21st entry, Museum of Art Bern

It is places like this where I thrive, get inspired and feel at home. To visit a museum of art is to leave the daily routine far behind and surrender to the moment. It is to arrive at the platform of my own being. I enjoy the moment and treat myself to coffee and cake.

The opening days in Grosshöchstetten are a thing of the past and the exhibition “Art at the Red House” has been opened. Well, how should I put it? It was a lot of conversation about art, form, color, life, music and – as so often – money and women. Meeting people and talking lifted my spirits. This is what I frequently miss at home in Brienzwiler.

I am glad and feel very privileged that the opportunity to show my work – even the larger paintings – has presented itself in Grosshöchstetten. The exhibition rooms have a touch of a museum, which I appreciate and which I only noticed after the work was done.

Last but not least a piece of good news. Sometimes it is good to voice your opinion and to express your displeasure. Lo and behold, oil colors in five kilo canisters are available again. Hallelujah!

Now, back to the studio. There are paintings waiting to be born.
