Dinner time

Dinner time, oil on canvas 60x80cm, painting of a Stabyhoun eating from a bowl by Philine van der Vegte
"Dinner time" This is a painting of our black and white Stabyhoun eating from her stainless steel bowl on the floor. Oil on canvas 60x80 cm, available on Etsy.
Wikipedia: The Stabyhoun or Stabij is one of the top five rarest dog breeds in the world. It is from Friesland and in particular from the Frisian forest area, a region in the southeast and east of Friesland. The breed has been mentioned in Dutch literature going back to the early 1800s, but has only extended its range from the 1960s outside of Friesland and not until the 2000s did the range officially extended beyond the Netherlands. The name Stabij translates roughly as "stand by me" with the last part simply Frisian, meaning dog, which is pronounced "hoon". The dog is considered a Dutch national treasure. There are only a few thousand Stabyhouns in existence today worldwide.

The fish smoker

Fish smoker in Monnickendam, plein air painting by Philine van der Vegte
"The fish smoker", oil on panel 20x30 cm, painted en plein air at the Monnickendammer Visdagen where men smoke mackarel and herring. It was windy and lots of rain as well, I kept on drying my painting with a bit of cloth in between showers. Then, big gusts of wind. Brushes fell into the water, one of the skippers fished them out for me from his boat. Hurrah! Still, I think the old smoker turned out nice with his oil drum for smoking the fish in, and his yellow parasol for the rain. And finally we got a bit of sun as well!

Off to Noordwijk painting festival!

So I'm all packed and ready to go to Noordwijk painting festival this afternoon. I'll stay there all week, and you're most welcome to visit. See www.schilderfestival.eu for location details. Finished paintings of all 50 participating painters will be hung up in the festival tent immediately and are for sale. We're expecting great weather, so lots of sunny paintings this year!
I'll post the paintings as much as I can on this blog, and certainly on Facebook and Instagram. They will be available online after my return (if not sold off the easel).
