|Ja-nein. Mixed media on paper. 21x29cm.|
Later on , I understood more what my teachers meant, as these paintings often stay on the surface, because you just 'technically' paint the painting and your feelings stay outside of the work.

|'I will teach you about the world' |
Mixed media and collage on paper.
Funny , that all my work in the last 5 years (at least) always was done on a collage. I always 'work' on the canvas or paper before I actually paint on it . Because I dislike white paper or even worse white canvas. So I always glue newspaper and leftover canvas pieces on it , before painting. And true: I some times enjoy doing that more , than the actual painting... So maybe I should stay with collage for a while ! :-)

Inner Freedom N°2.
Mixed media on material+panel.
"why's?".... and some times I have to say : " I don't know, it just happened that way ..." And than I have to think of this artist ( can not remember WHO it was ... maybe someone can help me here ) :
" It might be coincidence that it got onto the painting , but it is NOT a coincidence that it stayed there" ...

|"Charlotte wished to fly" Mixed media on paper. 70x100cm ( framed )|
The paper used, is the paper that protected my working table for a couple of months ! The coffee stains and working traces just take the 'fear of the good white empty' paper away and gives me inspiration….

|' The Crow'. 87x102 cm. Mixed media on linen|
In the last year, my theme was 'befluegelte Wesen' that you could translate with 'winged creatures' . I must say, that in German , it does not sound so much like words from a horror show !
One of my first pieces was "The Crow, inspired by a landing of these huge birds on the power cords while I was walking the street. It was a very strong image, a bit uncomfortable too .... Some people find also the painting 'uneasy' .
