“Mehr Meer” · 2016 · Acrylic on Canvas · 27.6 x 39.4 in

Sometimes the title is clear to me before I start to paint, like here. The nice thought “All in all, one is sitting far too little at the seaside”(translated from German) swam into my virtual net. Now it is placed…

“Living Cliff” · 2017 · Acrylic on Canvas · 27.6 x 39.4 in

“Big Red Ball” · 2017 · Acrylic and Ink on Canvas · 7.9 x 11.8 in

When opening a box of freshly arrived art supplies a scalpel fell onto the canvas. Under a thick drop of blood-red acrylic, the wound is now healed. And I like the result so much that I declare the painting as…

“Bridge. No troubled water” · 2015 · Acrylic on Canvas · 39.4 x 27.6 in

This is my very first painting on canvas. Previously, I had used fiber-board, cardboard or glass plate as a base for my acrylic painting. Thanks to the surface structure and absorbency of the fabric, canvas gives me even more exciting…

“Petit rêve” · 2016 · Acrylic and Ink on Canvas · 15.7 x 19.7 in

“Nude in the Pool” · 2017 · Acrylic and Ink on Canvas · 7.8 × 11.8 in

I was just about to paint a Kingfisher as an abstract painting when I had to take a break. I didn’t like what I’ve done to this canvas. I switched over to Facebook, glanced over my timeline and read a comment…

“Sommer in der Stadt >42°C” · 2015 · Acrylic on Canvas · 39.4 x 27.6 in

The Greek philosopher Diogenes of Sinope is said to have lived in a bathtub. I can imagine this very well. Actually summer is a very nice season – but not in this city. Here, urban planners have either not recognized…

“From Soup to Nuts” · 1996 · Acrylic on Fiberboard · 43.3 x 70.9 in
