Some of my Many Interests

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly;

what is essential is invisible to the eye."

                                 Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince


I am listening and singing virtually all the time. Almost any sort of music will do, depending on circumstances. Some examples. Best music when cooking: pop and rock.
When painting and sculpturing: chanson and ballad. When listening to the music alone:
chamber music, organ music (Bach!), avant-garde (especially if it is raining). John Cage!



" Summer garden project" is a kind of attempt to re-create paradise on the Earth. It is of course an Utopia. Nevertheless, I believe that the harmony of the
Universe may be found in a single sunflower (not referring to any numbers).



Philosophy, poetry, art history, science.



Letters, poetry from time to time. Have published two poetry collections:
"Epistles to ..." and "Sunflower Alley". Presently writing  haiku off and on.



Dutch and Flemish painters starting with Jan and Hubert Van Eyk, ...
up to Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn,
Italian renaissance, antique. Dadaism.


Oil Painting

I use to collect impressions summer time, painting the rest of the year.


Clay Sculpture

Finished a course in clay sculpture in 2002. Haven't done much since.
