A portrait sold to a very special person

The exhibition ‘ROOD’ (=red), organized in Café Eijlders by Atelier Open, is finished. I feel tremendously honored that ‘Ron’, the portrait I especially made for this exhibition, at this location, of Ronald M. Offerman, poet and painter, bartender in the café for many years – he often performed and exhibited there – my beloved friend and colleague, was sold to his dear widow (Ron passed away in May 2020, due to the effects of Covid 19 ), Mieke Bolte.


  1. Dear Maartje,

    Congratulations on selling this meaningful portrait to the right person! Your art work is so pure.

    Liefs, Dana
