I love the JFX200

Its full name is JFX200-2513. A flatbed printer that my local printing service (Janssen Print in Nijmegen) owns. It’s amazing what they can do with that machine. As a demonstration, they printed a photo on a sidewalk tile in front of their office. After years it is hardly even worn.

Raven

What am I working on? I ordered a new pad of watercolor paper without realizing how big it was. It turned out to be as big as my usual ‘Plan B’ size, 40 x 50 cm. I mean, I know what 40 x 50 cm is, of course. I just hadn’t realized that it was the same size of the canvas boards I use for ‘real’ work.

What’s going on? I have several new paintings and projects. And I am getting ready for the Mystic Dike exposition (11 out of 12 works finished and framed). And I found a new technique.

Hystericat

What am I working on? I have a picture called “I’m not sure that hystericat told the truth”. I was wondering what it would look like in a classical gold frame… As if it were a 140 years old. Unlikely, art-historically speaking, I know, but still…

The last Kline: night

I framed the last Kline, the last one for now. I seem to be the only one who likes my Klines… Sigh… But I guess that’s what it takes to be an artist, keep going whatever people think. And not in art only, either. Well never midn that, I should be happy I have no corona, rather than be griping about recognition.

Blind Horse

What am I working on? This is a painting that I worked on before, it’s now finished. “Blind Horse Dreaming of Dragons“. I really like it. It lifts my mood every time I see it.

The evening

This is part 3 of my Doctor Kline series. It is now evening.

Doctors are everywhere in the media these days. And not only in the media also in the hospitals of course, which are filling up with corona patients needing life support. Doctors and nurses are becoming heroes; they work long hours and run big risks.
