himmelhoch jauchzend zu Tode betrübt

“Borderline”, 2017. Acrylic colors on paper. 30x42cm

Far, far away there is a big city. I can hear it from here.I know there are people, thousands of them, maybe a million. I know there is a party going on. I want to go there. I can hear them laughing and chattering. French, English. Lots of words I don’t understand from the distance. From the safety of my place. There is a storm coming. I can feal it vibrating the air, down to the bones. I fear the winds, they might blow too strong. I am not ready. It’s too dangerous to leave my place, for now. Tomorrow I will go to them and join their party. For now I stay here and dance on my own.

Springs first attempt

‘Killesberg’, 2017. Acrylic colors on paper. 42x30cm

The grass is brown, no leaves on the trees, winter still deep in the minds and faces of people – March has no real highlights for a painter looking for motivs. Maybe except this old tree in the Höhenpark Killesberg Stuttgart. So I spent one of the first nicer Weekends 2017 under it’s branches.
