The Dutch Connection

Coming up soon...

I will be visiting the Van Beek Art Supply stores in Holland, and giving demonstrations of Tri-Art paint and talking about my books.  Very exciting! I'm looking forward to visiting Amsterdam again, as it has been many years, and eating some fine Indonesian cuisine while there!

The Van Beek stores are enthusiastic supporters of Tri-Art materials, and as well stock my books in the Dutch translation.  Click the pages towards the back of the newsletter for details.

Demo dates:

Eindhoven: October 1, 2010, 2-5pm
Rotterdam: October 2, 2010, 2-5pm
Amsterdam: October 5, 2010, 2-5pm

Tongue Twister

You know what's tough? Giving an informative and hopefully inspiring demo/lecture in French! Whew.  I have not done that for a while, and it is quite the brain drain.  Sure, my first language is French, but I stopped going to French school after third grade, and switched to speaking English at home when I was 9.  My French is basically limited to third grade vocab, and the kinds of phrases used when talking to my uncles about fishing, and my grandmother about her garden.  I think I need to brush up on my technical jargon before I attempt to do this again! 

Thank you to the wonderful people at Encadrement Des Cedres, and the patient artists at the Festival de Peinture a Mascouche
