When the lockdown started in March, I was in my studio on Texel. Everything suddenly came to a standstill, an enormous calm ensued.
When I walked to te sea and the dunes every day, I rarely saw people. Even on the beach there were no people, I was completely taken over by nature.
It seemed as if I had ended up in a virtual reality game, where all people had suddenly disappeared. There was a serene peace which was very beautiful and on the other hand felt very unreal because there were no people. Even the sea was calm and there was no wind.
This inspired me to paint art work 'Calm down.'
I wish everyone a nice summer & good health!
