These small panels of Larissa and Lena I began way back when, they were intended for the exhibition at Gallery Labusch in December. I'm rather late. I won't apologize as some paintings need more time than others. Some paintings need the right time. It took a while to rekindle dreamy innocence. Romance drifted once again into my world as I devoured Henry Millers 'Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch'. His oranges refer to my redwood forest Nymphs and how they glisten in the golden coastal sunset. And so since I began this rich book I decided many things. Two are almost certain. One is to witness the Garden of Earthly Delights at the Museo del Prado and the other is to visit Salvadore Dali's home in Figueres during the Nocturne. Both are excellent ideas.
In the meantime I am back to huge bountiful abstractions using up all the materials I have in my studio in a new series titled 'Recalentado'.
