Some neighbors commissioned me to do a painting of the place they visited on their honeymoon, "Kasteel Wittem" in the Netherlands. The husband gave my picture to his wife on their anniversary. This castle isn't very big but it has been extensively restored and is run as a setting for weddings, honeymoons, and other romantic festivities. I depicted the couple in Renaissance garb standing by their castle. If you look closely (clickonthepic) you can see two black swans on the moat.
Watercolor on illustration board, 14" x 11", April 1995.
Note to readers: The By-Product will be on hold during next week as I am going up to the old homestead for a family care visit.
