From the small goddess series... investigating pre-historic Goddesses in western civilization and earth centered worship.

Semi-archaeological detailed delicate drawings are combined with raw and emotional brushstrokes of golden paint, a symbol of the treasure of our encounters, the dramatic heritage and the mysterious dance of Life... the goddess is at the centre of... .

Men on a ship...
over the mountains, across the sea.
I remember his scar.
Backboard at first glimpse
intangible meeting.
Small strokes, one after the other.
Layers of eyes.
Blessed one.
A big leap of imagination...

They all wear the same sailor's tattoo.

"During the summer, I worked as a p/t nature guide in the local National Park, Sächsische Schweiz, near the Czech border, taking children and teens on educational hikes. Many hours in the forest enchanted me again to paint those magical rocks, gulches and trees... in my studio, they re-appear before my internal eyes..."
