Today a photo from 2013 that I came across in my archive and immediately brought back many beautiful memories. Here I was working for the exhibition "Closer to the IJssel" at Galerie Lenten in Epse ...
There we had an amazing opening with many guests and super organized by the passionate gallery owner Roelof Lenten. His faith in me and my work, his good advices have brought me a lot and I am still grateful to him for that.
In preparation for this exhibition I painted a lot on the IJssel. On this painting day the weather was good and it was a joy to be at the IJssel In Gorssel. And you can meet an important friend in my life "Amy". (who thinks she's a chihuahua ;-))

"Roelof was loved, flamboyant, loyal and cheerful"
On Monday April 26, 2021, Roelof Lenten unfortunately passed away. We wish Gerda and family a lot of love and strength.
Rest in peace Roelof...
