Hi there

This slightly disheveled young little tit is a frequent visitor to my neighbors’ balcony. Occasionally he would even fly inside the flat.

Diese leicht zerzauste junge Kohlmeise ist ein häufiger Besucher auf Nachbars Balkon. Manchmal fliegt sie sogar in die Wohnung.

Tribute to the Paris victims

Looking on the letters of “Je suis Charlie” with tears in my eyes, I saw a slightly different text.

Eigentlich dachte ich, dass Schildkröten leise Tiere sind. Ein Besuch im lokalen Zoo im Oktober bewies aber überraschenderweise etwas anderes. Offenkundig produzieren männliche Riesenschildkröten eine Menge Lärm wenn es um die schönste Sache der Welt geht.

For the same reason I’ll be updating also this painting soon, as there are now fortunately a couple more people peeking out of the window.

Rocky Beach – Felsiger Strand

At last I found time to paint again. The seascape motive comes from my memory of beautiful sunsets at the Portuguese coast.
