A buyer of greeting cards from the ColourFlux Shop wanted a larger version of the illustrations of birds with nests for on the wall. After a little check to see if the illustrations were suitable for printing in larger size, I went right to work with them. I was able to make two nice framed prints of the dunnock and chiffchaff with nest.
Overview hiking trails in the Green Heart
In September 2021, I completed the last hike from the booklet Green Heart trails of the ANWB. This booklet contains 43 round trails in the Green Heart region in the Netherlands. The booklet is no longer for sale and the hexagonal ANWB trail markings are outdated or no longer present everywhere, but the trails can still be hiked and found here and there on the internet. Therefore, I created an overview of where you can find these trails online. I also describe a top 5 of favourite hiking trails from this booklet.
Hiking in the Green Heart: Braassem trail – ⭐⭐⭐
After having hiked from A to B many times (or back to A), I am now in the mood for a round trip. I still have four trails open from the booklet Hiking in the Green Heart. I choose the Braassem trail near Roelofarendsveen and Rijnsaterwoude in the Netherlands.
Migration birds trail: from Zaanse Schans to Den Ilp – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
After a two-month break, I continued with the long-distance trail the Trekvogelpad (Migration birds trail) at the end of February 2021. Via a small detour through Zaanse Schans, I pick up the official trail just outside Wormer. After this I follow the trail through the Engewormer polder, the Jagersveld and the Oostzanerveld to the Twiske nature reserve and recreational area. Halfway through the Twiske, I stop my hike and take the bus back home from Den Ilp.

This illustration of a vase with an autumn bouquet was a commission assignment. It is my very own design. I think it turned out to be a nice illustration, in which I have applied my own illustration style.
