Covered with nylon tulle

Leave a comment

This portrait of childactress Shirley Temple was one of my first classic Hollywood subjects I’ve made. It’s also inspired by the blurrie works of Gerhard Richter. But finished it was never a work that was close enough to me. After selling work that I’ve wrapped in plastic I’ve discovered that it had always an interesting look. There was always a nice realistic touch left, but mostly to much lost of the original paintingskin. So I went to the vitragestore searching for the right translucent effect. Finallly here it is, my first painting “wrapped” in nylon tulle. Ofcourse I’ve still lost some of the look of the paintskin and brucestrokes but the result is a so very interesting and unusual realistic, almost 3d look, that it’s worth it. I’ve covered several works with it but only the strong servive. It’s hard to get it right photographed but I’ll hope this will do.

Plafondschildering Tandartspraktijk

Leave a comment

Een mooie afleiding tijdens een bezoek aan de tandarts kan zijn een fraaie plafondschildering. Ideaal zijn deze systeemplafonds, panelen van 60x60cm.  Ik kan de panelen in mijn atelier in alle rust klaarmaken. Hieronder enkele voorbeelden van Tandartspraktijk Stadshagen Zwolle.

Abstract (DSC 00341)

Woest de baren
die slaan op het land,
golfbrekers ontmantelen,
ontwortelen uit los zand.

Onvermoeibaar fors
en wild woelt het water;
lak aan ’s mens vastheid
zal land tot zee maken.






’t Was bij Lennox
in een afgelegen gehucht,
‒onze auto ging daar stuk
bij schemering‒ Lennox
ons geluk.

Vele uren later
stonden we weer op straat,
platzak, ‒Lennox had ons geld
en wij zagen niet meer helder.

Het licht ging langzaam uit,
alle kleuren verdwenen.
