"Drijvend landschap." Westervoort, Holland.

It is soaking wet outside, snow, rain, wind & everything together
and I thought painting under a bridge would help, ... no way!

At least it gave a splendid reflection in the puddles that where forming,
all muddy as well, ... wonder how Sarah Wimperis came up with that title?!

Nice one Rene. Am I correct, are there real raindrops on your painting? Wow great 3d effects!

Sarah said...

A nice change from the boats, but still a watery theme. Well you are in Holland after all.

Hi Rene, I love your style.

My name is Austin and I'm a fellow artist and blogger who would be interested in doing a reciprocal link exchange with you. If interested please let me know.

Best Wishes,

I like your water a lot René!

OMG! Edward Seago would be so jealous! This is such a beauty!!! I just love it- very strong 'sense of place' in this! Cheers, Roxanne


Rene, I always admire your work, it's atmosphere and
spontaneity. This one in particular has the refreshing
sense of early Spring. The reflections in the cold waters,
the vertical lines of the simple wire fence, that unique
color of the fields in Spring jsut after the snows melted - all elevate this painting to
the sublime! Love it! Jeanne

Hee Dick, nice to visit me!
Yes your right those are real raindrops they even
started as little snowflakes hehehe.

Hehehe Splynch I hope you aren't disappointed
otherwise you have to wait to tomorrow.

Hi Austin,
sure go right ahead, ... I will put you on my following list.

Indeed isn't it, lying 5 meters under sea level isn't that smart.
Although I live at only 3 meter beneath it.

Wow Seago, .. you much to kind Roxanne I wish I could reproduce
his work that would be good enough for me.

Thank you Jeanne, I wish spring would come soon.
On the other hand, a nice deep winter would also be something.
