July 26th: The temporary artists studio of Karin Bos and Erik Wuthrich is located in museum room 4 at the indoor part of the Zuiderzee Museum. The outdoor museum where their temporary house is located is also very nice. It's like walking through history.

The center of Enkhuizen is also filled with beautiful historical buildings.
After opening hours when all visitors are gone silence takes over at the outdoor museum. We are alone watching the dance of mosquitos in the sunlight.

Extreme crowded mosquito party, luckely they are all male, so they don't sting.
July 27th: Hurray, it is now official, Karin finished her first painting!
Karin Bos, De Peiling, oil on canvas, 40 x 50 cm, 2012.
Here's a sneak preview how it would look being part of the "Colour of Water" exhibition at the museum.
It combines very well with the watercolour "Safe Haven" in the show, so Karin is very pleased with herself.

July 28th: Erik starts to apply the Acrylic One to make his sculpture strong.
It looks a bit like cooking.
Cutting the glass fiber.
In the mean time Karin is framing her large watercolour.

Karin finished her second painting. It's oil on canvas, size 40 x 50 cm.

July 29th: Today some old friends dropped by to visit us at the museum which was a nice surprise.
Today was compliment-day; we had lots of visitors who were very enthousiastic.
Erik is applying the first layers of Acrylic One

The mouth of his fountain sculpture has to be firm and strong

The fiber is attached to the surface with a brush using raisin.
July 30th: Both artists work so hard that they forget to lunch.
Erik wants to apply three layers of Acrylic One today
In the mean time he is talking to some 300 visitors during the day.
What is it? No, Erik is not re-inventing the wheel, it is hanging on its side..

All right, now the visitors can imagine that it will be a fountain.
The museum room is so large that the artists have to shout: hey neighbour can I borrow your crepe tape? And then roll it over the floor. Otherwise they keep walking forever.
That tiny little man in the distance is Erik at work from Karins point of view.
