PAINTING FOR ANOUK!!
At the beginning of March this year, the manager of Anouk (THE rock star of the Netherlands who is also very well known internationally) approached me, to ask me if I was interested in painting a portrait of Anouk. This painting would become the cover of her new album, a huge honor! It was both a challenge and a FANTASTIC assignment! When I showed Anouk the result, she immediately loved it, which made me extremely happy! The album was scheduled to be released in November, so I had to keep my mouth firmly shut!!
But now it is out in the open! Last Wednesday, Anouk herself revealed the cover on her Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The international media immediately spread the news. I am completely overwhelmed by the wonderful reactions that Anouk, as well as I, have been receiving ever since. About half of the original painting (90x150x4 cm) is shown on the cover. A special scan of the artwork will be made, which will be available as a Limited Edition Fine Art Print in 2 sizes. As soon as I receive the prices, I will announce this, so you can pre-order if you are interested!.
