The painting is by Willem Haenraets and is titled "Cool Breeze". No copy infringement right is intended. 

I want to thank Roquette, for informing me of the artist's name.  This gave me the opportunity to look at all of his paintings online, many of which are simply fabulous. I LOVE his works of art!  What's more, I hadn't even realized that I have had a copy of one of his other paintings, "Waterside", haenging on my walls for the last 20 years. Thank you Roquette, for guiding me to this talented artist!!!

    Thank you so much, Roquette! The copy of "Waterside" was purchased by me at a "hotel" sale, i.e., the "dealer" regularly made the rounds with purchases from Chinese "factories" where they produced all kinds of beautiful oil paintings (all copies of famous paintings) and where 20 years ago a 24 by 48 inch painting cost about 30 Dollars or less. The same type of paintings in that size now sell for 200 to 300 Dollars.

    My pleasure! To think, I helped name a long lost painting by Willem Haenraets [a copy, notwithstanding] ;)

    I'm quite partial to "Dreamy" from the same collection. The dunes remind me of a long forgotten lazy summer. I hope to see more of your favourites in your future designs.

    A pity this wasn't finished in time for the contest!

    & I believe the artist is Willem Haenraets.

    Thank you so much, Jade.You always give me a lift with your compliments, especially when it is a room that has not really gotten a lot of "likes". However, since it wasn't in a contest and if it doesn't move up to the first page within 24 hours it seems to "die on the vine". Oh well. 

    Your visit prompted me to check your page, and I see that you haven't designed for quite a while. I DO HOPE VERY MUCH that you are alright????

    This is outstanding! I love everything!  Lovely soft colors, very inviting, while being very open. It's a stunner!

    Thank you so much, RaeCam! I am so happy you comment on this painting. Needless to say, I LOVE that painting, and I need to research again WHO the artist was to credit him, because it truly is a fabulous piece of art.
