Amsterdam Impression # 1 – Art Musings

Amsterdam Impression #1
From an unexpected layover in 2015

Missed a flight in 2015, which led to an unexpected layover in Amsterdam. I am not one to let a walkabout opportunity go to waste. This is one work from that adventure.

It was cold and the sky was overcast – and I was running around, trying to make the best of the few hours of daylight I had. Thankfully, Amsterdam is a treasure trove of wonderful visuals.

Waiting for Patrons

All tables set and ready for patrons to fill. Upstairs at Bar Hortera, Latina Barrio, Madrid, March 2018.

Early – HIP work – Madrid 2018

Early
A few minutes before owners set the room for the night patrons

Madrid, March 2018, La Latina Barrio, upstairs at Bar Hortera – I was too early to experience the night life at that fluo/glitter bar – Spaniards don’t even think about a night out until most of us are already in dreamland.

For this one, I still went heavy on textural accidents, but wanted to convey a feeling of a world-reality bubble.

Alice in Berlin
More appropriately – Alice in Berlinland

A painting started in 2015 and more or less finished in 2018 – Berlin in Winter impression, enhanced because the reality wasn’t nearly as interesting as this ;o)
