Life, Death and Transformation

Frits Hoendervanger's avatar Frits Hoendervanger Vote Code: 65315

This large oil painting on canvas explores a close-up view of a fall scene. A bed of decaying leaves, giving life to new growth, reveals autumn as a second spring and nature's continuous cycle where life and death become one. I have spent much of my life painting landscapes inspired by the passage of time, whether it be the effects on man-made objects left to the land to be absorbed back into nature, or the circle of life witnessed during quiet walks through the forest. "Life Death and Transformation," is a continuation of that theme.
