Nature offers so much beauty. Landscapes are a rewarding subject for working out depth and perspective. Sunlight turns the elements into so many colours. Sometimes with and sometimes without people in it. People have a personal relationship with the place where they are. I love being outdoors, and I want to show this.

The summer of 2015 had many dark days when we celebrated holiday in the far north. Which does not mean that between changing periods of sunshine, rainfall and storm areas, nature provided a great source of inspiration.

On a beautiful fall day in the woods, and then, how great is that, with half-closed eyes standing in the sunlight.

Mountains in India This painting is for my son Erik Suurmond, who has his work a couple of times a year in India. For me a fantastic challenge to depict hi sfeeling of admiration, and a good study in the technique
 It is the view looking down from a higher point into the vally of Sikkem. The water is floating into the painting. Aside of the road will become visible the typical prayer flags, people in india place round the country to forfill their dreams.

Walking from "Bergen aan zee" to "Egmond aan zee", I saw the sea framed by snow and grass. Early in the spring it had been snowing. A beautiful combination of snow, beach grass and sea.
