This is the fifth painting of the "good food cooking" series, called: Child's play and adult joy.


From a quote of Craig Claiborne, who said:  Cooking is at once child’s play and adult joy.


The background of  my inspiration for this series of paintings:

In April 2021 we visited friends that had recently moved to our neighbourhood. They prepared us a wonderful meal in Indonesian style. Many different dishes, as is custom with Indonesian food, with delicious smell and vegetables with vibrant colours.


We were seated at a table in their brand new kitchen. The cabinets of the kitchen were in stylish anthracite grey. They were still finishing off their kitchen with silver and gold accessories, which match perfectly with the dark anthracite grey.


When we got back home (just in time for the Covid evening curfew) I was very inspired by the vibrant colours of the food against the anthracite grey background, and how well these colours combined.


The next morning, before breakfast, I started working on a series of 7 paintings inspired by the delicious food and their colours in the anthracite grey kitchen. I worked with various motives in fore- and background to give each painting its own unique character.


I like to read inspirational quotes to get me in the right mindset for painting. For the naming of the paintings in this series I have used parts of quotes about cooking.

If you can't find what you are looking for in the shop, check out the gallery for inspiration. You can commision me if you want a unique painting in a certain style, size, colour and/or texture, or a painting matching home or office.

Every artwork of mine is an original.  If you have an artwork of mine, you are always the only one -exclusively- who has this hand-painted work of art.


Trust your gut feeling when choosing a painting. Would you first like a second opinion, or another view, then I'll be happy give you my advice and tips.


You can buy exclusive art from me, or you can lease art. There is an art lease for private individuals and an art lease for companies. Inquire about the possibilities.
