I just found this website that has some photos of paintings and drawings by my great, great Aunt, Tineke (Ties) Schaap-Stuurman (1918 - 2001). She was Dutch and had an artistic family. I only met her when I was a toddler so I don't remember her, but apparently she thought I was quite a joker even as a 3 year old.
The funny thing is that there's a strong similarity between her style and mine. We have some of her original art, but I never tried to emulate her style or anything. There must be some genetic component to the way we make brushstrokes and use paint. Or maybe it's how we see the world which determines how we paint it. I'm not sure, but it's very interesting to see and contemplate.
I wish I could have spoken with her about painting to see if we shared similar thoughts. It looks like she worked en plein air also. The photos of her on the site were taken by a Dutch photographer, which is also cool.
You can click on the image below to go directly to the site for more information. It's all in Dutch, but there's information about each of the artworks.
