"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!


"Beach chairs on Sylt"

Acrylic on canvas

90 x 90 cm (Triptych)



Where hundreds of people take the beach chairs and populate the beach in summer, it is now almost completely empty in September. The beach chairs are hibernated in October. Until then, you can take a short rest from one of the beach walks and - a little protected from the wind - enjoy the fresh North Sea air, watch the waves and watch the seagulls doing their aerobatics.


"Lighthouse East at the List Elbow"

Acryl on canvas

70 x 70 cm




The Sylt vacation also includes a walk around the northern tip - "Elbow" - the island, which is also the northernmost part of Germany. From here you can already see Denmark and watch the departure and arrival of the ferries to Römö.

The iron groyne remnants bizarrely stretch their teeth out of the water. Or just what is left of them. One thinks to recognize strange forms. The dune landscape is also beautiful here and the lighthouse is visible from afar.

With a little luck, one or the other seal will rest here, which - with the necessary distance - can be observed.

In winter you can walk here pretty much by yourself ... you can relax and enjoy the wind and waves to the fullest.


And if you are very lucky, then ..... yes you will also find a seal feather!


"At Lake Hammerschmiede I"

Acrylic on canvas

40 x 50 cm



"Blue Sea"

Acrylic on canvas

100 x 30 cm



Beach grass fixes the fine sand of the edge dune. The wind blows gently through the grass. The waves strand in the Wenningstedter Sand in their meditative calm uniformity. You don't want to believe that the year is still young. I can guess spring, but it's still far away. But the seagulls don't contest this. They drift incessantly in the wind, they seem to enjoy the fact that I am watching them in amazement. What a great flight artist they are. If I painted them, my work might be kitsch ..... I leave it and carry my memory in my heart. Until next time. On Sylt. On this wonderful island high in the north, far from the south.
