Through the strong autumn wind I just returned from the frame shop with a watercolor Kites on the Beach'' under my arm when Cath came to my place for the model drawing session. She brought me a book which was coincidentally called 'Kite runner' by Khaled Hosseini. a novel about Afghanisthan

The watercolor shows a windy beach with tiny figures playing with kites under big masses of clouds floating in the blue sky. It brings back my memories of the island of Texel, where this scenerie was painted, and also gives the sense of light, space and freedom which one can experience while being in the middle of nature.
