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!

I saw her and I had to paint her
for I gazed and was taken up in a dream
of vivid colors, 
roselike petals 
and dreamcatchers' feathers

-more detail than usual 
to make sure this dream stays with me 
till I'm ready to catch the wind 
and the clouds form another dream
