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!

- This Oil painting is part of my Celebrity Collection of 15 flowers   
that I painted a few years ago. 
- All flowers are painted on a 24 x 24 canvas.
- Believe it or not, I spent most time painting on the leaves, 
so they would not look stiff or formal.
- Since the Netherlands are going to face their final game 
in the world cup soccer this week,
I'll give Holland three cheers with these tulips!
