Two of my revised Men in Blue. I love to just keep painting on these portraits in an attempt to make them more paintings with stories without loosing the white background and movement of paint. These two have to do with flying. The portrait I was working on (see Blog post 9\16\13) now has included this man's favorite hobby= butterflies. and the lower portrait has "gierzwaluwen" flying through. I always think of this Man in Blue when I see these beautiful birds darting through the air.
these portraits and more are in the show opening Sunday at 4 p.m. in "de Tuin-Zwammerdam". see www.waterlelies.nl for more information. but then you have to read Dutch.
