The lady with the scorpion on her head. I was born under the sign of Scorpio, sometimes 
I use the name Selket, the Egyptian Scorpion Goddess as my handle. 
I really like this one. Scorpions are very solitary creatures.

Hallo John!
Wauw, wat een talent! Super!
Het heeft me tevens doen inzien dat je beter één techniek goed kunt doen dan twintig 
tegenlijk....Dus, ik ga                    verder tekenen met je textieltjes!!
Warme groet, alle goeds voor 2009, jeanny

Your work is amazing. I truly enjoyed viewing it and listening to what it was saying.
My totum is the raven...I saw it once when I was meditating...the raven turned white,
then really left me speechless. Keep up the great work..

Hello John, What a wonderful website for the beginner as well as for others.
I am on the yahoo collage groups and looked through your website. "Being human is
helping each other". So true, and you give that positive feeling with your Children's gallery and 
awards. I loved it! Being a teacher and artist, you hear so much the "I can't's" instead of the 
"I see's" or "I will's". I used to tell my students both adult and kids- "You can if you think you can". 
One just has to 'see'. You hit it right on the head, and I hope many are inspired by your work 
and philosophy. I loved your free lessons too. It will inspire so many, as did your entire 
collection of work. Well done and truly magnificent! Kathryn

ha die john. Lang geleden sinds je handbalde bij SVOG
Ik heb nog steeds een van je eerste schilderijen.
Is geschilderd op board en het is een landschap in blauw en zwart.
Leeft je vader nog ? Zo ja heb je zijn adres ? Andre van Kemenade zou dit graag hebben.
Daar heb ik nog steeds contact mee. Fijn dat het je goed gaat

Nooit geweten dat er zoveel achter de John Baselmans zit die zo af en toe ook zijn mening
laat horen in de Amigoe.
By the way...als expert op het gebied van zonneenergie kan ik je vertellen dat de prijzen
voorlopig niet, naar een voor de normale man, betaalbaar niveau gaan zolang Multinationals
als Shell en BP de eigenaren blijven van de grootste PV-voltage fabrieken blijven !!!

How rare is it that I even browse the internet this time of night. I am lucky to have found your
site and am so excited to look through it! I to draw from my soul, charcoal and pencil mostly 
and have come up with some amazing prints that I can not explain. My goal is to learn how
to get to the next step which is to refine and print my art and make dutch birthday calanders
in honor of my late grandmother. Just from reading your homepage it seems like I may just 
get to learning this next step. We will see. Your work is Breathtaking!! "S" 

I am trying to draw 

Francisco Lorenzo
You style is unique and beautiful. I just started painting after more than 30 years 
as a photographer and looking at your work has taught me a lot. 

your art is amazing....I hope to learn more about portraiture.....have been doing them
since I was 12 years old but need to learn color. I will enjoy this sight and visit often! 
I was born in Holland, too!Best Wishes,

Hugh Jass

Subject: WOW!!!
John, I am new to the group and just looked at some of your work. Boy
was I impressed! I'm such an amatuer compared to you. I especially
liked The Gate and can tell that you are a spiritual being from your
work, also Iquana Man very cool! Wasit done in oil? You must sell
alot of paitings.

wonderful and curious. I tend to think the tool in the hands of one who is connected to the creative 
fire that births art, as the language generator of the soul and spirit, sometimes more than just the 
one holding it is involved in the process. 

Your work is in fact inspiring. I am learning to draw and am searching for my own
growing place in this world....thanks for the showing!
