Jogging through the dunes, Westduinpark, The Hague, Holland

oil on canvas
35 x 45 cm ( 14 x 18 inches)
painted on location, Tues. 13/6/2007, late morning


Today's painting is a second attempt at a dune scene which I already painted back in April. That painting was called Cycling through the dunes.We are not having the greatest weather conditions, but then again, this is Holland, renowned for its clouds and rain. I particularly like the flow of the path and the twist in the jogger's body as she takes the curve. Wild roses and all sorts of flowers are in full bloom. They not only look pretty, they also emit sensual fragrances. The now famous Catamaran clubhouse is just on the other side of the dunes, you can see a few masts sticking up on the right hand side of the scene. Your comments are appreciated.

Finally caught up with your blog - it is looking good. The paintings look fabulous - seems they are nearly all selling - and the new colour scheme is attractive. Amazing progress since April. Bravo. jane
