24 x 18 cm. Oil on canvas. 2016. “Munich in the fifties”
2016 was a very productive year – also painting-wise. This painting was inspired by a photograph found in the German newspaper “Sueddeutsche Zeitung“. The building was created by the Nazis (I didn’t realize that at the time of painting this motif). The photo was black & white, so I stuck to that color – and it works well to transmit the heat of the day when the photo was taken.

I am very interested in Orientalist Art. These are paintings that provide a western-world view of what the orient should look like, and they have thus very little to do with the reality of the Orient, past or present. Having said that, this artform does remind me of the books that I used to read as a small boy, and has a great personal sentimental value for me.

Get great adventure stories as paperback of ebook; on any device!
These books are great. Remember the books from childhood? Used to read them over and over? I cannot believe people are talking about nudity, zombies, or Adam and Eve. I didn’t think a thing about those when I read adventure stories as a kid. You won’t find any other stories that you will be more satisfied with. Why? Here’s why.
When my aunt was a little girl, one of the last touring vaudeville companies came through her town, and she got to see the show. The centerpiece was a one-act drama featuring a pretty girl in peril. The climactic scene began quietly, with her sitting next to a lamp, sewing. As the mustachioed villain sneaked onstage, the audience began to murmur in alarm. When the lovely young thing gave no sign of sensing the danger, the audience’s murmuring gained urgency and volume.
The innocent girl continued to sew her apron.
Closer crept the villain, drawing a knife from his coat…
In full voice now, the audience warned her: “Behind you. Turn around!”
That’s what adventure stories are all about! Get you copy today!
