Suidafrika

2019 calendar Heleen van Lynden

Liewe Heleen,
baie, baie dankie! Ek sal jou skryf en vertel hoe sy (moeder, red.) van die kalendaar hou – ek is seker sy sal dit baie lief hê, want die strand in Durban in Suidafrika, waar sy lang gebly het, lyk baie soos op jou skilderye, en sy verlang nog altyd baie na Suidafrika … En ek weet sy hou baie van jou manier om te skilder – met so veel lig en beweging!
Liewe groete in Afrikaans :-)

Beste Heleen,

Het schilderij is net per post gearriveerd. We zijn er heel erg blij mee. De lijst is ook fantastisch en de kleuren passen goed bij het schilderij. Morgen gaan we het ophangen!

Dank voor het prachtige schilderij en lijst en natuurlijk de snelle service! Wie weet ontmoeten we elkaar nog eens.

Vriendelijke groet, Y.T en V.H

Dear Heleen,
Thank you for your mail and photo attached of the frame. It looks very nice to us, as far as we can see that on the photo. The painting itself was in real also still more beautiful than on phote, so we have all confidence.

If you like to send it to us, that’s all right with us.
So far thank you!
best wishes, Y.T and V.H.

Gift for my son

‘Heleen van Lynden, the artist who made this piece, is a niece of mine. I visited the Gallery  to see her collection. This piece of work is a present for my son. He is fond of kiteserfing, and I think it is very special to give him as a present an artpiece from a familymember.”

Genieten

Some time ago, I visited the Singer Museum in Laren. Aside from the exhibition itself, a series of self-portraits adorned the walls. One struck me in particular; it had a very specific style and use of colour. It wasn’t till half a year later that I found out it was actually Heleen’s. Her style had already made a deep impression on me then and there. Our first painting was a View over Muiderberg, overlooking the beach and harbour.  

The scene is of a late September day, where the bluest of skies are the backdrop for children playing happily in the sand. It was exactly what we described to Heleen and we were instantly taken by it. The painting often made us head out for a walk, just to see what the beach would be looking like that day. Now that we are no longer Muiderberg-inhabitants, we’ve ‘filled the void’ by acquiring another painting, a View over the Muiderberg waterline, depicting our much beloved Zeemeeuw. Her painting style made me so curious that I decided to take lessons at Heleen’s atelier. I loved it; the entire process of painting, of translating the image in your brain to paint on a canvas, is such a brilliant challenge. She always knew exactly what it was I was struggling with and showed me the next step to get through the maze. Our most recent assignment was a View of Vlieland, a gift for my parents. It holds all the elements we love so much about the island; the golden greens of the grasses along the salty shores, the ships anchoring on the shallows, the harbour and the ferry boat. My parents loved it because it tells the story we love so much. As do the other paintings we have of Heleen’s. We hope to enjoy them for years to come.

Hi Heleen,
Last week my daughter visited me in Dubai and got for her birthday the small painting that I purchased befor in the Hage. She was so happy with it!
The little painting you hold for me behind, is for my other daughter. She gets it next year for her birthday. I look forward already to her reaction!
Soon as I am in the Netherlands, I hope to meet so that I can collect the painting. Thanks that you will hold it apart. And have fun in painting!
kindest regards, Inge d J.

Dear Mrs van Lynden

Today we bought in the Hague (carré galerie in de Passage) a special painting from your hand (van 100×100) which make us very happy. We wondered if you could point out where you have painted itor is it a fantasylandscape? We like to hear from you.

kind regards

My favourite Zeeland

This weekend I painted on the beach in Domburg. The weather is changing all the time, from very windy and rainy to blue sky and high temperatures. Nice for painting, but I chose this time for the warm and sunny day on the beach. A painter must pamper herself now and then!

It is not bad being a painter ;)
