A painted Ceiling for an Architects Office

In classically plastered ceilings the lime was applied on cane mats that were attached between the beams. Between these 18th century beams the reeds now have been transformed into a field featuring thousands of ears of wheat, so that, looking up from your desk, you sense the proximity of a summers day. Warmly hued blue flowers appear randomly amongst the wheat. Their leaves and stems, however, disclose the painfully sharp thorns of thistles

MILK AND HONEY
Entrance hall and Kitchen of 18th c. farmhouse in Abcoude

EARS OF WHEAT. THOUSANDS OF THEM. All of them painted singlehandedly between the 18th century beams of this kitchen ceiling. A fertile reminder of the days of food production. In this summery field the blue and white of the Delftware tiles is reflected by hundreds of amorous butterflies and so blended into the multi hued palette of a new generation.
In the adjoining entrance-hall a blackbird has taken up residence. In the stucco-lunette under the monumental barrel vault she has built her nest from the wheat on the kitchen ceiling. Peeking over the edge she keeps an inquisitive, yet friendly eye on any passing visitors.
