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)

painting storm sun rain, North Sea, Hallig islands, triptych

At the beginning of the year 2018 the three paintings "storm, sunshine and rain" were created. Inspired by the often very fast changing weather at the German North Sea coast, the idea was born to devote a triptych to these forces of nature. It is a painting of inner landscapes, a world of ideas. I thought of the North Frisian Hallig islands and their inhabitants, who are so exposed to the weather. The pictures can also be found under the menu item Painting. (Storm, sunshine and rain, 45 x 105 cm, acrylic on canvas)
