  1. ...The beginning of anorexic models?

  2. Hello Rob,
    Great blog, I like the way you don't limit yourself to one topic or another.

  3. What an unusual painting. It seems to have an almost photographic quality. I’m going to Madrid next month so I must remember to visit this museum.

  4. Thank you Jonathan!

    @Little Nell: Madrid is a very vivid city. There a a lot of nice squares and parcs. For instance the parc next to the Royal Palace where you can sit and peddle your feet in a basin of water is a good idea, I wish we had more like these in Amersfoort.
