Besides travelling I have another great hobby which is a little less expensive, so that's always nice.

It's oilpainting, but in the past I did also drawing portrets with pastels,pencils etc. I began to paint when the famous tv painter "Bob Ross" was showed on tv in the Netherlands for the first time. I did do some painting and drawing at school but it stopped when I was 15 years old. But I loved Bob Ross back then so I wanted to do that too. So I took lessons but my first Bob Ross painting was really terrible :lol: I think it was in 1996 or something like that.  I was immediatly in love with this lovely hobby, a hole new world was opened for me and I enjoyed it very much untill my mother past away in 2002 at the age of 55. After that horrible day I stopped painting, because I couldn't concentrate anymore. So it took 6 years till I began to paint again. Just a couple of months ago I got the feeling that I wanted to start painting again. And so I did and I love it all over again!!!! I'm just another amateur but that doesn't matter to me, I love doing it and that's the important thing in life don't you agree?

Bob Ross was so calming to watch. His approach was a gentle and polite dispersment of color. I am glad that he had inspired you. You have wonderful work. Thank you for sharing.

Nice blog. Happy to hear that you returned to painting. Sounds like a great way to express yourself. Maybe I will finally pick up the sketch book and draw some of the sites here in EU. Thanks for the inspiration. I always liked Bob Ross and his "magic brush". :)
