A Change, Spring 2012

This Spring, after almost one year of work, I had completed my last woodblock print series of Washington State landscapes. After working so long on such a big project I felt that it was time for a change in direction.

After working with the spectacular landscapes from the North-West of the US, I was looking for something more ordinary. I went to my favorite lake to create a woodblock print for a calendar and painted at the lakeside.

Soon after that I went to the US for attending a show at Cullom Gallery, Seattle, and also for creating new works. While traveling through three different landscapes, I started to navigate my work into a new direction. I thought that the way to do that technically was to concentrate on painting and, in case of new prints, to choose a rather small format. I want to show some of these new works here, and also photographs of the places where they were created.

For the third time, my friend Joe Kaftan and I traveled around Washington State. This time we went up North into the Northern Cascades near the Canadian border.

I wanted to try to simplify my work.

Joe had brought a kayak for working on the water. We went to Diablo Lake, a lake in the mountains.


We paddled across the lake. I painted two small sketches for woodblock prints.

Last destination of my trip was Long Island. There I worked with the huge stones on the beach.

I also designed more woodblock prints.

At home I continued working with the theme of the stones.

I want to thank Joe Kaftan and Bill Harrison, who so much supported me in my work. Thank you so much.
