Ruurd Wiersma, the painting milkskipper

In the museum you see a splendid specimen of naive painting.
The retired milk skipper Ruurd Wiersma lived here, untill his demise on december 15th 1980. He changed his livingroom into a  large and colorfull panorama. Walls, Ceiling, furniture…… nothing in the house escaped from the paintbrusch of this driven amateur painter.

Ruurd Wiersma created about 300 paintings.
