A Waiting Room16 mei 2019
This painting is titled "A last Christmas gift". I made this work during the period between Christmas and New Year in 2002. I had no material available to paint on. Finally I decided to use the box of a christmas gift. I unfolded it and made this painting from it. When you look at the painting you can distinguish the different parts of the unfolded box. The painiting developed in one instance and I never changed anything to it again. This work is now decorating a waiting-rooms in my home town.
"A last Christmas gift", 2002, 60x140cm, approximately 24x55 inches.
Gathering (Samenzijn)9 mei 2019
A painting from a series that took shape in the last three months. These paintings are mostly red, a color I appreciate a lot. There is a lot of energy, and given the shape in this painting there is silence as well.
This painting is a total repaint of a former painting, that came with many colors and shapes. You can see some details from the former painting in the shadows shaped by some thick former layers as well.
A Minor Excitement6 mei 2019
Recently I've been making a series of paintings showing some other type of expression and maybe showing some extra freedom as well.
A Minor Excitement, 2019 (Dutch: Lichte Opwinding) is an example. It measures 100x120 centimeters (40x48 inch) and was painted on canvas.
3 stages10 oktober 2018
In this picture you find the three stages of one painting.
Actually, I think all three stages could have been a final painting basically.
One may argue that the painting above is somewhat dark or dreary. I suppose that was the reason to continue after this stage.
In the central painting the yellow shapes may have been to overwhelming or dominating. That might have been my reason to restart the proces of painting once more.
inally the painting below became the actual result.
As with a lot of my paintings you may rotate it for 90 or 180 degrees and still it can remain attractive to watch.
Current title: If You wanna destroy it - You will have to buy it
Size: 70 x 150 cm
Deepest Red4 mei 2017
When being Someone's Deepest red, 2017, 90x130 cm. (Picture Above)
A combined result from today starting with a former painting from 2012 (Being Abundant, picture below).
Being at a market with the painting from 2012 last sunday, it seemed the black forms were to dominant and a bit out of balance.
The balance certainly seems to be there right now with the adaptations from today.
However one may argue that today's result has a lot of undefined forms. Looking at it at it's real size however it seems fine and might be interesting for a very long time.
Preheated White Socks29 april 2017
Preheated White Socks, 100x120cm, 2017.
Another result in a pretty large series of mostly black, grey and white paintings.
Theater Posa: exhibition29 maart 2017
The exhibition at the "Theater Posa" will last until the 24th of april.
It's feels comfortable to show some paintings at this theatre, it being small and basic.
With this picture you can have an impression of three of the four painting shown there.
All paintings are 75x150cm and I have used a lot of green paint when making them. Green is most often a color I hardly use.
You can have a look at the paintings during performances and other hours of operation at the theatre.

Another24 maart 2017
This painting has been developed at the start of this week. Me being busy with some other things it stayed at the easel until this morning and as a result I was able to observe this painting for several days. It came to me as a positive result every time I saw it, never being entirely sure that it could be a final result.
This Painting doesn't have a title yet, 65x85 cm, 2017.

Why18 maart 2017
In relation to some of my paintings a recurring question may be: why hasn't this one been sold yet?
In most occasions when this question returns over and over again one or a few years later the painting often will really have been sold.
Where it comes to this painting from 2015 I must say that it was never part of an exhibition yet.
It would be nice if I could show it somewhere this year.
