Leiden is a charming Dutch touristic city that you can put on your list for this summer.
To quote the first two paragraphs of Wikipedia…
Leiden (/ˈlaɪdən/; Dutch pronunciation: [ˈlɛi̯.də(n)] (About this sound listen); in English and archaic Dutch also Leyden) is a city and municipality in the Dutch province of South Holland. The municipality of Leiden has a population of 122,915, but the city forms one densely connected agglomeration with its suburbs Oegstgeest, Leiderdorp, Voorschoten and Zoeterwoude with 206,647 inhabitants. The Netherlands Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) further includes Katwijk in the agglomeration which makes the total population of the Leiden urban agglomeration 270,879, and in the larger Leiden urban area also Teylingen, Noordwijk, and Noordwijkerhout are included with in total 348,868 inhabitants. Leiden is located on the Oude Rijn, at a distance of some 20 kilometres (12 miles) from The Hague to its south and some 40 km (25 mi) from Amsterdam to its north. The recreational area of the Kaag Lakes (Kagerplassen) lies just to the northeast of Leiden.
A university city since 1575, Leiden houses Leiden University, the oldest university of the Netherlands, and Leiden University Medical Center. Leiden is a city with a rich cultural heritage, not only in science, but also in the arts. One of the world’s most famous painters, Rembrandt, was born and educated in Leiden. Other famous Leiden painters include Lucas van Leyden, Jan van Goyen and Jan van Steen. The city has been one of Europe’s most prominent scientific centres for more than four centuries. Modern scientific medical research and teaching started in the early 18th century in Leiden with Boerhaave. Many important scientific discoveries have been made here, giving rise to Leiden’s motto: ‘City of Discoveries’.
Leiden University is one of Europe’s top universities, it boasts thirteen Nobel Prize winners, it is a member of the League of European Research Universities and positioned highly in all international academic rankings. It is twinned with Oxford, the location of the United Kingdom’s oldest university. Leiden University and Leiden University of Applied Sciences (Leidse Hogeschool) together have around 35,000 students. Leiden is a typical university city, university buildings are scattered throughout the city and the many students from all over the world give the city a bustling, vivid and international atmosphere.

Best wishes for warm healthy safe holidays to all.
These shots are some of my favorites from a winter photo shoot.
I want to thank each & every one of my followers and visitors for the likes comments and support since the opening of this blog.

Turbulences soon coming up in bigger version… & opening of new online shop at Saatchi Art


Turbulences

Proudly presenting…
Turbulences. 30/30cm 3.1/2 cm deep.
Forces of nature always fascinated me, tornadoes are one of them.
A demonstration of raw power par excellence.
Having said that I’d rather stick to my canvas than approaching one of them.

Please scroll down for close ups…
Notice the movement & metallic colors used to convey the electrifying energy emanating from
a stormy atmosphere.
Extra strong gel medium was used to produce the relief.

Having had a good feedback on this small version, my next project will be a much bigger one…

Thank you all so much for your continual support.
Your visits, likes & comments are most valuable to me!

I want to take this opportunity to announce the opening of my new online shop on Saatchi Art (I encountered too many technical difficulties on Etsy when they lately changed their rules)
Will keep you updated as soon as I have the time to feed my account with photos of my painting collections.

Happy new year!

Happy new year!

Being one with nature, this is the feelings we get when surrounded by natural beauty…
Best wishes to you all!

My apologies for the delayed wishes… Just couldn’t get down to posting it here, nevertheless still managed to squeeze it into my Instagram & Facebook account, somehow I find the tagging more time consuming here:)
Does anyone feel the same?

These photos were taken on the day before new year. It was so sunny it put me in the mood for a serious photo shoot session which surpassed my expectations.
Let me know what you think…

My “studio”


My "studio"

My “studio”

This is what part of my “studio” looks like 🙂
I have decided about a year or two ago to make my painting a priority.
I kept busy in a consistent manner, on a regular basis.
This is a part of finished, unfinished & drying off projects.
To me this shot celebrates my hard earned labor & one of my life’ s passion.
