Wow! Congrats on the baby Blessings to all of you. It's great that with kids you still find the time to do your sketches. That's so good.

Dear hubby and I are also having our own little work of art in July, thank God. And drawing is so meditative while pregnant, it's amazing.

Good luck and keep up the good art.

Thanks all!

I've been neglecting my thread for so long now I feel really bad about it.
And I'm not sure if I will be able to change that in the near future

I'm thinking of making a short art/study trip to Rome, Italy in the summer.
Anyone know of places I must absolutely see?
Also, any practical tips etc are also welcome, please pm me?
Big thanks in advance!

I have some sketches from life and alla prima oil paintings but not had time to scan yet.
Will try to do this soon!

Ohhh! I totally missed out on your new family member! I'd be very much surprised if you managed to get anything done at all, not to mention upload it, hahaha.

Congrats, man!

Lost Marbles

Here's a still life I finished last night.
My dad painted this crazy man 40 years ago or so. I always admired the little portrait for it's humorous appearance. The painting, somehow, got lost but he always kept the postcard he used for reference, so I decided to paint it too when he recently gave it to me.

Hey Johan..

Really likeing these still lifes..Nice composition, color, and brushwork...

That character in the last one is a spitting image of the actor and comedian Robin Williams...Can't be him though, because he would have been too young when your father had the card and painted it...Maybe it's his father..LOL..
Anyway, Keep up the Great progress..

Hope all is well with you and yours over in your neck of the woods..
As Always..Take Care Johan

Hi Johan

Hope all is going well your end - sorry it's been so long since my last post (boohoo they've even closed my thread ) - it is always great though to pop back and see what you've been up to here

Great colours in the blue painting with the bottles

I love your latest painting - and the story that went with it, what a great way to pay tribute to a childhood memory and something treasured! I did laugh though - looking at that guys face and then seeing the title.... "Lost Marbles" I'm thinking the funny old guy has the marbles in his mouth... (maybe I'm being really 'doh' - perhaps that is what we're meant to see...?)

cheers and take care

Tangerine and cup

Omg I am so neglecting this thread! Shame on meh!
If I'm not carefull my thread will be closed too
I've been painting though

Had a break from painting at home for a couple of months and was limited to painting at the academy for 2 nights a week with the baby demanding much care and (especially) attention. But now I'm back at it since the beginning of december. When I look back at 2011, I've made a good 20 paintings at home of which I am quite happy with the result (I used to dislike my work when it was finished) and I plan to double this at least for 2012 (actually 52 good paintings would be nice!).

I'm mostly updating on my blog, hence the abcense here (otherwise I spend too much time in front of the pc, rather than using my limited free time for drawing or painting). If you want to, you can easily subscribe by email or follow, then you are automatically notified when I update.

Anyway, here's one of the latest

Kris, thanks slowly but steady moving forward
Annette, hey it's great to see you active here again!
nosisme so can I
Glenn Thanks for the encouragement!

Have a good year y'all!
