Someday ("Eens")

This is an older series, also a modular piece. They're oil on panel, each 30 x 40 cm. They're hung up as a block of 12, that being one work. They're sold by the piece, but when one is sold I make a new one to replace it (up to an amount of 25). In this way, they can be cheaper as well.

This work is about time - the initial series was based on landscape pictures that were taken in a circle, following the sun - one day divided in 12 moods.

"Eens" (the original Dutch title) means 'someday, in the future', but also 'agreed', as in we're agreed.

Painting time

I tried to specify the mood of each 'hour' by colors - during the day there's a fluctuation between warmth and light. The light comes early in the morning, but the day is hottest after the sun started to lower again. Sunsrise is much colder than sunset. Research for these 'moods' were done by improvised singing, in an experimental group. Originally, these paintings were meant as a design for the backdrops of a theaterpiece.

Buying these paintings

The panels are done with natural paints (partly handmade), and have a partial gloss. If you're interested in buying, I can send you some high-resolution pictures, from different sides (to get a notion of the shine). They cost 225 bucks a piece, signed and numbered on the back. They're crafty, happy pieces - maybe a bit too happy for some adults, but they're great for kids rooms. And for those who can value a positive look on life.
