A chance encounter with Harold A. Cueva Vasquez

Yesterday I bumped into Peruvian painter Harold C. Cueva Vasquez on the streets of Winterthur. We had had a lovely chat, and he invited me to take some pictures of him in his atelier in ‘Haus zum Bilder’ (www.inzwischen.ch) as well.

You can visit his exposition in Kulturort Uferzone, Theiligerstrasse 59, 8484 Theilingen (www.ufer-zone.ch) until June 16, 2019. On June 2, 2019, he will paint there live!

Harold’s own website is http://artecuevas.ch/. Check it out!

A photoshoot with Schubert!

 was asked to do a photoshoot of the Kammerorchester Kloten with their new conductor Francois Girard Garcia last Saturday. Of course, I stayed for the concert. However, given they played the 7th symphony of Schubert, I did not feel I had a choice! It was a wonderful event, and I am looking forward to attending their next performance!

Photoshoot Dutch Painter Iris Duchateau

A couple of weeks ago I did an impromptu photoshoot with Dutch painter Iris Duchateau when we met each other in Normandy (France). Iris was originally a violin player who took up painting later in her career. I absolutely love her work – check it out on www.irisduchateau.nl.

Started to paint abstract again (1)

I finally have the time and peace of mind to start painting again! For starters I created a series of three abstract paintings in quick succession. I love the abstract expressionists, especially Clifford Still, Richard Diebenkorn and Willem de Kooning. The last one is my absolute favorite.

Two other paintings are nearly finished. I will share them when they are.

I am very interested in your comments on the paintings. Please let me know what you think!

Modern Architecture Rotterdam

Being born in the Hague, it is clear where my loyalties lie. Having said that, I recently visited Rotterdam, and was pleasantly surprised. The city oozed a great entrepreneurial spirit and confident non-nonsense attitude. I also loved the architecture around the Erasmus Bridge, some of it I had never seen before.


All pictures taken with Olympus OMD-E-M10 camera and a 14-42 mm (kit) lens. The pictures were post-processed with Adobe Lightroom.
