In her thoughts

"In her thoughs"
Oil on linen canvas, 2009

This started out as an sketch of my dear wife, i just wanted to paint somewhat the same way,
that i assume that John Singer Sargent painted.
Well this is a very humble effort compared to his mad skills. :D

Thans René!
Yeah, i have been painting like a crazy lately. I am just trying to learn new things and find new ways to push the paint around.
I propably wont paint anything too serious in a while :D
