23-29 June Group exhibition in Freising Bavaria with Lars Herrmann, Jürgen Lechner and others
1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th weekend of Advent Christmas Market Sophienstraße
For the last month I worked only in Thuringia for family reasons. So it is not surprising that several pictures have Thuringia as their theme. The swans in a pond in the Thuringian Forest and two pictures of the state capital Erfurt.

This month, private matters predominated. Therefore I only created one picture, but that was a real chunk, with a new technique, the stipling (you could say dotting).
Furthermore, my calendars for 2021 are now on sale.
Markets and exhibitions are all cancelled, the next event is probably the Christmas market in Sophienstraße.
The lockdown continued in April as well – albeit with some easing. We made many trips to the Brandenburg area and I found a lot of motives there. My wall calendar was still missing a page and the title, I did that too.
The children’s book got two pages again.
And here are my graphics from April.

March was a really strange month. Since the beginning I am almost exclusively at home and in quarantine with my wife. As a result, I was even more productive than usual.
I start to finish my children’s book “Da kommt was Großes aus dem Meer! (Something big is coming out of the sea!)”. In March the pages 14 to 17.
And also six graphics. Once again Buhnen, since Buhnen III is sold. Also the Gendarmenmarkt had to be drawn again – and was sold within a few hours.

There were five pictures at the beginning of this year. The picture of Freising Cathedral is already exclusive for the joint exhibition in the Bavarian city in June.
At last, my art book “Light on the Streets.” Here is the introductory text:
In “Light on the Streets” you will find 112 pictures created in the last seven years. Since 2013 I have been working on the graphic capture of cityscapes and the charm of this subject has become stronger and stronger for me. The light, which draws patterns on the streets of Berlin and many other places around the world, is the main theme of my work, as it creates its own mixture of familiarity and astonishment. The reflections and shadows give the rooms an idiosyncratic structure and give the hectic big city something almost antiquated, giving the pictures a magic of their own. I invite you to search for this magic on the following pages and wish you as much pleasure with this book as I had when designing my cityscapes.

In November I was busy with the successful show “AlsterArt” in Hamburg and the preparation of the Christmas business. However, I still had time for three pictures and the design of a Christmas card.
The AlsterArt 2019 is over and I am back in my native Berlin. This was my first art show in another city and a complete success. Many nice new and well-known colleagues, many good conversations and as a bonus some sold pictures and good income. Well organized in the beautiful Poppenbüttel – it was really fun. Gladly again!
October was a very productive month. Five pictures, two of them especially for AlsterArt in Hamburg. A reminder of the beautiful Berlin summer: “Summer in the Bergmannstraße”, a harbinger of the dark season: “Happy Hour Helmholtzplatz” and a study in water and reflections “Autumn Swamp 2”.
In September 2019 I was mainly on holiday in Iceland – therefore there is also a picture of the majestic Dettifoss. And since I am exhibiting and selling at the Alsterart in Hamburg in November, there is also a picture of Hamburg.
That was nice again. The art festival in the Pankower Schlosspark was again a highlight of the year. Also because the Pankowers are somehow exactly the right audience for my pictures. Nine of them stayed in Pankow now. Bye and thank you Pankow, thank you to the organizers of GESOBAU – maybe next year it will work out again…
