Preparing the last things for the next exhibition

I've made a few new series of small paintings. This is new for me... from the very beginning I made large paintings. I cannot help it, I just love 'big' art. I think this comes from the fact that I get overwhelmed every time again when I'm in front of a big piece of art, that I like, in a museum and I would like to get in to it... lose myself in it. On the other hand, this does not mean that I cannot get hit by the beauty of small art. It was really fun making these small paintings, and since I made series of them, they can be hung together... that makes big too!
Some of them will be shown at the new exhibition at Gallery ART-ist in Geel, Belgium that will start Friday May 1.

  1. I think it's wonderful that you're making smaller paintings. Many of us love large paintings and the sheer impact of their size, but I also often hear people in the gallery talk about wanting to buy a peice if it only were smaller and more affordable. I think the new series of work will hit the mark. Keep painting!
