When i painted this butterfly the title 'Angel Dust' came instantly to mind. Don't know why. Maybe because of the beauty of the angelic color blue or because of the fragile yet strong wings. But when i looked it up, the word 'Angel Dust' has quite a bad association. It's the name of a violent and nasty halucinating street drug. So i hesitated of course, but hey perhaps it is time that this title regains it's positive intention...

This is Zoef, a male dog, 48 cm high, and about 6 years old. Zoef is a brittany with a beautiful coat and green eyes. Zoef resides since 2008 in the spanish asylum Lalinea from animalinneed. Zoef is very timid and is difficult to approach, therefore he can currently only be adopted at a distance. If you like to have more information about Zoef visit the website of animalinneed.

This is Sara, she is no longer in our world, however she still brought a message. A wise message, in the form of a letter. I can imagine this really sounds crazy, but sometimes 'crazy' things are more normal then they appear. Would you like to get a message and a painting of your beloved pet?

This is in a way a detail of an earlier painting no.864 called 'Japan In The Backyard'. The red seeds have now opened up to little bell-shaped flowers. Before I did not know the name of this plant so I was pleasantly surprised to find out it is called...

The light of the sun makes everything you see just a little more special. It puts a glow on simple things. Like this leafbegonia. Also people seem to 'do' better in sunlight, at least they smile more often. So come on Sun make an effort and give some warmth to our cold and chilly Holland.

You have to think twice before you invite her to your garden, this witch hazel from Japan. She needs space and you better not trim her down. 
She gives you the best of her beauty if you just let her be. Magically she blossoms in winter even without needing leaves. Nobody knows why. 
But these funny yellow flowers arrive at a moment when we really appreciate color.

I was melancholy about the sad things that sometimes happen in life. Special people like Jeannie that pass away so suddenly. Wanted to throw in some good cursing words because of the grey, cold, wet, depressing weather that underlined this mood. But just when I was about to give in totally to this sorrowful feeling, I suddenly noticed the pearls of rain which had formed in the hedge. They glittered and shone towards me. And i realized, Jeannie of all people, was someone who loved the small wonders of nature. She often shared with me the miracles she had seen or found and i sometimes painted them.
It didn't take away the feeling of loss and sadness of course but it was now mixed with beauty and gratitude. As if sharing some tears with the sky was a good thing.

This is Aura. Aura is a loving soul. You could have known this right from the start, why else would she have a white heart on her chest. She even has a black heart on her nose. Aura wrote a lovely scribble to her Lady. Would you also love to get a painting and a message from your pet? You can have a look here

This is Sandy, she is a little bit shy, but she explained why she is shy to her lady. You might think cat's can't talk but there are people that are able to talk and listen to animals. Somebody like Ineke van Lier. We have a project together now. She reads and i paint. If you like to now more about this project click here.

There is a flower shop on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam where they know exactly how to elevate flowers into art. It is always a feast for the eye to watch what's in their window. Sometimes it's a full bouquet or just one branch in a beautiful vase. I regularly take a detour just to take a look at their latest creation.

One thing I like about painting is that you can change reality just the way you like it. You can get rid of the unnecessary. How I wish it would be that simple in daily life. 

This is an impression of a place in Amsterdam where I often play with my dog. It is a sort of mini-island. I tried to minimize it without losing the suggestion. Do you think it worked? Or do you sometimes feel you would like to strip the superfluous? 

I would love to hear from you.

This is Sjuultje, Milly's Terrier. She is waiting at the AH supermarket straight and strong with her hair fluttering in the wind. She stands there undaunted because she is sure that her Milly will be back soon to come and pick her up. Isn't that beautiful such a couple.
