I am in a flow of painting flowering waterlilies in our bassins. good thing it grabbed me before the summer is over. The lower painting is still in process. I did it in and must go on to hopefully revive it.
Time to start giving attention to portrait painting. Here is one of my 25 x 25 cm. oil paintings on panel for the Hospice Group in Nieuwkoop. all the volunteers have been here to sit for a "conversation painting". I am very proud of the wall of portraits hanging in the house. The situation of talking with each other gives me such inspiration. I just let it roll.
"Early Summer Morning"" is the title of this study I painted while sitting in the boat. 35 X 52 cm., oil on canvas and very impressionistic. I am using it for the poster advertising the show opening on Monday. "Kunst in het Gemeentehuis, Teylersplein 1, 2441 LE Nieuwveen, S. Holland. It runs from 6 August until the 12th of September, 9 to 12 workdays. Lots of flower, landscape and a few portraits in this show. You are sincerely invited to come take a look.
