His paintings are an expression of his intense search for the perfect effect of a particular composition. The painting of the natural or cultural landscape was light and airy, determined by the play of light on the nature. His work still life by a clever arrangement by koloristische allure and subtle lighting. The symbols in his still lifes are often flowers, the glorification of God in his works. Plants, often tree-lined avenues represent the four seasons and symbolize the annual flow.
