Everybody is shocked, also Tess, a model with who I work for a few months. On March 6, when she comes to my studio to work, she carries a protest board with her. After our session she is going to a demonstration against the war on the Dam.
On 24 Feb 2022 Putin launches his attack on Ukraine. I am shocked and in tears. I sympathise a lot with the Ukrainian people, who want freedom and democracy. I work with nice peaceful Russians in Amsterdam for a long time, who I love.
In the afternoon I paint a Ukrainian flag which I put in the window of my studio.
