Thanks to artist and guest Casey for sending us some of his work done aboard Veendam.
I’m Casey Hoke. I’m 16 years old and from Louisville, Kentucky. I just came back from sailing aboard the MS Veendam with my grandparents (and very well traveled HAL Mariners) from Boston to Quebec. I am a student artist with a passion for photography and painting watercolor landscapes. What better way than to spend my cruise time at the piano bar by a big window, painting the sights I saw in port? Here are some of my paintings I did aboard the MS Veendam. To those passengers and workers who stopped by to say hello and give me kind compliments while I painted, I truly appreciate it. Thank you. And thanks to Holland America for a spectacular cruise itinerary! The first painting is set in Peggy’s Cove. (Halifax, Nova Scotia). The second painting is set in Acadia (Bar Harbor, Maine).
