Etsy Seller Challenge, Day 6: Made Local

Day 6 is about made local, or in my case: made in Rotterdam.

I don’t think it’s possible to live in a city like Rotterdam and to prevent the city from having an influence on my art. Rotterdam is rich in everything: culture, crazy architecture, events, parks, lots of tourism, a big port etc. An interesting city that offers a lot and as every larger city has many problems.

‘t is impossible to go through the city and come back without an idea. The architecture alone is a great inspiration, although I almost never paint cityscapes. But at the same time I am happy that we live in a neighborhood where it is reasonably quiet, although the harbor is pretty close. Sometimes a little distance from city life is pretty nice…
