"Yes Jon, Seguin was a member of the school of Pont-Aven of Gaugain. The  cloisonne is surely from van Gogh and Gaugain."

"Hi, Jan - sort of Gauguin type 'cloisonné' effect going on there - nice! I like the energetic design/shapes - color seems quite muted - Brittany, I guess?"

Thanks for your request, and it is with pleasure that i accept. You have a very relarkable style to your paintings, very impressionist, i like it a lot. They are a pleasure to contemplate. I think i can see some influence from the French impressionists.

Thanks for the friend request Jan!  So glad you requested!  I went in and looked at your paintings, you have some really beautiful work, and I still see the influence of Van Gogh in a lot of your work!  You and I have that in common Jan, I get told that a lot myself!    Thanks for sharing your views of Holland!!!  Look forward to seeing lots of your work!
