The last of the homehauses

I had finished the homehaus series, but then Dike Mystic Wim Kol came up with another depiction of his Dike Temple, this one inspired by Piranesi. Now there were 6 Dike Mystic paintings and only 5 homehaus works.

Twiggy

And at the same time, the XP20 group continues. It is still small, 4 active members plus 1 member who communicates through icons only. But we do make ‘communal works’ and we do work on shared themes.

I love 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.

Composition

What am I working on? I finished something: 8 small works on watercolor paper and framed in sets of two. They are now in our office building, in the hallway. That building is sort of a ‘captive audience’. A very silent audience, now with corona…

Homehaus in the house!

My homehaus paintings have come back from the printer. I’m excited. Suddenly my studio is full – even fuller – of 90 x 90 paintings

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.
