Rachel and Wesley

It has been quite a while since I posted. Time for some new paintings.
I got a lovely commission to do of 2 young children. Rachel and Wesley. I'm glad the grandmother loved the portraits. She kindly gave me permission to post the portraits.

Elisabeth and Wendy

The last few weeks I was busy with some portraits. I made 4 but I'm allowed to post the ones of Elisabeth and Wendy. Mother and daughter.
I really enjoyed painting these. I was lucky to get some pictures with lovely lights on the faces. And natural light. Good pictures make it more enjoyable to paint .
I was happy to hear they loved the paintings. :-))

Acrylic, 50x70 cm.

De beweging van de zee                                                                                             
Het geluid van de golven
Ik kijk ernaar en luister
Tranen stromen over mijn wangen
Soms van verdriet
Maar ook van geluk
De wind blaast ze op het water
Golven nemen ze mee
Naar de diepte van de oceaan
Weg zijn alle zorgen
Ik kijk nog even naar
de prachtige ondergaande zon
en ga naar huis……… ontspannen.


The movement of the sea
The sound of the waves
I watch it and I hear it
Tears running down my cheeks
Sometimes of grief
But also of happiness
The wind blows them into the water
Waves take them
Into the depth of the ocean
Gone are all the sorrows
For a moment I watch
the beautiful sunset
and I’m going home..... relaxed.
