Artist's description:

I created a serie of four paintings inspired by the poems of Bernard O'Donoghue (Irish-English poet). Thijs Weststrate translated these poems into the Dutch language.
This painting is titled 'Dream'.
It was not my intention to paint persons and interiors. Only suggestions with light/dark and shadows.


In a wheelchair, just inside the door,
you looked even older and frailer,
winding your handkerchief around your wrist
as usual. I stole past, thinking
you wouldn't notice me. But you had seen:
your hand was now on my arm and, smiling,
you addressed me by someone else's name.
So I asked how you were feeling, and you said,
as you'd always said, 'Better than I should
at this stage of my life.' And smiled again.
