And so it came to be, that I was attending to a wine tasting, organized by Jan-Wieger Eikema of the Bourgognespecialist (Burgundy specialist).
My painting ‘The Restoration of Bettie Page’ heads for its final stage of completion. It just feels right to announce the birth of this painting by someone special and who else could do that better than High Priestess herself: Julia Filament?
A second prestudy for a commissioned piece, combining
symbolic shapes with my personal roundism style.

Of late I was busy painting ‘The Restoration of Bettie Page’ and since a month or so drawings do not sprout from my pencil that often. But sometimes you have to let the painting be for a day and return to drawing process.
December 25th for many people is a holiday. As to me, I just keep on drawing and this one I made this afternoon at my parent’s home. Just a quick intermezzo between painting sessions.
My regular model comes to visit me every month and this time I had the plan to put only two small LED light sources around her.
It so happened that I was instructing a knight on horseback to prance in front of me so I could do a live painting on him, then all of a sudden this beautiful maiden was ruling us both.
Sometimes I find a model so perfectly shaped in round forms that the only way to add value is by means of recreating her through squares and straight lines.
Through my last drawing ‘Roundism – 19-10-19’ I got inspired to delve into the contrast of realism versus roundism again.
