Liza and Marilyn…

August 5th, 2013

The first week of my holidays rushed by… I managed to do a lot of painting! I can show you two new ones!
The first one is Liza Minelli, painted in neon colors…

size: 60 – 60 cm.

and the second one is Marilyn Monroe, painted in the same style as I painted James Dean (they sort of belong together I think…)

size: 50 – 50 cm.


Ofcourse there is another reason for me to produce so many paintings lately besides the fact that I LOVE painting…
I’ve been asked if I was willing to show my paintings in Grand Café De Schutterij in Vlissingen… as in a real exhibition!!!! Uhhhm… I didn’t need to think about that for a long time… YESSSS!! They thought my colorful paintings would look great in their Grand Café and after I found a picture of it on the internet, I think so too:


And there is more….

A lady who ownes a fashion shop (also in Vlissingen) asked me if she could use some of my paintings in the shopwindows during the filmfestival Film By The Sea. A yearly event which brings lots of people to this city!! So a great opportunity for me to show my work to all those extra visitors!!
There was/is only one ‘but’… Both events take place in the same period…
Because I want my paintings in both places means I have to have a lot of paintings… and that’s why I’m working so hard lately.

So no more blogging right now, back to another canvas!!

    Dat meen je niet….. tweemaal gevraagd in dezelfde periode?
    Kan me helemaal voorstellen dat ze jouw werk in hun winkel/cafe willen hangen. Het zal er vast en zeker prachtig uitzien wat alleem maar meerwaarde geeft.
    Veel plezier met het schilderwerk :)
