Portrait of a lady with hat, ‘the will 2’

Newsletter 1

Dubai, October 2008

Dear All,

Promotion of my paintings will start!

Ronald Boonacker, dear friend and painter himself will be actively involved in the promotion of my oil paintings and silkscreens. Works will be promoted in The Netherlands and Internationally (for e.g. New York). I am very happy with the fact that he will dedicate some of his time to my project. Ronald is a well-known Dutch painter who has been active in the Dutch and International world of Art for many years now. You can read more about him and have a look at his works of art at www.ronaldboonacker.com

Recently the Dutch newspaper “ Financieel Dagblad” came with a special edition about art. Advertisement about my works has been done as you will find enclosed.

The Art Guide of Amsterdam (will be sold at musea and bookstores from October 2008 or you may order a copy by me) dedicated some pages to my works and curriculum in English and Dutch. The pages look beautiful so I hope for good respons!

At present we are printing silk-screens as a serie and is named Monaco Monte-Carlo Casino by day & by night. (You can have a look at the original oil paintings at my website in the bleu gallerie.) The process will take about 4 weeks. This will be a limited edition and will be signed. If you are interested to sign-in up-front you can contact me at http://www.deruiter-hooykaas.com/en/contact.php by using the contact form. The selling price for this set of 2 silk-screens will be 1.100,-- Euros. (Signing in before the 1 st of November will give a discount of 20% (880,-- Euros).

Most recent works I made in Dubai have a more local atmosphere and will be promoted by my agent in Dubai. More information will follow.

I hope you like to follow my progress as a painter and please share this website as proceeds will go to the Monique D. Hooykaas Trust mentioned at my website.

With my very best wishes from Dubai,

Margot de Ruiter-Hooykaas
