The garden house

In the back the garden house, which is my studio here, although I spent most of the day painting outside in the rose garden, far away from files, receipts, and verifications, and not to worry, I will not produce any on this place of residence, as this is a purely privat activity…

Im Hintergrund das Gartenhaus, welches im Moment mein Atelier hier ist, obwohl ich die meiste Zeit malend im Rosengarten verbringe, weit weg von Aktenordner, Belegen, und Nachweisen…

In the rose garden

For Manchester…

(spend most of the day painting in this beautiful rose garden, so lovingly cultivated by my host, but in a rather somber mood, after hearing the news from Manchester in the morning )

Dover

As the atmosphere for me in Berlin has become more and more aggravating during the last two months, it took not a lot of persuasive power to follow the invitation of a collector to spend a few days at his country house in England…

The green of May

When walking through the park yesterday afternoon in this suddenly fine weather, seeing the explosion of greens around me, smelling suddenly the air of spring, feeling the sun caressing my skin, those wonderful eternal lines of Shakespeare sprung to my mind:

„Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st,
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.“

William Shakespeare, Sonnet XVIII

Die Frau mit dem roten Mantel

I have seen her many times, sitting here near the Kottbusser Tor. Every time I put some money in her yellow cup, I get a little nod, but never a smile… today I painted her…

Schon oft habe ich sie gesehen, wie sie hier sitzt am Kottbusser Tor. Jedesmal wenn ich ihr etwas in den gelben Becher lege, bekomme ich ein kurzes Nicken von ihr, nie ein Lächeln, heute habe ich sie gemalt…

Die grosse Reflexion

Yesterday afternoon I was invited to a meeting in the legendary Axel Springer House here in Berlin. The high building with its overall glass facade is like a huge mirror reflecting the surrounding city in a kaleidoscope kind of composition. Once I had passed the airport style security ( with the only difference that the security personal here was really friendly ) I found myself in a city of its own, with coffee shops, laundry, bookshops, even a bank…. quite an amazing experience…

Gestern Nachmittag folgte ich einer Einladung zu einem Treffen in das legendäre Axel Springer Haus hier in Berlin. Das hohe Gebäude mit seiner Fassade ganz aus Glas reflektiert die es umgebende Stadt in einer wie von einem Kaleidoskop geschaffenen Komposition. Nachdem ich den Securitybereich ( fast wie am Flughafen nur mit freundlichem Sicherheitspersonal ) passiert hatte, fand ich mich in einer eigenen Stadt wieder, mit Coffeeshops, einer Reinigung, Buchläden und sogar einer Bank … eine beeindruckende Erfahrung.

Demons in my Mind

„In the middle of the night, when fear grips your soul and your rib cage feels confined in a corset made of steel, when your heart beats so fast that you fear to faint, your own personal nightmare, the demons in my mind… „

a new stage set design I started today for a new play…

Prelude in C Sharp Minor / unfinished

I was not able to finish todays painting. A heavy cold, already making himself known for a few days, won the battle today… so I will have to rest for a few days, and come back with the finished work, I promise ! I think this is the second time in more then 10 years that I have to stop my paintings due to a cold, still, very inconvenient it is.

Ich konnte das heutige Bild leider nicht zu ende malen. Eine schwere Erkältung, die sich schon vor ein paar Tagen abzeichnete, hat dann heute die Überhand bekommen. So werde ich für ein paar Tage ruhen, und komme wieder mit dem fertigem Bild, versprochen! Ich denke das ist das zweite mal in mehr als 10 Jahren das ich auf Grund einer Erkältung aufhören muss zu malen, aber ärgerlich ist es allemal.

A story for reflection

Walking in a certain mood around, often it is, that one will find a „reflection“ of oneself. A man sitting there, indicating by his pose, a thoughtful evaluation of his life, smoking a cigarette, gazing at his phone, thinking about a future that may be somewhere else…. and on a different note…. I would like to wish Her Majesty The Queen a very Happy 91st Birthday.
