Folder doesn't exist or doesn't contain any images

"I can't paint!"

That was my belief when Michael asked me to try it.

I had never had contact with canvas, brushes and paints before and was accordingly skeptical.

Michael didn't give up and so I tried - with a lot of respect for the blank, white canvas. And to my astonishment, it worked!

How proud I was when I actually finished my first picture and Michael praised me very much - not without first criticizing very constructively what he still does today.

Encouraged by this, I ventured into several still lifes, a landscape and a collage. Everything worked well !!!

My view of things has changed from what you see in my pictures.

So I increase from picture to picture, which leads to being “exhibited” and named here.

Without Michael’s encouragement and praising, appreciative criticism, I wouldn’t have come this far. Thank you so much, dear Michael!

I would like to preserve my respect for the empty canvas and the first brush stroke.
