Painting together with friends is one of these moments I've missed so much during the last Covid infected year. So I was very pleased (after full vaccination!!)  and happy that my dear friend Gabriele Rinkleff invited me to paint together in her gorgeous atelier. This broken wonderful blossom was our warming up exercise and I like the result and hope you agree.

I found no time for serious painting but missing my brushes I had to do some miniatures and I must say it feels gorgeous to play with water and pigments again.
