English is my second language – I so often find a fitting title in German for my paintings.
Lately the word “ Werdegang” is flitting around in my mind, does it mean the “process to get there”, no good – sounds like “ processed meat” to get there is not really what I mean either – a mental process with a hope of an ending but also a finished state of mind,” Werdegang” – I look at the canvas – have an idea in my mind – try to turn it into an image but only a color image not a realistic one – so the first choice is made color wise and “ der Werdegang” continues.
I ask my learned readers to give me a real translation
The light house series is not coming off easy, I promised myself to do several paintings of it – but “ Der Werdegang “ is constantly interrupted by different ideas , should I now drop the idea and work on other colors? I wonder. Werdegang
