one of the tallest in our country, and it can be seen from everywhere on the island. My grandmother would call it 'my friend', because at night I would be able to see the light go swoop, swoop, swoop and I would count the swoops until I fell asleep.


This mixed media painting on wood is created using a combination of image transfer and acrylic paints and mediums together with textured papers. The artwork comes with a wire on the back for hanging, it is signed on the front and has title, date, artist name and a signed certificate of authenticity from the artist on the back.


Be advised that colors and brightness depend on your monitor and the digital picture may be slightly different from the original work of art.
