In Wim Hofman's garden, Vlissingen

I'm painting an India ink scratchboard of Wim Hofman's garden, in Vlissingen, right after the summer solstice. Wim handed me a white gessoed scratchboard, and india ink. It was revolutionary to work with a white surface and add shadow and wash. Completely changed my relationship to the medium.

Wim, A circle of time. What year was it? Was it 1994, 95 or 96?
It could've been 1996 in that the great California floods were 1996-97. Ashablift.

Wim Hofman  I shall try to find it out. I have photo albums and also some copies of letters ( may be). But those things are in cupboards and albums upstairs (somewhere). Or my son knows it perhaps.  
And with Frederik from Sweden and and Monica from the U.S.A. Photograph taken by Maarten Hofman. (Who now works at Google.)

Wim Hofman's Garden, Vlissingen, Nederlands 1994 or 95 or 96. But I'm not sure. Maybe Wim remembers. Approx 6 x 12" India ink on scratchboard.
