“Taming of the wild” Canadian painting

I don’t live by the Nordsee anymore but the West Coast in Canada does show the force of nature just at much.

With the painting “Taming of the wild” I wanted to paint an abstraction of the wild storm and the wind by the Nordsee, it is attacking the old wooden breakers; they are withstanding for so many years the endless pounding of wind and water eroding the beaches and trying to destroy the Island of Sylt.

The quality and the feeling of a painting on canvas is not quite captured on a flat computer screen and I do not use glossy protective varnish only flat medium, but the colours are very close to the real painting
Full moon and all the stories around it.
It is the first full moon in 2017 and he (she, it) really shows of his coolness and the power over us on earth.
We arthritis sufferers getting a double whammy, the cold winter temperature and the full glare at night but then again the light through the windows means one does not have to turn the light on for the nightly walks around the house to get the stiffness out of the bones.
I look at the colourful reflection on the water or more in the water and wonder what it reveals deep down on the ocean floor. Does the moon keep the creatures from the dark zone awake as well, or if we would sit in a boat right now, could we see all the garbage we throw into the waters ,because we creatures above the waters are thinking the ocean is an endless pit for hiding our junk?
Not a good thought, so I better keep on walking and enjoy the Moonbeam in Mill Bay

2017, it has arrived

Soon or later one has to admit the year has landed. It came with a real grip of winter, I think we all did not expect that, but here it is Canadian landscape under snow and ice.

I have a very special photo from my son George Rettich to show to the world.

Dream On

The dream in the sand I had a dream I wrote him in the sand. I told the wind of my dream but the wind brought the sea to the beach, where my dream was written. The sea accompanied by the wind did not see what was written in the sand because the sea took his hand with the dream which was written in the sand. I wasn’t scared when the sea was back in its cradle because I wrote my dream in the sand again.

Take a folding chair

How to write a good blog – “don’t bore anybody”, so do I write the blog or am I dictated by what someone wants to read?

Same with painting do I paint what is “in”? Or do I paint what is me?

Is the consumer so insular – narrow-minded? I cannot believe that.

( google is full of ideas “how to write a blog)

We would have never found new ways of expressing our selves; no abstract paintings would ever have seen the light.

I am sometime fascinated by old quotes – so here is one:

You can travel the world but people are alike where ever you live ;

or this one: I like the sentence from “Shirley Chisholm” When they don’t give you a chair by the table – take a folding chair”, love it,

{Shirley Chisholm? Black lady, run for president 1972)
