Dutch Scene
The subjects for my paintings turn up as clues, or sometimes as coincidences. My inspiration could be a few words overheard in a restaurant. I like to work on different motives... depends on what moves me at different junctures in my life. I have painted fruit, flowers, animals and landscapes, or my inspiration might be from Art history. My most recent things have been about 'a wolf in sheep's clothing' plus a self-portrait as a king burning his own image. I like to feel I adapt at whatever subject life throws at me... hopefully I can make something out of it all... thus enriching an ever-growing artistic life. People have said my work is mystical... or surreal... but my bent has remained the same since childhood... my pictures often contain a story... or a question unanswered. The world is, as Alice said, a very curious place.
