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!

DANCE OF LIFE

© Dance of Life, 22 x 30, Watercolor, St.Germain

NOTES
- Each generation has its own dance
-all connected, yet dancing our own individual dance
in our personal cave crystallized by time
- the past represented by the shadows 
are a part of the present!
- the rocks are a foundation, 
yet not static, but swimming
in a certain direction

I really connected with your painting and your words....the shadows that are part of the present, the foundations solid but not static, all of us moving forward. Thank you...

Chrisy,
Your kind of comments make my day! You understand that I'm not looking for a compliment, but that you're "getting" what I'm trying to say with the painting - thank YOU, friend:)

great picture and a perfect description. I wonder about the people that came before me all the time , they are my shadow...strangers yet always part of me.
