Ik Leef Breed / I Live Wide – Original Painting


In Short

This is an original acrylic painting on paper. The text written on the painting is: ‘Ik leef breed, stil & langzaam’ Which translated to English means ‘I live wide, quiet & slow.’

The Story

This painting comes out of a time in life when I enjoyed so much of the things I saw outside of my windows. Seeing life go on, in birds gathering, in people passing by, in flowers and in rain. And I felt so at peace. Yet I was unnoticed by most of what I observed. Nothing much happened in my life, yet it was lovely and full of live :)


It is painted with acrylic paints on acrylic paper. The size is 300 x 400 mm. There’s a small white border around the painting where it was taped to my easel.

The artwork is sprayed with a varnish so that it will be more protected from dust, dirt and light. Next to this I would advice to frame the painting in a frame with special UV-glass to avoid any possible color loss over the years – especially if it will be hung in a sunny spot.
