Paintings by Ruud Janssen

On the old www.iuoma.org website I also documented some of my art. Always with low resolution, and not that good to look at. I am now placing the images in better resolution. Just click on them and see them full size. All made with acrylic paint on canvas. Size 60×40 and larger. These were exhibited too.

I will place more links to oplaces that are interesting for you, so from this BLOG you will eventually find a lot of things that I placed online.
