The figures on my painting are watching the famous painting 'Ophelia' by Millais now on view at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. For those that have never heard of Ophelia, she is a character from Shakespeares play Hamlet. She becomes insane after Hamlet murdered her father and by him leaving her. Ophelia finally kills herself by drowning. Fortunately the people on my painting don't have to go through all of that. They're close together enjoying the painting.

kind regards, Gerard Boersma
