Maartje Strik is one of my fellow artists at De Ploegh Artist's Association in Amersfoort.
Her work intrigues me, not only for the dreamlike subject matter, but also for her technique:
Besides in oil paint, Strik often works in pastels, creating beautiful glowing colors.
I really want to learn to use pastels too.
New work by Strik -and by me- is on sale at De Ploegh Gallery from January 8, when the famous Grafiekmanifestatie exhibition is held again.
