a dream of happynes

Sometimes something is over, but we cherish the memory of what was. As a result, it is still there and we keep it close as a vivid moment that can be played over and over.

Because something is not over until you stop thinking about it.However, you keep it close if you just keep thinking about it. It is nice if you see this as a beautiful memory that you carry with you.

I saw this painting in a dream. The next morning I immediately started sketching and soon there was the foundation of what I saw in my dream. 

My style can be described as nostalgic, iconic, romantic, warm and averse to false sentiment. This originated from the roots of my life. Because what a creative wealth I received in my childhood, with a father who played as a bass player in jazz bands and a mother who was an idol of films. As a result, I have developed a broad taste for film and music and in particular the beauty of it: the details in old Hitchcock films, the clair-obscur of Orson Welles, the icons of bebop jazz, which warmed our living room via records, radio and TV.

I discovered at a young age that I could draw well. I surprised teachers and fellow students. Only later did I hear that my great-grandpa from my mother's side, 'Johan Frans Tulling', was a well-known sculptor in the 1920s in Rotterdam. I probably got my artificial roots through him. The inspiration for painting came about when I was 16, thanks to my first employer at the time, who liked to paint and had a painting style in the atmosphere of "The Hague School" (19th century). Thanks to him, my color palette has been formed, from which I have not deviated much.

All my paintings are made on wood. Wood does not bounce and has a pleasant surface to paint on. On wood I can scratch and sand, which makes the story stand out even more.
