The high waves and play of wind and water keeps fascinating me. Continuous motion, sound, threatening and loving all in one, hypnoticing.
Little by little completing a serie of works on the reflection in the ocean water. The coloured rocks under the surface, seen trough the moving water and the light higlichting it. Those patterns keep fascinating me and tell me different stories again and again.
I haven't updated my latest paintings for a while. They are all inspired on the water reflecting light and showing shimmers of the coloured life under the surface.
After the first you tube link with foto's from Stefan giving a first impression of the island. Here a second one showing the beauty of the wide sights, the clouds, the winterlight during our common explorations. Although the word winter is so different in meaning here then it is in our northern countries.
I very much appreciate his connection with the qualities of air and sky which for me stay often much more abstract. The difference between us, my melting together with what I see and love and his capacity to look from a distance and give things space. Different but very complementory ways of being.
The moss on the rocks almost has the same delicacy as my favorite photo of the tide pools and the fine glimmering lifeforms just under the surface of the water.
Exploring the island together with Stefan, while looking for the place which was so beautifully sunny yesterday we found a beauty from a completely different quality.
Stefan did make a slide show of our different trips to this special pristine forest,
This is a you tube link with foto's from Stefan who is staying with me now. It is very nice to be here together.
Did make some small size paintings with ink and plant pigments in egg tempera. The size is 18 x 24 cm. only. Yet it takes almost as much time to make them, as bigger size paintings. I did frame them and they are ready to be shown in a next exhibition in te middle of December here in "The Fundation Cultural Canaria, in Frontera. A more formal announcement will follow soon.
