It so happened that I was instructing a knight on horseback to prance in front of me so I could do a live painting on him, then all of a sudden this beautiful maiden was ruling us both. It was obvious to me Tristan & Isolde had entered the scene and the only thing I could do was to commemorate their eternal love. Lucky for me, they appeared in front of my eyes at ‘Het Valkhof’, the old castle site at Nijmegen, Netherlands.
