I wanted to create a painting which shows the original look and feel of a high diving board. My subject is a lonely swimming pool, mountains on the horizon and an intense sky. And silence. The excitement of the first time, standing together on a diving board. Waiting to jump and experiencing the immense hight above the water. But not only that. At the same time, the diving board opens as a beautiful vantage point. Where you can see and feel the movement of the environment in an intense way.

When everything around us accelerates, just step back and take a closer look what is really going on. We hardly understand the almost invisible day to day changes, let alone the enormous big issue. Often we take notice for a few minutes, but we keep on walking at our own pace. We stay in our comfortable boxes. And often we don’t or hardly react. Why not?

Only taking a short notice seems not enough. Some people start to think, look outside their boxes and try to understand what is changing and what it will really mean for them. Actually, they simply like to find out how they can (bene)fit in the future and start to focus and absorb what they see. They become connected. And become one with their colorful changing environment. That’s where a natural and true reset starts. As a matter of fact, we don’t stay the same our whole life. That would be a waste. "RESET".

Big cities like Amsterdam are generally warmer than their surrounding rural areas. The impact of the numerous urban factors on its temperature is called the “Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect”. It is clear that this “Urban Heat Island” effect for Amsterdam will change, because the climate changes and as a result of further urban development. There are projections of this climate change and urban development in 2040 and they indicate that the “UHI effect” in Amsterdam may strongly increase. 

In other words, Amsterdam will be extra warm. Something we have to take into account.

Monday September 5th 2016 is a perfect example of the soaring temperatures in that month. Europe broke serious records on that point. Some examples... An intense heat wave occurred in the Iberian Peninsula with a site in Spain, Sanlucar La Mayor, measuring 46.4°C (115.5°F). Portugal broke its September monthly heat record with 45.0°C (113.0°F) at Lousa Airport on September 6th. On top of that, September 2016 was the warmest September in 136 years of modern record-keeping, according to a monthly analysis of global temperatures by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York. Lots of inspiration to create this animated Weathermap of Europe.

This new painting “The Amsterdam Dog Ear” shows surprising contrast. In time and shapes. The sharp, triangular and up to seven meters towering clean grass slope from landscape architect Sven-Ingvar Andersson (from 2000) is called the “Dog Ear” (Ezelsoor). This raised ground level lies in the corner of the “Museumplein”. Behind, you see the houses with the well-known Amsterdam facades (from 1800-1900). Actually, they are just next to the famous Concert Hall and only a few meters from "The Dog Ear”. Seen from a certain perspective, it brings this unusual and colorful composition. Big changes in style really entertains.
