This was a very popular snapshot (on Facebook) of the previous post/painting. Really, I barely can see my screen at the bright beach. I press a button and done. Funny how these lucky shots can be (unexpected) and so widely loved. Thanks! This is SSU13-2014, “Summer Parasols”, 24×30 cm | 9,5″x12″, oil/canvas.

Sometimes the time is right, the flow is right, the surroundings are just right. No harassment, no troubles. Those paintings and moments come to us as gifts. This is such a painting.

Catching the Light. The brilliance of it. Yes ‘takes a few tries’, understatement: (You know if you are a painter yourself). Happy how this one turned out. This is SSU12-2014, “Afternoon Light”, 24×30 cm | 9,5″x12″, oil/canvas. (sold)
Yes, I’m always on the lookout for a White one. Love those. For years this has been a returning theme in Summer. This time I wanted to let the chaos of color in the distance, stay chaos – painterly said. This is SSU11-2014, 24×30 cm | 9,5″x12″, oil/canvas.

Sometimes I really cannot think of a title. Or think of something original. As you can see this painting is quite complex. Having the afternoon light in, foreground action, the reflections, the perspective. My head got spinning from it, while painting it. This is SSU02-2014, 24×30 cm |9,5″x12″, oil/canvas. (sold)
Wonderful Summer! So much action. This is SSU05-2014-”Shallow Water Lifelyness”, 24×30 cm |9,5″x12″, oil/canvas. Available in my online store here. (http://artgalleryrose.com) The figures in the water move way faster than I’ve ever seen a cow do. Often the compo can not be set from the start. Exciting.
I’m sort of behind on showing you the new works. So I’ll post them these coming weeks. This is SSU04-2014-”Playing”, 24×30 cm |9,5″x12″, oil/canvas. Available in my online store here. (http://artgalleryrose.com) I experimented with lighter (blue) skies in the beginning of summer. They can be so dark in real life. Later I decided to paint them darker again, you’ll see the coming weeks. (Benefit: sand lights up more.)
One from the Noordwijk Festival. Was sold to a German couple, I think. People think I add in figures, waves, light or else without any pain, trouble or time. Mistaken they are. I think I’ve painted these figures about 5 times over. Maybe more. To get them right. I think the easiest way to paint is to do things again and again, scrape off start again, scape off start again. Fearless in your effort. You’ll end up with something strong.
A grey sky can be like a breathe of fresh air. This one you can view in an upcoming exhibit at Gallery Het Raadhuis in Eenrum.

Show is called “Dutch Skies”. in Dutch: “Hollandse Luchten” This is SSU08-2014-The-Sky, 24×30 cm | 9,5″x12″, oil/canvas (available at Galerie Het Raadhuis/Eenrum).
