ancient death metal

There was a lady who let me know that she had two crosses for me. When I went to visit her she turned out to be a creative person herself living in an old house in the country. At the same moment her son, a musician, was paying her a visit with his family, Such friendly and quiet people. They gave me two crosses made by her late husband.

Home again I was interested to know what kind of music her son is into. He indicated that I might not like it. Here is the link to his band:…

"The Studio" Advertising 1901

A big second handbookshop was taken over by another bookshop here in the city and all the second hand books were sold for €1 a piece. I bought The Studio from 1901 "Modern British Domestic Architecture and Decoration". There is a supplement with advertisments: wallpapers, lead lights, stained glass, designers and manufacturers of fittings for electric light, art-metal-work. Beautiful drawings, very eleborate, totally different from today.

Excellence, workmanship, cheapness were words…

We need to practise.

I knew something like this about the colours because I read Rudolf Steiner describing…

In the meantime I keep painting, so I want to show you my newest work, because this is what a blog is for, isn't it?

I try to make images in which you can stare and start to find a world you haven't seen like that in "reality" before. But you do recognize things. The longer you look at it the more you see (I hope). I see a pont and all kind of figures. They just…

There was an article on me in the paper half a year ago: in an interview I asked readers to let me know if they had a crucifix they didn't want to have anymore and also maybe didn't want to throw away either. So, I got many responses, so many that now I have boxes full of them in my tiny workspace. Most of them are pre World War II and these objects have gone through very rough times, I think.

My goal is to  loosen the traditional image by respectfully placing them in a different…

new beginning on blog post

Hi, this is not something I am good at, but I am going to try again. I saw someone leaving this group because she finds it too difficult to write in English. Hmm, I feel quite the same. But I will try anyway.

I started a new project half a year ago: Still Life with Passion. I will share my most recent photo with you:…
