Amsterdam Part 3- 50 Hygiëaplein, Amsterdam

This stage is the last stage in Holland for them as of now… They lived here for almost 5 years. These years I was in Los Angeles really starting my family, getting married, and on my way to my second child…my special little guy DJ. During this time Maron painted a lot and did some incredible work. I will share with you a series that is so beautiful, it is a true favorite phase in his art…

The Guardian –

My father always paints what he sees…sometimes it can be just something that is there and catches his eye or he may set up a whole montage. This piece “The Guardian” is one of those accidental moments that were just there…I recall seeing when I visited them how he kept his paintings in the studio stacked like this leaning against the wall with a nice sheet over them for protection.

The Autumn Leaves –

Such beauties these are. A picture can only show so much!

Lee’s Bouquet –

This one was for my lovely cousin Lee who I love dearly. She fell in love with it and had to have it. Through the years she has acquired some beautiful pieces for her collection of his work.

Oh my…honestly! Beautiful, color, dimension and just every sense it envelops you into…

Here the Master at work…

Painting…Love the black & white

There it is…Marvelous                                                                                – Flowers on Flowers

Oh this one in person is so captivating! I wish you could see this painting in person… that shall come my friends, soon! OK back to the virtual Gallery

This is the one for me…this is one is for me simply incredible and I love it.

Painting mama’s vase…still has this vase and yes it is a beauty

Here he is painting the book and this one as well is amazing in person…(well they all are)

Isn’t she awe inspiring? I have that vase now, so lovely.

Truly enjoy this one…Quite genius                                                 – Dream – The Painters Raft

Inspired by Canaletto - The 2 together look amazing on a wall ;)

Dream…Night at the Opera

Yep! That’s where it is…

WOW! I mean honestly…special piece, very special

We end the post this time with a special painting, this is sea salt from Cadiz. When he went to visit my uncle Manolo in Spain he got this salt from Cadiz which is a very special salt. When you go to a restaurant this is how they bring your salt to the table. My father also recalls this is the type of salt that Abuelo (my Grandpa) would use to cook with, pescado frito etc…

    One of my greatest regrets in life is that your father didn’t paint my son, Kaylan in 1973 when Kaylan was 3-years-old. But we were leaving for London the following day and from there making our transition to the US so it was not possible. But, oh-my… if I had that painting now I would treasure it.
