This header is a pastel painting I did in 2009 is of a place in the Netherlands, my country of origin, after a photo shot by Dick Witte.

Some of the painters who have influenced me:
Mondriaan, Hopper
O"Keefe, Weyeth
Singer Sargent
van Gogh, Rembrandt
Picasso, Escher

Since this is my second blog page, it generally takes me longer (sometimes very long) to reply to your comments, but I do read and love them!

FADING INTO THE NEW YEAR



© Oil, 24 x 30, Tsunami. St.Germain

Overwhelming overpowering waves
wiping villages away from the map
water 
- force of life
- force of death

my cousin was supposed to be there
on her honeymoon,
last minute decided to go to Egypt
that week I painted this, 
being a Sunday painter*

*Referring to my blog post Sunday painter on my main blog.

You really have a very sophisticated blog site...takes lots of imagination and work to put it together. The birds as well as the Tsunami paintings again reminds me of the Van Gogh on you.
