painting France Provence trees chair

I started painting the picture with the three trees and an empty chair in the south of France. It is shaped by my thinking about a loved one who can no longer be with me. (I think of you, 50 x 70 cm, acrylic on canvas)

painting cathedral nature Kelp forest underwater

The idea for the picture on the right came from an underwater photo in a kelp forest. (Kelp is a type of seaweed with large leaves.) This view from the seabed up into the light fascinated me and I thought it looked like viewing up into the dome of a cathedral. (Nature's cathedral, 60 x 80 cm, acrylic on canvas)

painting wind air colors abstract

The idea for the painting "Colors in the Wind" was born during corona lockdown. The desire for air and wind was very great. I would have loved to go to the sea, which was just not possible. That's why I wanted to paint my ideas of fresh air and wind. The picture can also be found under the menu item Painting. (Colors in the Wind, 40 x 60 cm, acrylic on canvas)

painting enchanted forest Spöktal Lüneburg Heath

The desire to paint a picture of a forest came on a hike in the Spöktal in the Lüneburg Heath near Bispingen. It was a sunny day in November 2019. I had taken a lot of photos there, but in the end it was my memory of the special atmosphere that influenced my painting. The picture was only finished in July 2020, in the times of "Corona". Surely that also had an influence on the picture. (Magical forest, 60 x 80 cm, acrylic on canvas)

painting summer day - landscape abstract, Wulfsdorf near Hamburg

For the painting on the right side I put myself in a field, on a summer day in Ahrensburg near Hamburg. However, it has only been finished after many hours of painting in the studio. The pictures can also be found under the menu item painting. (Summer day, 50 x 80 cm, acrylic on canvas)

painting salt marsh, North Sea coast

I would have liked to paint there in nature, but the way was too difficult to take easel and colors with me. So I made a drawing (Salt marsh, 15 x 21 cm, calligraphy pen on paper) to capture my impression and many photos. The next day, still directly impressed by the experience, I painted. The picture can also be found under the menu item Painting. (Salt marsh, 40 x 60 cm, acrylic on canvas)
