This Sunday, Sunday 27th I’ll be back at Artplein Spui Amsterdam. Second time this year and
the weather is going to be great!

Last time I didn’t have my frog prince yet and I’m definitely going to bring him this time.
You’re welcome to visit from 11:00 to 18:30 hours. Hope to see you there!

the wood and paper because the acidic properties of wood will destroy the paper.

Also read the very elaborate blogpost by Kelly McKernan on mounting paper onto panel.
Her post was a great help.
