Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

To all of you a fine Christmas and a healthy New Year, may all your wishes come through.

This is a scene just around the corner of my street. Schalsum a little village with 250 inhabitants.

Green movement

This is also oil on linnen and at first only yellow and blue and white to mix. for more impact I added red. Some called it a slice of melon and that's nice if another sees something in an abstract painting.

When I put it on the cabinet behind the gourd, I started to like it.

oil, 40x50 cm.


I had a white canvas in front of me and didn't know what to put on it. So I just started with the smal dark part and worked my way around until it was a pleasing composition with movement to me.
40x50 cm, oil


I actually was painting a sky here, but when I turned it around I saw parts of a ship and a sail.
I developed the painting further as an abstract boat.

Acrylic on canvas, 50x70 cm.


I still continue with abstract paintings as well as watercolours.
The abstract painting is good for my mind.
It almost feels like a meditation if I worked on one for a few hours.
I'm still unsure about the title, but the colours in this one give me peace, while there is still movement in the painting.

Fungi crowd

After the workshop with Trevor Waugh I knew how to finish this painting.
A dark background so the mushrooms pop forward.
Half a sheet Arches.
