2013 - I have painted two large canvasses for the local town hall of Lisse. The two paintings have a historic theme. They both show the forest of Lisse. Added on the black background are: plastic V1 and toy soldiers, an image of Jacoba van Beieren, 2 ornaments that were involved in an earlier project that was cancelled at the last moment and an image of the old church. On the coloured background are added: 5 local men that died during or short after the ww2, a big bowl carries a tekst. The tekst in both paintings is based on an English poem: Love in the valley by George Meredith.
