Family collection, Katwijk
This work started off as a gift for my father. This portrait of my grandfather has a deep personal meaning for me. Together with my father he was one of the most influential men in my life and on my character. The way in which I live, family, my view on manhood and many other things have been influenced vy this man. A man of little words and much action. Remembered in love.
I’d give my right arm just to be able to sit down once more and talk with him for an hour or so.
