Hiding ball python

6x6 inch

Every ball python has a different pattern. You can see forms in them. Mostly you can see the typical alienheads, but this pastelcolored one has a little heartshape.

stating the obvious

"Stating the obvious"
6x8 inch (15.2 x 20.3 cm)
oil on gessobord
This is such a funny sign. I was running and had to wait for a traffic light and saw this. I must have seen it a million times but never noticed it- a sign to tell you you have to push the obvious, surrounded by yellow, button. The guy in the sign looks so stiff, you don't think he will make it across anyway. He is better off not to push it..
Now I see it everywhere.

Outside drinks

"Outside drinks"
9x12 inch (23x30.5 cm)
oil on canvas
It's cold but no one seems to mind. Fire is burning, drinks are being replaced as soon as finished, there is laughter, everyone is having a good time. Just a friday night somewhere in The Hague.
It wasn't totally dark yet, but I had to redo the dark bits 3 times to make it dark enough to let the fire stand out. I should try to paint from dark to light next time, maybe start out on a dark purple background instead of my usual burned sienna one...
