Pleinair in June, 2014. Oil painting of yet another huge size 65×90 cm. Weather-beatened my hands, trying to hold my canvas against wind blowing me away. — в Utrecht.
This view is just around the corner or our house. I remember when I was painting it, a man came out of a house nearby and invited me to see some paintings in his apartment. He and his wife were moving that day to another town and after just a five minute talk they invited me to their new place to stay over a night and maybe to paint in that area. Dutch people never stop to impressed me by their hospitality.
