Some time ago I saw two horses when I walked across a small meadow. I was on my way to Museum Singer at Laren, Noord-Holland, Netherlands. It so happened that they were standing close to my favorite tree I painted years ago (Autumn Tree at Laren).
Based on a prestudy in pastel (Model – 01-12-18) I made this painting in oil. My objective was to stay in line with the fauvist colour kind of strokes (in case of the pastel they were pretty much ‘broken’ and ‘open’ strokes / patches) but also to get to a more abstract feel by means of rendering the model slighty cubistic.
A new one in the sans titre series depicting Gone with the Wind actress Vivian Leigh. I like her cool looking appearnce hiding a turmoil of complex emotions, wandering from depression, alcoholism to briljant actorship and back, ending in her death by tuberculosis.
The 26th of December 2017 I was attending a concert by the Symfonie Orkest Nijmegen in the Stevenskerk at Nijmegen, Gelderland, Netherlands.
Some time ago I saw a cloud that perfectly looked like a baby elephant.
These times call for a poet that says it all.
