This is what you can do if you are in a hurry and have some failed prints. like the printer is not working properly. don't throw the paper away. would be a shame. paint in oil over the failure. doesn't matter what,but you could use what was on the print=the successful part. in this case the Christmas tree. leave that and fill in the rest. my left eye is also a light on the Christmas tree. enjoy painting. that is what it is about. and a Merry Christmas!

a Pendant

It must be around 25 years ago that I painted these two portraits. They look like a couple-a pendant, But they are not related. only in the time I painted them. I have forgotten their names and did not have the wisdom then to record the names and dates on the back of the linen. Maybe someone looking at Facebook could help me? thank you.

House in Noorden, S,. Holland

The busdriver changed his stop in Noorden to: "the house with the Heart". That was many years ago and Herman remains true to his tradition of mounting the heart every November onto the carefully trimmed Atlas Cedar tree his father planted 75 years ago. It is actually a welcoming sign for all year round.
