The Narrow Path

Walking in silence
between the shadows
of dreams to come

It is quiet in the forest. The dense foliage brings coolness in summer, the impressive trunks of old trees provide protection when the wind blows hard. Time for a walk on narrow paths, deeper and deeper into the forest.

Four - 4 separate prints The symbolism of the numbers 1 to 4, for me represents how all life evolves. Originated from a single cell, followed by the awareness of your environment (duality), the growth to adulthood and ultimately the stability that comes with wisdom.

In 2019 I dedicated this quadriptych to everyone who has to deal with dementia: the affected person, family and friends, practitioners and caregivers in residential communities and nursing homes.

Entangled In Sunlight - A warm day early in the summer, it is windless. The foliage filters the sunlight. Birds sing, but are invisible in the golden-green light. - Modern impressionistic digital artwork by Jacob Berghoef

Entangled In Sunlight

Branches entangled
Birds swallowed in sunlight
Even the leaves do not move
Fragrance of Summer

A warm day early in the summer, it is windless. The dense foliage filters the sunlight. Birds sing, but are invisible in the golden-green light.

For this artwork, I used one of my own impressionist photographs and fused it with a fragment of an abstract expressionist painting by the Canadian painter Jules D .

The Morning Sun Awakens The Tree Spirits - Abstract realistic fine art forestscape photography by Jacob Berghoef

The Morning Sun Awakens The Tree Spirits

The morning sun dances
from branch to branch,
whispering words of light
to awaken the spirits of the trees

Tree elves... There is certainly something special to see when you walk through a forest early in the morning...

Light Of My Thoughts

In the morning of my dream
only shadows will remain
echoing the light of my thoughts

'Light of my thoughts' is one of the photos in a four-part black and white project, in which I photographed tree lanes as a charcoal like sketch. And I admit: it's my personal favorite in this project :)

Unending Dream - Noon. No one around. I walk this path, deep into spring. An unending, green dream. - Abstract surrealistic landscape art, based on fine art photography by Jacob Berghoef

Unending Dream

Noon.
No one around.
I walk this path,
deep
into spring.
An unending,
green dream. 

A sunny, warm spring day. It is quiet in the forest, not a breath of wind, no one to be seen. As I walk deeper into the forest, the young greenery closes me off more and more from the busy world. I walk on slowly, as if in a dream....

Wandering Through The Night - In this clear night, the stars lean on the bare branches of the trees, and the moon lights the pillars along my path. - Impressionistic transformed photograph by Jacob Berghoef

Wandering Through The Night

A cold wind rustles through the frozen
         grass along the road.
In this clear night, the stars lean on the
         bare branches of the trees,
and the moon lights the pillars
         along my path.
If only my love will still be awake
         when I arrive late at home.

Light. Hidden 
behind a veil of silence

Celebrate a new day
Every day

Silent shadows

Emptiness calls,
whispers my name

Song Of The Leaves - Impressionistic fine art forestscape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Song Of The Leaves

In the autumn sun
Voices in the forest sing
In the rising haze

After many days of rain, the late afternoon sun shines almost horizontally through the damp forest. It is quiet, except for a soft rustling, a song of the last leaves of the trees…

Shelter for the cold

Shadows Of Dreams

Walking in silence
between the shadows
of dreams to come

A beautiful spring day, early in the morning. I walk on a path between the fields, it is quiet, except for some noise of the wind and a few birds. The morning sun dazzles me a bit, the dark sides of the trees slowly glide past me. It feels as if I am walking through an alley of dreams that fleetingly present themselves to me.
