I miss this painting a lot - but the painter who bought it did me an honour. For me it was the most true to the concept of this "Together-alone" series. A couple physically intimate but mentally on different planets.. with the emotional stuff quite subtle and bang up against the edge again. Why do I do that??? And a hint of shutters. Back then I was lucky to have models prepared to adopt these kinds of poses. I am trying to get the owner of a similar painting in this composition to send me a photo of it.. "you didn't photograph it?", you ask. "You might as well not have made it!" - You are right!... now I would never do that..
Sunny afternoon. Uddel, The Netherlands - Somewhat weird to post "old" paintings from last week, ... especially while it's depressing grey here at the moment. Zonnige herfstmiddag. Uddel, The Nethe...
