1981-1983 The creative liberty

The Ab Overdam 's courses taught me the old painting techniques: A true technical
calvaire, precision, patience, but exceptional results.

Learn to master the technique to better detach from it, is the lesson of this period.

Upon completion of the course, encouraged by my girlfriend, my creativity exploded.
The crucifix has a very special story: a friend showed me a picture of a Byzantine golden coin I had never seen, but who had exactly the same pattern as my painting with a smiling Christ!
