There's a new world opening for me, I've had my first contact with acrylic pouring and it was absolutely fascinating and wonderful.Okay, doing this is a little bit messy and you need a sure place, otherwise your studio looks like something has exploded inside. But I'll sure continue with this experience. It's so relaxing and inspiring in the same way and I've a lot unused canvas and acrylic colors - so I give it a go!

Jahresrückblick - Review 2018

.

2018 war ein wundervolles und sehr kreatives Jahr, angefangen mit einer Challenge mit Miniaturen in einer Facebook Gruppe, initiiert und gegründet von Maggie Latham. Ich habe die Challenge nicht beendet, habe aber das Ziel von 100 Aquarellen in einem Jahr mit meinen Gesamtwerken erreicht. Außerdem habe ich es endlich geschafft meine ersten Beiträge zu der grandiosen Initiative von Vandy Massey - RUNNING WITH BRUSHES einzusenden und Juhu!! ein Bild ist bereits verkauft worden. Ich bin Mitglied in der SAA (Society for all Artists) geworden und habe mich an der Challenge PAINT A POPPY beteiligt.
Das Sahnehäubchen des Jahres war ganz ohne jede Frage der Aquarelllehrgang mit JOSEPH ZBUKVIC in Girona. So viele Jahre hatte ich davon geträumt und es war unbeschreiblich gut, lehrreich, inspirierend und ach ... mir gehen da glatt die Superlative aus. Und Girona unter der wundervollen Organisation von Angela Barbi - EPC ART COURSES zu erleben, würde ich am liebsten wirklich jedes Jahr machen. 

2018 was really a wonderful and very creative year, started with a challenge with miniatures at the FB group founded by Maggie Latham. I've not finished this challenge - goal was 100 miniatures watercolors in one year, but I've reached the number 100 as well with all my works. I've also send some first contributions to the wonderful RUNNING WITH BRUSHES project byVandy Massey. Became member of SAA, taking part in their PAINT A POPPY CHALLENGE.

But the cherry on the cake was the watercolor workshop with one of the best living watercolor artist - JOSEPH ZBUKVIC at Girona. A lifelong dream came true!

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: 
I've a bunny 4U- for March, Duckling - for AprilBarn Owl - for OctoberLittle Hedgehog - for November, Diving Ice bear - for January
