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!

© 24 x 24 Oil, St. Germain
SOLD- but still available in Print  
(different sizes in smooth art paper or canvas) 

I had this face in mind for weeks,
taking up my whole visual field
now finally I got to paint it:
the face of passion
coming out of nowhere
the expression of fire 
to make symbolic images
