Did you ever noticed, what beautiful and interesting frogs exists? I did...! With my impression of the unbelievabale beautiful blue of the Blue Poison Dart Frog I started, and this little series of frog paintings came into life: "Frog King" , "Red-eyed Tree Frog" (this painting!) and "Blue Poison Dart Frog".
Red-eyed Tree Frog is an abstract painting, playing with the colours of the Red-eyed Tree Frog, red and green.
Sealed with a glossy varnish (Lascaux) as it matches the style of the painting and as a protection. The sides are painted in white. Signed on the front.
40 x 50 x 4 cm | 15,75 x 19,69 x 1,57 in

I find my inspirations in colours and materials - for example in a beautiful deep turquoise mountain lake or in the washed-out grey of concrete in a city. Based on such impressions and inspirations I commence my work and my artwork often comes to life in little series. Each painting is unique and the creation and development of each painting is a time consuming and slow process, usually lasting many weeks and in some cases up to a few months.
My paintings are acrylic mix paintings, for example, acrylic paint with charcoal, oil pastels, pencils, spray paint and many other artistic materials. I often combine these materials with natural materials and objects from nature (e.g., leaf seeds) as well as with ash, sand or building materials such as grout or plaster.
My pieces of art are created informally. Each step builds on the previous step, leaving room for chance but also for corrections and erasures, until the final finished artwork has evolved as a composition of colour, shape, texture and surface.
Due to the complexity of my paintings and the interplay of (collage) materials, my works are not simply one-dimensional, rather they entice the viewer not just to explore them with their eyes but also to touch them.
My works of art are informal; they are my personal expressions of my experiences and impressions and each piece of art is truly unique and only one of its kind.
