"...I always question myself if an
harbor is a place to stay or to go
Depends on the ropes (ties) I guess..."
While being in Holland, visiting my Mother-in-
law, who is very ill, we had many dinners in
Loosdrecht's harbor, which inspired me to paint
The music gives this painting an extra melancholic effect, which really makes me feel home sick.

I used a lot of texture in this painting (impasto) see detailed picture. Since an oil impasto would take up to a year to dry, I used a modeling paste texturing the canvas first. Then I just painted this oil with big rough bristles (dry brushing technique) and lots of different palette knives.
