Photos from the exhibition

Before the opening yesterday, I took some photos of the exhibition.

It's always a great feeling to see the paintings, which are normally in a folder at home are hanging on a wall.

The opening day was wonderful... so many of my friends came and I also met some new people and had great fun talking with them. THANK YOU everybody for taking time to come and see my paintings there.
And I'm so happy, that I sold 3 paintings already...

And... I got such a wonderful surprise !!! Flowers from my great friends Erika and Udo !!!
I was deeply moved and happy beyond words about this great gift !!!

ICA 2010

When I came home today I found the catalogue of the ICA 2010 in my mailbox.
The "International Contemporary Arts Exhibition" was in June in Seoul and Cheong Ju in Korea and it was a big event.
Many famous artists from Korea, China, Japan, France, Italy and Germany took part and I'm happy and excited, that my painting was there, too.
Now I can enjoy the catalogue with all those beautiful works... a pity, that I was not able to go, too... well, hopefully someday, when the kids are grown ;)
Here you see my painting "Butterflies", which took part in the exhibition.
In October it will again be exhibited in Tokyo. I will announce more details later.

News about my upcoming solo-exhibition in the galerie "le Port" in Kobe will follow soon...

Last weekend, we drove to Karatsu and visited a famous spot there, called "Nijinomatsubara" (虹の松原), which means "Rainbow out of a pine beach". The beach has the shape of a rainbow and along that beach is a pine-forest. It belongs to the most beautiful spots in Japan.
We went up to the castle there and enjoyed the view...
After a delicious menue in one of the restaurants there, we drove up to the mountains and went to see the waterfalls there... there are about 8 of them and you can hike all the way beside them. But it was too hot and so we just took a look at some of them.
We drove further up in the mountains and enjoyed the view. Here you can still see Nijinomatsubara in the distance.
Up in the mountains, there is a plateau with a shrine small lakes and beautiful nature.
We spotted a lot of mushrooms (those are not edible, but they look beautiful)...
...and enjoyed nature there. It was so much cooler than down at the sea. There were a lot of frogs, some snakes, Dragonflies and Butterflies there.
Someday I want to come here, when the Lotos is at full bloom.
on our way back the kids had fun playing in the river. :D
