Blaue Libelle/ Blue dragonfly, 2011
mixed media, 24x32 cm
Last June I was on a canoe trip in Spreewald . I was so full of all I had seen and experienced that I have been painting 20 mixed media paintings about its mood and my memories, in the meantime. I might go on ...
The blue dragonflies fascinated me.Their blue could only be seen for a very short moment depending on the light and movement. So what pleasure to be able to " catch" it permanently in a painting!
There's a video about the trip here, too. You can see the surroundings from the boat.
