Just right for the Christmas time I am invited to my 9th exhibition this year…..I am happy to participate in an exhibition that was set up by a truly dedicated man to art: Rafael Fernandez Pacheco. We met at the ART WALK Cómpeta (which will start this year at Easter Saturday!) and ever since, I am following Rafael on Facebook. Gives me a great insight into the art at the coast. It feels as if he is visiting and writing about two to three exhibitions a day – wonder when he ever sleeps.

The journey to Greenland was very impressive. So I was intrigued to dip a bit deeper into my memories and see it all with the painters eyes. Here are the first results, more hopefully to follow! I had a lot of fun to convert my memories and photos into paintings. It was quite a new experience for me, as I usually don’t work with photos. You can see, how I worked here. Work in progress……
This painting is a emotional memory, I started with.
Greenland Memories 1 Acrylic on canvas 81×65
Then I took a series of photos and worked on it…… click to enlarge!
2 .The pink house
I was fascinated by the atmosphere and the loneliness in a repellent nature….click to enlarge!
4. Greenland Landscape 2
So the little pink house became a symbol of a place of shelter and warmth….click to enlarge!
3 . Pink house on rocks, Acrylic on paper
Most of these paintings are very small, (25x35cm on paper) like the settlements are very small in a vast and wide landscape. This is the color story of one on the paintings. Click to enlarge

A painting is a very powerful instrument to give spirit and life to your office or home. Depending on style, color and size it “makes”the room or it adds kind of statement, that you want to make. A painting as well reveals a bit about your personality. A painting in your room is what the eyes are in the face: they attract because they are speaking, they can hide something and they can reveal something about your mood, your spirit, your personality.
Two paintings, that “make” the entrance hall of an Apartment Hotel in Bonn
Wood 1 and Wood 2 were inspired by a holiday I spend on the Darß – a peninsular in the Baltic sea. Riding with the bicycle through the endless woods at the coast with its thousands of rather straight trees and the changing lights impressed me a lot.
Wood 1 still in the studio
Now these large paintings (145×160 cm and 160×145 cm) are the lead theme for the design of this entrance hall of the Apartment Hotel Kaiser Karl in Bonn. They add some charme and character to the hall and they clearly give the mission to the visitors, that this is not a simple business place but a house with personality and individuality.

Another corner – old mirror accompanied by two paintings
If you are in Bonn, feel free to visit the hotel. The staff will be happy to show you my paintings. You will find more in a permanent exhibition of paintings by me on the souterrain. I found this photos and hotel information at Hotel.com Kaiser-Karl-Apartmenthotel
