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 30, Oil, 


Okay with me if you don't believe in angels. You can still enjoy the painting:)
But to make my intent clear, this is an angel of music and worship unto God. 

- On top of the left sleeve are different kinds of flutes  
- on  upper right sleeve are paint brushes.
- included ballet slippers for dance and a banner or flag, for artists who do flag work. 
One time I saw a guy dressed in a white shirt and black pants 
in his twenties (?) handling 4 white shiny flags at once -it was pure artistry! 
- for the story on the flutes, 
go to main blog page at end of weekend January 14 (click on right side bar Mysteries)
