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!

-In Poland we drove by endless oceans
of yellow sunflowers
it was like being in a dream
- fairly easy to paint 
after accounting for all the petals! 
-wonder how an abstract 
with sunflowers would look like...
