"The Second Wave"

Acrylic on canvas

70 x 120 cm



In the spring of 2021, two very, very sad news reached me shortly after each other: Two camper friends, Georg and Jürgen, were no longer alive. They fell victim to this insidious COVID-19 virus and are no longer with us. This made me sad at first and then extremely angry !!! I went to the studio because I wanted to paint more pictures for my exhibition "More Sea", which started in Esslingen in June. All my anger was transformed into unimagined strength and this picture full of energy was created!

The size in itself has an effect. But also the wild water, the big waves that seem to pull the viewer into the sea, immediately cast a spell. I had a long battle with colors. In the end, I am very happy that I chose the right notes. Many thanks to my daughters Nadine and Kirsten, who supported me constructively!
