Windmills...



It looks like Neederland but, in fact, it's a landscape from the "Astra" Open Air Museum ( the largest open air Museum in Europe) near Sibiu, Romania. As a child and a teen ager I've spent a lot of time around and still have some pictures of it... When I get nostalgic, I take a photo and I paint... When I'm sad, when I'm happy, when I'm bored... well, I do the same thing... I paint...

This is a 8 x 10 inches canvas, painted in acrylics, and it's yours for Ca$ 95 ...

I remeber! I've bought a similar landscape from you about 5-6 years ago! I've like it because it was like in my native Holland! I still have it in my living room... But this is even better. I'll contact you on the private email.

Yes, Mrs. van Djik, I remember. I hope you still got my email (didn't change).

Darga Danu,
Veronica Van Djik a spus un lucru corect. Intre Van Gogh si peisajele tale exista niste asemanari, dar si o deosebire esentiala. La el compozitia curgea in tuse concentrice. incarcate de o tensiune a celui invatat sa strige tacut. La tine, cercurile sunt oarecum liniare, ca si cum ai desface lumea astfel incat sa o poti impacheta ordonat in culorile vii ale reamasitelor verii.
Mai vb.

This sir, is a scary painting.
I'm sure most of you won't agree given the very cheerful pinks and yellows but this is one troubled artwork.
And that may very well be because of the branches reaching out to grab you.
I'm not sure you went for this contrast but is there and I think I like it.

I never know when you are serious and when you joke, Alfred... for me it is not scary, but as I've said already you can see some really scary stuff I did ar Deviant Art, for instance (as Ion Danu)...

No, I was serios this time. To me it actually looks like the nice windmills sitting quietly in that romantic landscape are being suddenly attacked by the flesh eating branches that are reaching from the bottom right part of the painting. I almost expect them to move slowly conquering the rest of canvas.
I did watch too many horror movies, didn't I?
