My son David gave me the idea that I should paint a tree, and I began on this very day. The old oak in our forest garden served as my inspiration and subject. Within three days the 80 x 60 cm acrylic on canvas piece “The Old Oak Tree” came into being.
It has a massive trunk with a wide crown and soft green spring leaves. I outlined the trunk and branches with gold paint and let it flow through the tree as if it would absorb cosmic energies and conduct them through its roots into the earth. The background suggests an evening sun, which soon disappears behind the horizon, but its glow still gives the tree something sublime and majestic.
When I look at this painting, I see the powerful oak with a hopeful sky. A tree, deeply rooted and bound to everything. Here is the link: The Old Oak Tree.

I wish for a humanity that believes more in itself and is connected to the godliness in their hearts. Critically questioning the mass media and expressing their own thoughts.
I wish for people who have the courage to live as individuals and who are connected with nature, the sun, and the stars. People who have no fear to express their own values and thoughts and live confidently despite adversities.
It is those indomitable light warriors of God who are able to distinguish truth from untruth and see through Corona and the control game connected with it. It is in the nature of man to be free, peaceful, and loving. Free will is an inalienable right throughout the universe. Being aware of it is the first step to freedom.
Corona helps mankind to wake up.

Finally, spring is here. Joy and light flow through the woods. The first migratory birds, such as the Blackcap, Iberian Chiffchaff, and Black Redstart, have returned. In our garden forest, a female Red Kite sits on her eggs in the nest two weeks earlier than in the last few years. I watch with binoculars daily and look forward to the young birds hatching in around 30 days. This female and her mate successfully raised nine young in the last three years. Since Red Kites can live up to 25 years, I hope that this pair will keep this same breeding place and their territory for many years to come.
I write about nature because it is so wonderfully inspiring for the creation of my artwork and because a piece has emerged, is designed by nature, and is developed in a way that only nature can. It is appropriately called “The Nest.” Currently, I am displaying this piece in my gallery in Brienz. From August 25-29 it will be available to view as part of the SwissArtExpo in Zürich main station.
Here is the link to the artwork The Nest, which is also the Artwork of the Month for March.

Franziska and I spent two days this week at the Parkhotel Gunten on Lake Thun. A small, spontaneous time-out, which Franziska especially enjoyed. She loves the element water, so the wellness area was particularly appealing to her.
We also use the time to continue writing a book. This project lies very close to Franziska’s heart. This will be an artist biography. She has been working on it for a few years and it is coming along well. I now narrate and then write my take on the chapters she has given me. We often work together when we are on the road, for example, while driving. Franziska transcribes in shorthand while I dictate in Swiss dialect and High German. She is keen to write a biography of the artist herself because she thinks that no one knows me better and knows more about what happened than she does. She is right, of course.
We take our time with this joint project, as there are also times when writing is difficult, simply because, as in every relationship, there are ups and downs. Plus, the husband becomes headstrong and difficult.
Taking life as it is is a challenge.
Finding peace within myself is my daily prayer.

A good friend and patron, who bought some exquisite works of art about a year ago, sent me a package filled with sweets and fine treats about a week ago. What especially pleased me, however, were the very fitting words, as if heaven had its hand in the game. The words were something like this: Seylech, do not give up, even in this very uncertain and challenging time of transition. The words hit me right in the heart. I was so touched that I needed to pause for a moment while reading. I silently thanked the creator. This gift came so suddenly at a moment that could not have been more fitting. Bruno, thank you very much!
There will soon be a new link called “New Line” added on my homepage where I will show works that require a bit of courage from me. I will now show a side of my artwork, which until now I made only vaguely public. There are abstract, modern, and austere compositions that afford me a lot of space and freedom. Some are created in fast, sure movements. Others need a lot of time and are multi-layered and dimensional in themselves. And as so often – how could it be otherwise – there is also some gold. Gold, which refines everything so wonderfully, makes the image glow and creates warmth.

Another year, full of changes and challenges, comes to an end.
Artistically it was relaxing and unwinding for me. I could create fine pieces that are very time-consuming. In particular, these were natural works of art made with pyrite and mountain crystals.
As always, I enjoy working in my studio, and the ideas and inspirations are always present. I am never bored. It is a good sign that shows me that my art continues. When the inspiration is there, all is well.
I think about the world and find it crazy. I am often out in nature and find peace there. It continues to give me meaning and joy in life. I gain clarity and take things one day at a time.
Thank you for all the good things that have come my way in the past year.

The happy Advent message:
The causative agent of a previously isolated disease now appears to have mutated. It spreads worldwide and faster than Ebola. The new virus AHA is extremely contagious and abruptly leads to a clear mind in the here and now.
It starts harmlessly with the consumption of organic food and the need to protect nature. This is often followed by a rather pronounced aversion to mass media. Eventually, the symptoms turn into an increased sense of being unified, a complete connection to one’s own soul, and a previously unknown freedom from fear. Finally, the course ends in unconditional love and gratitude towards the Creator and Creation.
The establishment is completely at a loss. All the tried-and-true means such as chemtrails, radio waves, sports events, mass vaccinations, stock market crashes, and threats of global war scenarios seem to be completely ineffective.
The virus is called the “truth virus” by experts and is to the most severe degree virulent. By all means, avoid contact with independently-thinking and responsibly-acting people, otherwise:
Welcome to freedom!
