Windmills I and II

Wind energy has been used for centuries and is intertwined with the Dutch landscape and society. I wanted to set the 'new' windmills opposite of the 'old' windmills.

The  counselors

This work is especially made for a law firm. I put the enlarged bishops, ‘the Counselors', opposite each other. Depending on who's turn it is, can win.



Duet of the Swans

Swans are special graceful birds. Swans are usually mate for life. Pairs are abundantly found in our 'Dutch' landscape. The artwork is a diptych in one large frame. Always connected together, like a pair of Swans.

Grey Mouse

The 'Grey Mouse' will never stand out in a group. In my painting the 'grey mouse' is positioned in the center of attention, totally at ease. The other mice are very curious about this 'gray mouse'.
