Commissioned by a Whisky friend of mine, I painted his grandchildren. This as a surprise for his son and daughter-in-law.

Super happy with these pen drawings. They are beautifully molded behind clarity glass.

Painting of ZZ TOP and painted mannequin

Recently I made a black and white painting of ZZ TOP 2017 (120x80cm). I also painted a mannequin again. It remains a challenge to do this.

During our stay in Porto (Portugal) in spring of 2016 we acquainted with a special Portuguese man, Ramiro Salgado. While we were shopping we arrived in a small but cozy cheese adjoining Port shop (Saboriccia) . Ramiro, the owner, was very enthusiastic and took us straight on. He was so excited that we recorded very quickly and were considered friends. During the weekend we often visited him and we had many dinners together in the city of Porto. As promised I made a portrait of him and his girlfriend. This month (February 2017) we are flying to Porto to deliver the painting to him in person.
