Into Shape

Okay Mats is big but 8 kilos!? He needs to get in shape. And so do Nim and I.

So we bought them a cat wheel. Too bad the wheel is too small for me :)

Museum Visit


Yesterday we visited the Jakob Smits Museum.
A fortnight ago I bought two prints from Dirk Baksteen at the charity shop.
I did some research on the internet and that's when I got hooked :)

Jacob Smits was his teacher, friend and almost a second father to him.
According to the website the museum should have some work from Dirk Baksteen as well.
At first we saw a lot of work from Jakob Smits...

Christus en de overspelige vrouw 1923 - Jacob Smits

Landschap 1924 - Jacob Smits

My favourite work: Moeder met het geitje - Jacob Smits 


And some other works from the Molse School...

Witzandwinning "La Molloise" - Gaston De Biemme 

 Het gesprek (windmolen) 1928 - Dirk Baksteen

Sadly enough there was only one work of Dirk Baksteen we could find in the museum.

Chapeau for the lady in the museum! She made our day.
After I told her we were kind of hoping to see more work of Dirk Baksteen,
she told us after repainting the walls almost all of his work was in depot now.
But she was willing to go and get a box and show us some of his works. Yes!


While sitting on our knees, we saw some beautiful etchings.
