Glass vase (2016)
A quick painting I made the morning before afternoon’s workshop ‘painting glass’.
papaya (2008) (sold)
A still life in which I tried to combine cubism and realism in such respect that the cubistic papaya would be looking realistic as well.
A surreastic oil painting with an ashtray and flowers as cigars. I liked painting the texture of fire so I had to come up with a dark negative space to sett off the light sufficiently.
Old and young pomegranate (2007) (sold)
One of the many oil paintings but few still lifes I made throughout the years.
In my ever struggle with still lifes I wanted to do a styled flower like a Strelizia and put it in a granate shell my grandfather retrieved from a German Flak position at Nijmegen during W.W. II and light it with a maclite mini torch from within the shell.
A rather expressionistic approach to a still life.
Fruits under arrest (2006) (sold)
A commissioned piece for a head of police.
Sub rosa (2007) (sold)
Twice it came back to me because of the partner of the purchaser didn’t agree with the vibrator. The third time was a charm.
Hot tin roof (2005)
A study after sunlight hitting a still life with extreme backlight, with hints of impressionism.
A quick study. I liked doing something simple and I arranged the objects in a triangular position. With only some faint color usage. I guess I was learning the trade of oil painting still, seeing this one after all these years.
