The Knight of prosperity and wealth

It was a race against the clock, but it is finished and ready for transport to Denmark for "Life is a casino" show at MOHS exhibit, Copenhagen. The painting is called "De ridder van voorspoed en welvaart" (The Knight of prosperity and wealth), oil on canvas, 60 x 60 cm.

The first painting (Mammoth Parade) has arrived in Denmark (according to the "track and trace"). Now hope that it arrives in one piece at the gallery! Picture below shows the work incredible carefully packed and ready for shipping last week.

The picture below shows a study and a detail of the work in progress.

Interesting detail on this commission is that I never met the girl in real.
Nanou's dad, sir Mx, who gave me the commission wrote an email with the following text when they received the painting:
