3rd entry, Brienzwiler
I am sorry to say that the yellow summer is passing – but not the yellow period. The thirty-first of August was the deadline and the conclusion of the “Yellow Summer” series. All in all 40 works of art came into being. Some of them I like very much, especially the cornfields and the large-formatted series “Supernova I to III.” What remains is the understanding that yellow shades are totally relaxing for me. They cheer me up and for some reason they give me great comfort. Maybe they create a resonance within me that awakens a quiet yearning for inner calm and reflection.
What could be more poetic than a cornfield ready for harvesting? It caresses not only the eye; it lightens up my entire being. May this radiance be my companion in the days of winter to come und may it be reflected in many works of art. Hallelujah!
I have achieved my goal of 30 to 50 works in shades of yellow. The process was a strenuous and extremely lively one. There were moments when I did not know where to begin because there was so much to be done. This still continues to this day. A pleasant side-effect was that I lost three kilos.
