Detail of the painting, "Meditation"

This was painted between dawn and dusk as part of Dirk Hakze's "The Colourfield Performance" where for 101 days (15 May - 15 September 2018) a maximum of 7 artists painted in the outdoors on one of the 499 outdoor panels which collectively created a land art work - a 233 metre (one of the Fibonacci sequence numbers) equilateral triangle of colours in the flat reclaimed land near the historical Fries city, Sloten (Sleat in the Fries language).

This, the 3rd painted panel land art project created by Dirk Hakze and a team of volunteers, was developed as a parallel programme of the 2018 Leeuwarden European Capital of Culture where their theme "Community" is embedded in the making of this land art work.
Almost 400 artists from 14 countries participated.
Most artists wrote titles and stories on the reverse.

My contribution is a meditation that transverses the horizon. From a distance there are shifting illusions and close up all the colours of the palette.
