The Eagle and the Seal

Work in progress

April 3, 2019

⎯   Falconry
I painted this painting "The Eagle and the Seal" a while ago.
The approach to the subject and the composition was a little tougher than the style I normally use.
For example, there is the vast mystical landscape and the eagle that claims almost the entire width of the painting and the seal in a traditional costume.
You can observe deer antlers, acorns, lights and a magic ball in the staff.

This painting is currently in my studio in Belgium.

New Art Gallery

⎯   Art Gallery Honingen

A painting that will soon be available in the gallery:
23 x 23 cm | Oil on panel


painting with a tiger

March 13, 2019

⎯   Just varnished!
"Explorers" | 30 x 60 cm, oil on panel.

This cheerful company goes on an adventure as explorers to new places.
Presumably it is an Eastern destination based on the Chinese lanterns. Or maybe they brought these lanterns from previous expeditions?
Here the story lies in the hands of the spectator, or her, fantasy...

In addition to the dynamic and humorous story, I also placed an extra layer in this painting.

The chimpanzee records the impressions during their expeditions with an imaginary device.
This data then ends up in a scientific book that the monkey has with him.
But as you can see, pages fly out of the book. This symbolizes the everlasting quest of humanity to approach everything scientifically.

Also the fact of the more you investigate, the more is added to investigate.

This painting is part of a private collection in The Netherlands.
