New Years Fire

Every year we have a fire in one of the streets nearby.
It burns from the last night of the year till the early morning of Januari 1st.
All night there are neighbours around the fire, good wishes, talking, a drink and something to eat once in a while.
I didn't go this year, but Tom did..............he was home at 6 am.

I first made a background, just fantasy, when the painting stood here on the easel, the colours remind me of a photo of 2 years ago. I used only a part of the photo, just the figures.
Oil on linnen, 50x70 cm.


  1. Very imaginative and mysterious too.

  2. Thank you Tim and Jean for taking the time to make a comment. It's much appreciated :-))
