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!

ASCENT AND DESCENT

Ascent and Descent, 36 x 36 inch , oil, St.Germain

NOTES
- In one of my next posts (in next few weeks) on main blog MYSTERIES
read why I posted this painting....
Some interesting anecdotes surrounding the painting when it was  finished
- Design wise, the "ladder" (ascent and descent) started with an "X" 
with the angels displayed on the "X" with more of a loop.
- my take on angels is that they have different personalities, fitting with their task

Lovely brushwork suggests gentle flowing movement, I like the subtle faces too.

Southern Sass,
Glad you like it, friend! But I like to know more what you specifically like?

Diane,
Yeah, my sense is that they have a certain anonymous air about them... (that's why I left the faces impersonal)
