The light slowly fades away, not a sound to be heard The scent of the night arrives
A special calm comes over the evening when the sun begins to disappear behind the horizon and the light of the day fades away. Nature awaits the night. I love that quiet moment of the day and the scent that announces the coming of night.
'Scent Of The Night' is a photo in my collections 'Flat Lands' and 'Evening Falls'. I made it in a small nature reserve near the city of Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
A week ago I posted about "Fotopentrito" and "Fotopentriti". Two words the American panter Karina Mosser and I coined to describe our new collaboration in painting on a photograph.
For this post, I had quickly put together a triptych. It consisted of a painting by Karina, a photo of myself and a digital fusion between the two. The response on that triptych was so positive that I sat down to make it a real set of 3 artworks.
Here is the result, available as a triptych in any size. Besides that, the artworks are also for sale as three separate works, of course also in any size you desire. And of course available as limited edition artworks or as open edition prints.
On the left a painting by Karina, on the right a photo by me, in the middle a digital blend of the two.
The sun passes through a crystal sphere A rainbow escapes into darkness
In front of a small window in the west facade of our house, hangs a beautifully cut crystal ball of about 5 centimeters (2 inches) in diameter. And every sunny evening when the sun is low above the horizon and its rays pierce the sphere, a fascinating spectacle unfolds in our room. Dozens of tiny, elongated rainbows decorate the floor and walls as they slowly float along with the sun until it sets. I'm in love with this play of colors and I can't get enough of looking at the rainbow patches up close. And now I'm happy to let you enjoy them with me !
Available as Limited Edition artwork and as open edition prints, prices starting at € 50 / US$ 60, ask for a quote or contact me for a price.
Through my artworks I ask you to reflect for a moment on the nature around you, on the beautiful feeling that nature can evoke, on what we lose when we continue on the road of 'never enough'.
All day in the spring rain Wandering between the trees Birds sing a green song
Do you know the sound of green? Listen to the birds in the trees after the rain. Do you know the scent of green? Take a stroll through a wet spring forest.
Two weeks ago we spent a few days on the beautiful island of Langeland. On a rainy day we went to the northern half of the island. Right after a huge downpour, we walked into a dense forest that looked so fairytale-like, sensual and intensely green, it didn't seem real. Everything was green, the color, the scent, the sounds….
'Green Song' is a new artwork in my collection 'Secret Places'. I made this photo in the beautiful old forest near the town of Tranekær on the island of Langeland, Denmark.
A fellow artist told me about her way of working in an introductory conversation via the LinkedIn messenger. I wrote "if you have any ideas for collaboration sometime, let's hear it". And I totally meant that, because I love working with other artists.
That she would answer within two seconds "Oh, I already do !", I did not quite expect...
Tress.c (Visual Narrative Art) is a special artist. Using her own photography with edits in multiple layers, she creates artworks that tell a story. A visual story about the life of her daughter, who lives with "invisible" disabilities in the form of complex neurological disorders.
And now, as a beginning of our collaboration, she has created two artworks, using one of my photographs. The result is a powerful diptych representing the healing power of nature for her daughter. The power that calms her body, mind and spirit. Tress.c has chosen to create this diptych to show her daughter's innocence, her strength and that inner battle that shines brightly in her eyes. To show how she is fighting for her own life.
Here is the first artwork: Crying Pines. "Crying Pines", is full of light and calm, to show the victories, the peace in her daughter's heart and where she is facing the viewers, challenging them to look at her as a whole, not as a handicap.
Many, many times I have tried to make a photo in my style with my 'old' iPhone 4s. Especially early in the morning, when I walk the dog. Many hundreds of photos, and never there was one to my liking. Until, one beautiful morning, my movement of the phone was apparently quick and sure enough to successfully capture this flaming sunrise on dragon wings.
'On Dragon Wings' is a new artwork in my collection 'Wavy Fields'. I made it early in the morning while walking through the fields near my house.
