Dear weather god, this is just to let you know: I am ready for summer now! And you gave us 12 degrees Celcius! Really? It’s 24 in Deutsche Mark, but this joke isn’t funny anymore.
I am so excited and would love it if you let me know your thoughts about my newest idea: I thought it would be great if I could wear my art like my own little gallery, give it a meaning and not only blogging about it. So I took my four favourite overpainted photographs and let them digitally and professionally scan. After that one of them got a new live on a t-shirt.
When I picked up the t-shirt the guy in the print shop asked me how I created the design and he was wondering if I used Photoshop. No, I didn’t!!!! It is oldschool: Polaroid and acrylic, nothing more! 🙂

Hands up: who else is still loving vinyl? Recently I asked my parents if they could give all the vinyls from my childhood to me. And tadaaaaa I am now the proud owner of a lot of music from the 1970ies and 1980ies… operas, classical music, rock and pop. The clicking of the record’s lead-out gives me the strange feeling of a place where the world seems better.
The photograph is the complete contrast to the object. I love succulents because of their clear, sharp, and structured leaves. This plants don’t need much – and so the overpainted photograph reflects the colours of the plant and nothing more. There is only one eye catcher: the frame.
