The Lone Jogger
oil on canvas - 30 x 50 cm
painted on location - Thurs 28 Jan 2016
The place is the quiet beach, but believe me, it is not at all quiet in these days. Why just the sound of the wind blowing anything that is not fastened to the ground, will make your ears beg for peace and stillness. This work was made just in time, while Poseidon was still hanging around. But as is clearly visible in the sky, something was brewing up, the wind playing with the clouds like they were tennis balls. Why Zeus himself must have gathered his team and decided to give those government coastline planners something to rejoice about. Aeolus, Zephyrus, Boreas, Notus and even little known Eurus have been summoned and the dunes are growing a mile a minute. You even have to climb sand piles 5 to 10 meters high at the entrances to the beach just to get on it. Oh well, you most likely don't have the time to check this out, so that's were I come in. Immortalising these unique moments on Zuiderstrand on linen, for your eyes only!
Until next week, hasta la vista
