Peninsula

I finished this piece last week. Slightly different than my other work. Less detailed, brighter colours and with less depth. The blue at the bottom for instance, has the same brightness, the same tonality, as the blue at the top. That makes the painting more flat.

In contradiction to that, there seems to be a sort of horizon at 2/3 of the painting. But the white at the top…? Sky? (but why does it stops then?). And are we looking down on something, or are we just facing a pile of colourful blocks? …..

Hopefully I have the time to frame it and use it for the exhibition that starts at the 17th of april in Harlingen (beautiful town at the coast in the north of the Netherlands). It’s still wet (oilpaint), so I have to wait.
