How exciting !
One, two, three, four cyclists. 2016. J.Harms. 29x39cm. Acrylic on paper.
I came across a picture the other day, in one of my old memory cards. Four cyclists leaving Kilmartin, a Highland stop on a tour I took 2 years ago. It was at the time of the Referundum in Scotland, which explains the ‘yes’panel on the lamp post. The bright color jackets caught my eye and the process in which they departed. One after the other.
Exit royal. 2016. J.Harms. 15x21cm. Acrylic on paper.
Edinburgh castle has many features which I enjoy painting. An elevated perspective, alcoves, unusual point of views, people wandering, and a layer of rich colors . The view from the castle, which I hope I’ll be painting soon, was extraordinary. This exit, which illustrates the end of my visit, opens on the enormous esplanade right infront of the castle. If you go straight on, it will lead you to the royal mile, another fine street.
Le pédalo blanc. 2016. J.Harms. 29x39cm. Acrylic on paper.
On a fine Sunday afternoon, My sister, a friend, and I drove to Pierrefonds with paddleboats in mind. The majestic castle of Pierrefonds, overlooks a beautiful lake. For 4.5 euros one can rent a paddleboat and go for a ride around the lake. There, we spotted herons a plenty, fish wriggling under the yellow water lillies, and ducks of all kinds and colors happily chasing eachother.
Mes tableaux s’exposent de nouveau ! A l’Espace L’ISSUE, 38 rue Quincampoix à Paris, du 24 au 26 Juillet !
I will show some of my paintings along side Chinese and French artists in Paris from July 24 to July the 26th ! How exciting !
Le Lac Laiteux. The 6th Continent 9/365. 2016. J.Harms. 10x15cm. Acrylic on paper.
At one point the wanderer needs to come down those cloudy heights of his. It’s the dawn of a new day over the milky lake.
