Painting by Anne - 2015 - In the beginning of the 60s we moved from Amsterdam to a small rural village. Aside from the medieval castle, the park, the harbour and a few 16th century buildings the village consisted of farmhouses and a few blocks of functional and sober post WWII houses. As a kid I was easily and heavily influenced by materials, smells; the overall character of buldings. 'Sick building syndrome' before the word was invented. The street, grandma, the rain. Welcome to 1962.
