There are so many still life painters and his work is always breathtaking. All the paintings seem pregnant with atmosphere and a quiet drama all their own. Flowers are so hard to paint.

Hi Doug
I was looking at his work on Google Art Project, where you can zoom right in. I was amazed at how impressionistic and loose the brushstrokes are close up, but as you zoom out it all looks so convincingly crisp and real. Pure magic.

Hi Jeronimus,
thank you for telling me that. I am looking it up in two seconds.
