New Work: “Amarillo” – Reminiscences Project
January 8, 2008
I just finished the next piece of my Reminiscences Project and I called it “Amarillo” because it reminds of the wonderful colours in Mexico. This is also a “personal record” for me as I normally cannot work that fast as my paintings are much too complex to be finished within a few hours. But as I have done the pre-work (photographing, editing etc.) a while ago, the painting itself works very well and smooth.
I don’t know who lived in these bungalows, which are history in the meanwhile (which means they don’t exist any more) , and who painted the walls but the colours are just so vivid and friendly. Exactly what I need for the mood to cheer up. Winter always sends me into some depressing state and I try to go out as often as possible – which helps a lot to get out of it again.
