All landscapes are painted on location during all kinds of weather and different circumstances, even at freezing temperatures. That is how the atmosphere of the specific moment is captured.

The mystery of a misty morning along the riverside, or the sweltering heat with big contrasts on a summer day on the sand hills…

“When you look at it you can feel the crackling cold and at one of the paintings you can see the bleak light of the sun between the trees. When you look at it carefully, it appears not to be a realistic painted tree. You could almost describe it as abstract. At the same time, that is the exciting aspect of the work, it gives the spectator a lot of freedom to fill in the image itself.”
