Online sales country-wise
Since recently I am restructuring my online sales by targeting different countries via specialised sites such as Frescofy in The Netherlands and Arts 4 Special in the UK. More countries soon to follow. Here some pictures that are now online on these sites.
During several removals in the past many things went lost or are still in unopened boxes. Sometimes I open a box like a few weeks ago. This box contained photographs of some of our travels. Still looking for many, many, other travel memories; especially the numerous ones for my work to the USA. Hopefully these pop un in times to come.
Second impression is that of Thorn; a historical village in the South of the Netherlands. All pictures are scanned and where possible digital improved. (these pictures I found in a box 3 yrs ago)
When the Germans made there ‘Autobahnen’ throughout their country the slogan was “Immer Gerade Aus” (=”Always straight forward”). I thought about that when I recently drove up North from our village. I also remember a true story from my youth when a German lost his way in my village of birth (Beneden-Leeuwen, Netherlands) and asked road directions to the bridge over the river. The old man he asked knew his German: “Immer gerade aus. Immer gerade aus”, the villager answered, “and at Hent de Kul turn right (the last part in his dialect and probably needless to say that ‘Hent de Kul’ was the name of another villager).
For the second picture I just turned myself around.
Last year we went on a 4-week journey to Europe and Canada. It was for the first time since more than 11 years that we had a holiday ‘out of (South) Africa. We mainly visited family and friends but in between we took time to travel around a bit. With my Sony Cybershot 7.2 I shot a few thousand low resolution pictures (average 100 kB each) so don’t expect much high quality. For this serie of 10 I selected about 30 pics.
Today’s images are from the estate of artists Huub & Adelheid Kortekaas in Winssen in The Netherlands. ‘De Tempelhof’ is a sacred symmetric garden with symbols representing the different mainstream religions in the world next to different other works of both artists. The garden is not open for the public except on ‘open days’ and on special appointments.
