Colors of the desert – Colores del Desertio – Die Farben der Wüste

Street leading to Death Valley

Impressive Vastness of the Desert

I am very much attracted to deserts. For me driving or walking in these untouched and so surprising landscape is always stunning, sometimes frightening, always touching. My deepest amazement is to be in such an inhospitable and in part intoxicatingly beautiful landscape in which its for any creature an incredible art to survive.

An artist journey

Here I share some impressions from our journey to Death Valley and the surrounding desert AND at the bottom of this page some news of my artist journey!!!!!

The photos cannot reflect the real impression but may be give an idea about what can be experienced in the desert. (All photos made with my iPhone camera) and the paintings hopefully reflect my personal experience of the desert! Enjoy!

Weather – Sandstorm in the desert

When we headed towards Death Valley we had to pass near areas of Los Angles which had terrible fires and a lot of smoke. The view of the landscape was partly blurred and we didn’t know if this was smoke, fog or a sandstorm. It was a sandstorm which offered most amazing and beautiful views and transformed the landscape from second to second.

The “Desert Trip Prints”

Our stay in the desert was deeply impressive and I started to create a series of digital paintings. So I am walking on  a new and quite exciting artist paths.  As soon as I feel my Desert Trip Series is competed I will publish it and offer prints. I have never before offered prints, so finding the right format and paper and especially an experienced Fine Art Printer was a journey in itself. But now I am happy with the one I finally found – the first prints look beautiful!!! I assume I will be able to release this edition, which will be a limited edition about mid of January. 

“The little pink house” Greenland prints

Last year I painted a series inspired by our journey to Greenland. As some of the original acrylic paintings are already gone,  I decided to release at the same date as well a limited edition of the “The little pink house” Greenland prints so they are available to an affordable price for those who love them. See the development of the original Greenland paintings here.  If you want to be one of the first to get to see the full edition and first special offer, join my newsletter here.
