non-figurative water color painting. So the way I painted in 2008/2009 hat an almost 100 year old tradition, this kind looking back on the Delaunys, Feininger and Klee. There is nothing really new about it, but as my husband likes a smaller version (postcard size) of this painting so much, I answered his request by creating this large acrylic painting. You can conclude on the size from the newspaper you see at the lower left corner. It will decorate our bedroom and hopefully not disturb our sleep with its outburst of rays and colors.

|Watercolor, 30x42 cm, approx. double letter size|
Funny: This exhibition inspired me although I did not like most of Wols' work. His older watercolor and pen drawings are no different from the things that all the people draw after smoking grass (no idea if he did). His later watercolors are extremely charming and remind of Paul Klee's work. His larger paintings are obscure and show a violent temper with the paint flung and splashed onto the canvas, they are carved with scratchings and big blobs of paint which must have taken ages to dry.
