Three cows

39.3 x 55.1 inches
oil on canvas


In a small picturesque village called Vuren, nestled in a green province in the centre of the Netherlands, I met this old farmer a while ago who allowed me to freely roam his fields and barns. At some point, I encountered these three cows, side by side, shoulder to shoulder, capturing my curiosity: ‘well, this could actually be(come) a beautiful scene for my next painting’!

The painting comes without a frame. I always paint the sides of the work, so that the scene carries over to the edges. This way there is the option of not framing. I also wire my paintings. Thus, the work is totally finished and ready to hang.
