On a Wednesday afternoon I was wandering around the old city of Crépy-en-Valois. The narrow cobblestone streets form a kind of maze in the old part of the town. For a while there I almost had the feeling of having gone back in time, until two pelicans and a light blue store front appeared  in front of me.

After spending a morning in Saint-Valéry (France), I took the traditional steam engine of the Baie de Somme to the Crotoy. Along the way it had to stop at Noyelle for a refill. The weather was steaming hot, a true summer holiday trip.

Acrylic on canvas – 90×85 cm

I visited Florence in February 2011. Unfortunately, my memory of this city remains blurry. I remember Gozzoli’s Magus, beggars, a Chinese woman wearing blue boots and selling tourists umbrellas, plenty of young Japanese enjoying the little free time they have after the end of their studies and before entering the work-world in which they will remain non-stop until they retire, the foot of a yellow construction crane, the neon placed along the walls of old buildings turned into hotels and trattorias, the rain, the cold …
