I like actually two works here most: Windmolen and Two Figures in a Landscape. The latter is more becoming to my character, to be quite frank. I don't like the things that lay in front of me and are simply things, I like to look at the painting and see what only I can see and nobody else.

Thanks Colin, that later works talk to me about painting even though they are objects they still carry the history of painting and that's what is amazing about them.
