de nieuwe boswachter

The new ranger



16 January 2023

My dog 'Ravel' loves nothing more than walking through the autumn leaves.
That is how the idea arose to make this painting of 'The new ranger'.

I deliberately kept the focus on the main subject in order to create a strong depth effect.
The colorful hazy autumn colors are like a kaleidoscope around this funny French bulldog, antlers included.

Meanwhile in the studio



22 December 2022

At the moment I am in the good company of a Maine Coon cat.

This cat is at the center of the new painting 'Enchanted'.
The idea was to make a portrait immersed in Rembrandt atmosphere.

This dramatic lighting strongly emphasizes the three-dimensional shapes of the subject, the Maine Coon in this case.

Galerie Honingen in Gouda

Icarus



18 August 2022

All aboard!

Very soon this painting will sail to Galerie Honingen in Gouda, where it will participate in the 25th anniversary exhibition.



detail

This painting shows my vision of the mythological story of 'Icarus'.
As Icarus and Daedalus are held captive in Crete by King Minos, Daedalus devises a way to escape: he builds wings from a wooden framework, studded with feathers in a bow secured with wax.
Because the wax can melt, Daedalus warns Icarus not to fly too high and close to the sun, but not too low either, because the seawater would make the wings too heavy.

In his enthusiasm, however, Icarus becomes reckless; he flies too high to melt the wax and crashes into the Aegean Sea.
