Hank Schmidt in der Beek

So, these are photo works. I've broken a sacred trust here! In my defence, they have paintings in them. These examples are part of a series that won the Szpilman Award for artist Hank Shmidt in der Beek in 2009. (yes, they're photos and from 2009, sorry.)

I just thought they were hilarious. He "stands in the manner of a plein air painter surrounded by
mountain scenery and paints the pattern of his shirt on canvas."

Have a look at the other work on his gallery website for a fun dose of abstract expressionism as well.
