Amazing Easter Dotpainting

Easter was a busy time for me, alltogether 6 services in homes for the aged and in churches both here in Enschede and in Oldenzaal. I sat down after the last service on Easter Monday and wanted to paint something. It came to my mind that it was a good time to reflect on the Easter story just by myself and so I took the canvas and painted according to the Aboriginal technique of painting, a so-called dotpainting.
