This oil painting is based on my drawing ‘Nude – 17-06-15’. An artist often sees one thing in another. Salvador Dali saw a rhinoceros in Vermeer’s Lacemaker. I saw a horse in a women’s thigh.

A pastel of a treescape at Royal estate ‘De Horsten’ at Wassenaar, Netherlands.

During my lessons as a teacher I stell my students there is no end to perfection and one never can tell when a painting or drawing is finished.
A quick painting I made the morning before afternoon’s workshop ‘painting glass’.
This one is based on the swimming pool full of optical illusions at Museum ‘Voorlinden’ at Wassenaar, The Netherlands.
