What a great initiate from my fellow American Artist Ricky McEachern!
Please do check out his webpage where he shares some of his works.
During those days of social distancing, I am delighted that the new project Kreativ in Verbindung is keeping connections and opening room for my art students to exchange and continue working together creatively. Twice a week there are video sessions and mutual projects with a joint effort to motivate each other but also keep up with regular painting and drawing activities.
To all my friends, colleagues, customers and students: Thank you for this Super Summer 2019!!!
Through the last 6 weeks I was intensively traveling, became part in many activities and experienced new adventures and was able to enjoy great moments, a lot of them at fantastic locations and all of them illuminated and warmed up by the summer sun. I will treasure these moments and look forward to all the thrilling new options and projects that have taken form and that will carry me flying through the winter, looking with excitement into the next months and the coming year 2020. All of You I am wishing a great autumn and winter full of inspiration and success! E.
These days many friends ask about my plans for summer holidays and tell me that with beginning of July everything is slowing down a bit as most of us looking for a break from work. In fact, July for me is the opposite. I was working hard to empty out this month and not taking any commitments for work or travelling so that I will have some space to go back to my studio and work with no time-boundaries throughout this month on paintings that I started, realising ideas, and get down with the kids on a major painting topic I really like to work on. I know this month will be flying and the first week is nearly over and still fiddling with one commission to be finished and that one is kind of sticky to the easel. But I play holy with levels of quality for all my commissions and rather do an extra tour before signing it off. Hence, I get up early and work this day to actually wave off this landscape biggy at the end of the day and then zone into my very own creative world. I am planning to post on Instagram some glimpses into my secret garden studio however knowing me I am not going to be too wordy about the process until I call it to be anywhere near to completion. In the meantime I look forward to be surprised by learning about your summer adventures. Today is a great day! Enjoy every minute of it! E.
Packing is the task today and thinking of all the things to think of before heading off to pretty much the most northern point of Germany. I am working with a friend and colleague over the next weeks on two wall paintings as part of a private commission on the island of Sylt. It's going to be an exciting project that unfortunately I will be rare with posting pictures given the word "private" which I do respect since it's not in a public space but will hopefully beautify a private home once finished.
