Time for another Siesta

And as it is all about paintings of mine moving to new locations, Siesta II recently moved from Darmstadt to Munich.

French Aurora or something like that

French Aurora

Thought it is time to add some of the works I created during the Christmas holidays. Thanks for being an inspiration Mr. M 😉

Feeling Blue

Literally. Finished this one yesterday. Had a batch of blue colour on my forehead which I only noticed afterwards while trying to get paint off my hands. No idea how it got there…

Anyway, this one was inspired by a paper graffiti in Reykjavík. I don’t know if it still exists as it was already half destroyed when I left the island in October.

Something new

As promised, I’ve been busy painting these last couple of days and I finished a couple of works I started already in October. So far, all of them are inspired by Iceland and I also attempted my first self-portrait. Or alternative title: Rainbows and unicorns ^^

Rainbows and unicorns

Frontpage

A picture of me was to be found on the front page of a German local paper followed by a brief article about me, my paintings, my travels, and ongoing exhibition on page 2!

Apparently they are going to bring another similar article next week. I’ll keep you posted about that. Meanwhile have a look at this one ^^

Humboldt

I took part in the Dawanda Design competition and my wallpaper was among those to be picked and soon to be put up on the wall in one of the rooms at the Meininger Hotel on Berlin!

The place of the hotel is the location of the former house of Alexander von Humboldt, a German naturalist and explorer. The Meininger Hotel is inspired by Humboldt with each of the rooms and wallpapers relating to a quotation by him. The one I picked was:
