The world is white, cold, but also so beautiful... I had to get out and start painting. This time with my favorite willows. Nature is white with frost and that makes me warm again. In the distance a cyclist arrived who already shouted from a distance "that can only be one who is going to paint now"...
That was Eduard Camping who organizes special (nature) hikes and we had an extensive and nice conversation. He took a few more pictures which can be seen below. Towards the end of the afternoon, people passed by for the second time. Somewhat concerned, they asked if I had any hot drinks with me. Then also a lady who sweetly said to me "you're here before dark, right?!
And well it got really dark when I started cleaning up, my palette was already frozen, but I got the work done despite all the nice heartwarming conversations! thx
