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!

Usually I do watercolors in the summer
in my vacation,
but this view was too tempting to pass up this Spring

Done in my Arches sketchbook I recently found
it's my favorite paper cold pressed 140 lb.

this is a side view of this hill,
planning to paint a top view in pastel

My watercolor interpretation above
is of this hill
