Next month I want to present a new book NO JARDIM with sketches of my tropical garden in Mozambique. For me, that garden felt like a paradise with everything growing and flourishing. I would like to share that experience with my audience. I did not sketch on paper, nor with a pencil, nor with paint, but on my iPad. My starting point was the admiration for nature. This has resulted in a concept and style that intensively reflects the colorful tropical atmosphere. In the book I also write about the sketches, the environment and my personal experiences. It consists of 90 pages bound in a hardcover. When you open the book, you experience something of my own paradise. NO JARDIM is written in Dutch, but a translation in English will be online.
To print the book will cost € 5000. If this plan is appealing to you, I would very much appreciate it if you can make a contribution. But you will be rewarded for it. With a contribution of 20 euros or more you will receive the book as a gift. You find it on Voordekunst.nl
The book presentation of NO JARDIM is scheduled for November 30, 2019, at 4 p.m. in the Haagse Kunstkring. At the same time there is the opening of the exhibition of all the sketches from the book. The NO JARDIM exhibition is from November 27 to December 22 in the Haagse Kunstkring, Denneweg 64, The Hague

I made this iPad portrait a few months after Trump announced candidacy for the presidency of the United States of America. I could not imagine that many people would vote for him. I saw a television interview in which he did not substantiate his opinions with any argument. He based his feelings on world politics, in his own words, mainly on the information he received from television.
I had known his artificial hairstyle for a long time. But during that television interview I noticed for the first time that the orange color of his face becomes paler around his eyes. You would think it is caused by wearing a protection cover for his eyes at the solarium or in the spray tan booth. However, there are rumors in the White House that the President is not doing anything about his skin color. It is all genetically determined.
This portrait will be on display in the Haagse Kunstkring as part of a member presentation with the theme Portrait. The opening is on April 6 at 4 p.m. Everybody is welcome.
