At the sea

This goes to a friend of mine who said, that looking at the distance of my pastells gives him so much energie and strenght. Can there be a greater compliment?

    That is a great quote! I peer at the distance, looking for something. What will I see over the horizon, I wonder.

    You observe the marine colors so well – I am amazed by that. I grew up at the beach, you know – so I know those when I see them and you have them here. Except that you also create extra interest by bringing the foreground "up" with the warmth. Marvelous.

    Hallo Astrid, es ist unglaublich toll, was du in der letzten Zeit alles geleistet hast. Glückwunsch.

    Aber Deinen Himmel, das Wasser, die Weite in Deinen Landschaften habe ich vermisst. Jetzt sind sie endlich wieder da.
    Danke, Sonja

    Hallo Sonja,
    die Abwechslung tat gut und irgendwie ist es dann doppelt schön zu alten Dingen zurück zukehren. Ein "Klassiker", wie Marc sagte.

    That is, indeed, a great compliment. This is really a great piece, I feel as if I could get lost in the sea's vast expanse forever. I'm delighted to have found your blog and looking forward to visiting again soon!
