The index sheet of a calendar for 2020. 12 black cats for 12 months. – Are you superstitious?- It started with the infinitely sad departure of my childhood tv hero Aart Staartjes. He crashed his scoot mobile at the age of 81. Calendar available on Amazon
My childhood tv hero Aart Staartjes. He crashed his scoot mobile at the age of 81. I saw him in a cafe last year, he was sitting across the table having a jenever. He had a twinkle in his eye, he looked good.
The painting was done in a tv show competition between 3 portrait painters. This is the winner, the image Aart thought reflected him best. He loved it.
Kim van den Enden is the artist. He sat live before her.
