Great day, part twee. Holland.

The most beautiful thing I've discovered
yesterday was a little city-garden called
"De watertuin." Its a garden that is surrounded
by houses and the people who are living there
maintain it, yet it is public and such a little marble
in a big city, like Arnhem.

"Vanuit De Watertuin." Arnhem, Holland.
(From out The Water-garden.)
Oil on board. 22 x 24 cm.

I've discovered even more city-gardens
so just for myself,
(City-gardens Spijkerkwartier, Arnhem.)

Seeing this painting tonight...I had a spark of recognition. Are you familiar with the work of Edward Seago? Not to take anything away from your own style and originality, but your work reminds me of his. He was such a master of subtle values and restful design. I get the same feeling from your work. Bravo!

Wow Ed Im blushing, to let some one thinking about Edward Seago through my work, that a huge compliment!! Thanks. Are you familiar with Trevor Chamberlains, David Curtis and Edward Wesson? together with Edward Seago they are great inspirations for me.

Thank you Wanda, although I try to put as much color in my work as I can, and I still have the feeling that I manege to put more and more of it in it.
