Someone said I shoud also make some smaller ornaments – turned out it was more difficult than I thought and it took way longer than expected. Many of the images were made during a very active Instagram phase of mine.
There is also a blue and a red variant of this ornament but with different pictures and some ornamentals are also different. There was an open call for proposals – not sure what it was about anymore – but my answer would have been a play with tradition and the red, white and blue variants of this ornament as a flag.

I am dutch and I never ventured into mountainous landscapes, so when I finally went there, I asked on a forum what kind of lenses I should bring. I somehow thought I would most certainly not need any wide angle lenses.
Did I already say, I’d never been to the mountains?
Anyway, I had an 18mm wide angle lens with me and sometimes had to take multiple images, because it simply would not fit into the frame. Mountains are huge, can confirm. Valleys can be even bigger.
This picture, however, was made with a zoom lens.

From the new series high format cityscapes, I like this one most – even though some people claim the Tempelhof one is better. It is just a picture, I still have a problem with that – I always want to make something more out of it, and this one has it. That something, je-ne-sais-quois’ – maybe it is just the colour or so.

I should make more images with small stuff – small leaves, small flowers, macro stuff. The leaves of this plant, when they fell of and dried, they became so curly and slightly hairy – it immediately looked like some old ornament.
It is too bad that the plant died.
Don’t ask me about the keyhole, I have no idea anymore about the what or why, but it was important. Sure. If only I knew where I put that key.

I am also using this as part of a Triptych with a story about the Berlin wall. This pretty much represents the entrance to the west, but with more garbage and more smoke. It is a proposal. I hope I get selected, I would like to do a large work again – the second version of ‘The Benediction Of Saint Stefan the Drunk’ was about the last one, in 2016.
I can not get enough of this theme and these colours. I have been reusing the uturus artwork again and again. I already made other Anatomy artworks, among them a breast and an eye. Should definitely finish the penis one. I should make time for that.

It was a night in Prague, or on two nights did I see this church. There is also a monument nearby for people who died. Not even sure anymore if it was because of communism or against Nazis. I have to ask to be sure. I will get back to this.
