De Hofvijver – 20-03-20

A unique situation: everybody all around the world at home and as to me: I got nothing to do except for painting and sketching but hey that is what we artists do all the time. So I do not feel like in a lock-down, even though all dinner parties and drinks with friends are postponed. Now you feel what artists feel!


Busy during the daytime with my new Frida Kahlo painting I fill the evenings with drawing. I browsed through my reference pictures and I remember saving this one I took of De Hofvijver (The Court’s Pond) at The Hague. I liked doing an impressionistic one again, keeping a rather rough edge.


I put a simple philosophy down for you: Light is life, a virus only survives in the dark. Light is creation and is contrary to all things obscure. Light is life and I hope the luminescence in this one is conducive to the evaporation of the Corona shadow.
