A few days ago someone told me that a painting by my hand titled "Woman with hat" is going to be sold this month at auction house Korst & Van der Hoef in Den Bosch.
I could not remember what painting it was. Fortunately I could check an online cathalogue and there it was...

Of course I immediately recognized the little portrait I painted in 1980 of Rita who happened to be my girlfriend at that time. My relationship with her had not lasted very long. Mainly due to the fact that a gruesome experience in her past had caused an alcohol problem that appeared to be too serious for me to handle in the long run.

The painting is interesting not only because I painted it while being in love, but also because it is in fact the very first portrait I painted. And it was not bad at all.
