Skyline Heerlen 1972

"Skyline Heerlen 1972", Heerlen-The Netherlands. Oil on MDF, 50 x 40 cm.
I painted this work to remember how I saw the skyline of the city Heerlen when I was 7. On regular basis me and my family visited this city for shopping and my father's work. These were the last days of the Dutch coal mines. Lange Jan and Lange Lies (Long John and Long Lisa) were the highest smoke stacks (155 m) of the privately held Oranje Nassau coal mine. Those stacks were part of the power station house to fuel the coal mine lifts and factories.
The painting is made with permission based on a picture made by Fred Fouarge, I added the coalmine to it including the mine stone piles.

This is work is painted with Royal Talens Cobra, the premium water mixable oil paint.

Autumn at the Onze-Lieve-Vrouweplein, Maastricht

Evening Autumn light beams over the Onze-Lieve-Vrouweplein (the Our Lady Square) in Maastricht. One of Maastricht's most beloved squares where you can sit down on a café/restaurant terrace. The square is a busy meeting place during Spring and Summer. Along the square the Our Lady "Sterre der Zee" (Star of the Sea) Basilica is situated. The church building originates from the 1st century B.C. Painted in impressionistic style in one stage.

Avondherfstlicht strijkt over het Onze-Lieve-Vrouweplein in Maastricht. Een van de meest geliefde pleinen in Maastricht waar men op een café/restaurantterras kan verpozen. Het plein is een drukke ontmoetingsplaats tijdens de lente en zomer. Aan het plein ligt de Onze-Lieve-Vrouwebaseliek "Sterre der Zee". Het kerkgebouw dateert uit de 1e eeuw voor Christus. Geschilderd in impressionistische stijl in een sessie.
