Piet Schaap started by drawing an old black and white historical photo in color, a minuscule work because the human figures on the photo were so tiny.
He also made separate paintings of the drawings of the reading board that he had made for the church twelve years ago. He was asked by some ladies from the church if he could make a Woerkums reading board that could be sold to the tourists during the church visit. Piet got fifteen Woerkum words, making the drawings. The board got the look of the reading board from 1910, but now with words from Woerkum. The first board was presented in 1996 to the then minister Hendriksen, minister of the Reformed Church in Woudrichem and that reading board was a great success. We are now working on a new edition (a picture of the board is placed next to this text).
Piet has also made a beautiful drawing in color of the Visbank, which used to be on the corner of Kerkstraat Molenstraat. Framed truly a gem. Now he is working on a drawing of the Gevangenpoort. The nice thing is that he draws people on these drawings, what he calls 'upholstery', that gives something lively to the drawing.
Piet has also casted the Woudrichem weapon three-dimensionally in the exact color as prescribed and received permission from the mayor to sell it.
But Piet has a lot more on his program and intends, for example, to draw school boards of Woerkum history.
