ja- nein

Ja-nein. Mixed media on paper. 21x29cm.
For a whole day I was thinking about putting this image here..... As it is a very personal image.... and than again   :  Most of my work is personal. When I studied I was taught very much to just paint what I really feel or have experienced myself. I was in that time always tempted to paint 'old masters themes' like 'the death and the girl' or other art historical very heavy 'stuff' .
 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.
