John Alcott and Haughten Forrest were the big Australian seascape artists of time gone by. These early artists were producing spectacular beautiful works which are now hard to come by. Inspired by their creativity and after some study, I created my version of these developing historic days without going to be accused of making a straight copy or infringing any ones style, as it still shows a strong early European interpretatation.

All art by Jos Kivits

A portrait of an room or office with the books, paper, watch and Delft lidded Tobacco pot, and old long pipe. An allegory of study and contemplation.Just a few objects found in the house of a deceased uncle who was reading the paper while having his last smoke from the Ming tobacco pot (which lid is invisible behind the box.  The box with some small personal trinkets, a small checkered  pill box,  and an empty red glass flower vase, as he was a widower and did not like to see dying flowers in his house anymore. The feeling of holding something in your hands that is hundred of years old, like the pewter and the ceramic Japanese vase, gives me a feeling of agelessness. It vibrates through my entire body and to spend weeks painting something like this climaxes to an explosion in my imagination.
