We have a weak for Europe, so we undertook a few weeks of traveling through the major cities in 2008. This series of paintings is┬ábased on those travels, based┬ámostly on local sketches and drawings. Jessie can be found as the main figure in several of the paintings. ‘Naaldwijk’ in the Netherlands (one of the paintings) is the area Freek was born and raised in before moving to Canada.
