Marijke Akkers-Kersten – 06-11-17
My mother and I visited the Mauritshuis at The Hague, Netherlands where she leaned over in order to look outside to the Hofvijver and I recognized a Vermeer painting in it: same lighting and lots of wooden framing around her. I liked to portray her because after all, she is my mother and a great model to put into my roundish style.
