This is a very special painting for me, because over the years I’ve often asked photographer colleagues for the permission to paint their photos. The credit for this belongs to a very dear FB friend Carol Bleichert, Canada, who lost her battle against cancer in December 2018. She will be missed very much and stay always in my heart 

Now I've already 6 works for monthly animal series with loose background:

Ich habe die Challenge mit den 100 #little gems nicht geschafft und dennoch bin ich sehr zufrieden, mit diesem Projekt, 25 sind immerhin ein Viertel. Solch kleine Formate sind wahrlich nicht meine Komfortzone, genauer gesagt habe ich eigentlich Miniaturen nie besonders gemocht, doch wie so oft, habe ich durch die Teilnahme viel gelernt und freue mich auf die kommenden Challenges in 2019. Von Herzen das Allerbeste Euch allen und ein glückliches 2019!!


I did not manage the challenge with the 100 #little gems and yet I'm very happy with this project, 25 are at least a quarter. Such small formats are not really my comfort zone, more specifically, I've never really liked miniatures, but as so often, I've learned a lot from attending and am looking forward to the upcoming challenges in 2019. The very best of you all and a happy one 2019 !!

There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself.

Only an experiment with wet-on-wet technique, two colors and little time during the holiday preparations. But there is something in this I like and hope you like it too.
