CURACAO HOUSE The Hague, but first Bonaire

I've come to this end September '17 exposing my life time Monographs of past paintings to re-present myself as Artist of 38 years practising. And as new Author I had to make sure a copy was given to the Plenipotentiary Minister Begina representing Curacao at Curacao House ( their fine dedicated  interior building I'll never forget) in The Hague. Because this was my first intention after which book came out in 2016 at AuthorsHouse in UK and US.(online purchase or the Artist at atenholt002@gmail.com). Satisfied on realized Grant for publishing by Prins Bernhard Fund and finally stepping in my low budgeting bold shoes I decided to start a Project Travel Launch Campaign.

But first, before this Netherlandisch-adventure, I thought to have some peeling to do in Bonaire and clear space and give on commission, engrave a sign I deserved since 1987 for a name at the designs of Coral Flamingoes in Main Town. With Low Budegeting I went where my fellow artist Adi Figaroa was funded through Foundation Bondrigo to the goal on engraving design in Copper plate.  We organized with Bonaire Tourist Board in Kaya Grandi ( they gave us space, wine and cheese) for Group Exhibit and honored outside the walking sides with Flamingo Corals. Other long time Artist was Guno Gerling Surinam Batik Artist together with Adi Figaroa Painter and Installation Artist and me. We thought to bring in Upcoming Artists together with us and so we did. There were exciting moments to live on forever in memories.
