"SUNNY WALK IN CORNELIS SCHUYTSTRAAT"

September 30, 2017

The houses of this special shopping street in the old south part of Amsterdam are from around 1900. During the years the Cornelis Schuytstraat has become a true busy street. But from time to time there are peaceful moments which invite some people to take a sunny walk in the middle of the street. Like in 1900.

COFFEE & LUNCH, SURROUNDED BY COLORFUL ART

September 26, 2017

A good coffee or lunch and - as of today - a nice opportunity to see a selection of my work in a special place in Amsterdam South. So for coming months, just stop by at Valerius, Banstraat 14.

"UNOBSTRUCTED VIEW"

September 15, 2017

Because in the end, we all need unobstructed views so now and then. Like this special one on Corn Hill Road, Truro, Cape Cod USA. Nice to know, a few miles from the house of Edward Hopper, America's foremost artist of the 20th century.

"THE DIVING BOARD"

July 11, 2017

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.

NOSYBIRDS PERSPECTIVE "RESET"

May 19, 2017

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".
