First of all I would like to send a BIG "thank you" to Myra who is a very creative (and fast working) artist and film maker! After having just discovered my work, she surprised me with a wonderful little film about Cezanne, full of humour, in which she also featured a few of my paintings!!!! Have a look on Myra's blog Last cup of coffee and enjoy!
I am very touched and feel honoured by so much attention! Thank you, very, very much, Myra, for this lovely gift! And please excuse me for not having mentioned this yesterday already, but we were invited for dinner and I simply didn't make it.

Another attempt at a portrait of Melodie, the young Dutch woman. I prefer the brushwork here, it seems more lively to me than the first one, but unfortunately I didn't manage to capture her likeness as well as before. I might work on it again...

Hi Liza,

I loved the first one, and this one is wonderful too. Plus I watched the movie, how adorable. And how exciting. Your paintings look just wonderful.
