La ferme Ferté. 2021

Acrylic on paper. 29x39cm. (2018) Private collection.

I kept this painting in my discard pile for a couple years, I meant to finish it and then thought better of it.

A couple years ago it snowed in my village. Since it’s a rare occurence, I took many pictures. Some of them made it to a painting. Some in the bin.

I thought maybe it could be added to this year’s collection of paintings.

Jardin privé. 2020

Jardin privé. 2020. J.Harms. Acrylic on paper. 29x39cm.

These are unusual times.

The weather is warming,

the sun is shining,

birds are singing,

but we are all confined indoors

to prevent a virus from circulating.

In French, « Jardin privé » which literally means « Private garden » , can also mean « deprived of garden » in a more poetic sense : « de jardin privé… »
