Ode aan de merel- Ode to the blackbird

Material: Acryl and goldmetal on linnen
Size: 100 x 80 cm

Every day I enjoy the singing of the blackbirds in my garden. it soothes me, makes me smile, in happier and darker times. I made a painting to highlight the blackbird and I gave him a beautiful tree and a nice swing to sit on and sing his song.
singer composer painter performer. I started my working life in music, and since the end of 2018 I started painting because I felt that urge to express myself in that way too: telling stories in images, in colours. It resulted in an unstoppable flow of inspiration. I dug in deep. Painting, writing music, performing: it's all coming from that same source.
