Landscapes

As an oil-painter traditional themes like still-life, landscape, portrait and nude form a central part in my work. I prefer to work on my self prepared masonite or sometimes metal, because I dislike the softness and texture of linen.
Most landscapes I have painted in the nearby north western surrounding of my hometown Leeuwarden, Fryslân in the Netherlands, called Het Bildt.
There I like the typical openness of the Friesian landscape; The harmonious flat, almost abstract boundaries of air, land, and seawater.
A good excuse for me to leave my studio.
