Greetings from London
Oct 28, 2022 | Finding, On the Way
This is a more or less secret gem between the big banks of London and the Tower - remained walls of a church, where you can find a little quiet - in the middle of London. Ok, you hear the cars and the red busses, but the bushes and the greent tendrils show us sitting...

This image I used for my tutor sessions and Britta just took the small image and painted it on 7x5cm - as small as it was on the worksheet. Great work!
The last Apple (from painter’s view)
Just at the tree seen jumped ripped off. Rustling, cold fingers, all colors, holeyed leaf - the time has come: The first bite is certainly sweet in juice … must wait.oil on wood, soon in the gallery...

Art against Corona
Apr 27, 2020 | Finding, Gallery
Life has become so different - for all of us, anyway which country. Finally, we really feel that we're all sitting in one boat and how important it is to rely on family, friends and neighbours. Isn't that a big luck to have them? To talk to them in social distance...
