at home I continue with the paintings of rainy landscapes. I had a hard time with the canvas because the material was too thin and after every layer I had to tighten the canvas again. The first customer, after a longer period of not selling a single painting, was interested in exactly this painting. Although I regretted the selling of this painting, I was happy because I could afford new fabrics. I donated the thin fabrics to the “Verein zur Rettung kleiner Wildtiere”. It took me many weeks until I finally finished the complicated paintings of the rainy landscapes. During this time the weather changed and I was in the mood for painting more Mediterranean and sunny landscapes, however, I used these days to air my atelier thoroughly and get rid of the acrid turpentine smell.
