‘Bold and blue with red flowers’ was born out of stamps I designed. I love sturdy dessins. This dessin is based on our Dutch flag: red-white-blue.
There is also a version of this dessin with a black background.
The bird and the church, for me they seem like opposites from eachother. The bird representing freedom and the church representing strict rules and oppression.
But I am also atracted to churches, especially the old ones. Their many beautiful details, so carefully designed and crafted speak to me a lot. Like this churchdoor, that belongs to the Saint Pieterschurch in Leyden. I love the color of the door, the window above it and the posts around the door.
