NO WAY! THIS IS AWESOMEEE!!!!! congratulations!! it's so exciting for me to see people I watch get DD's, credit where credit is due! this is a great piece, I'm sorry to hear about your cat. I have a cat too who is on deaths door with kidney disease, but since I'm taking care of her she has been stable, her brush with death makes me fear it even more now, I hope you are doing well.

Thank you so much for your comment! :) hope you are doing well, too. I'm currently busy becoming an art teacher and thus hardly have any time left for my art and this community. I hope your cat is still fine, too. Mine also suffered from kidney disease and died within three weeks, it was terrifying how quick it went. But that happened over one year ago now and I just felt the urge to paint this painting as a final goodbye. anyway, all the best wishes to you!

This is haunting, lovely.  It contains just enough traditional death imagery that I wouldn't be left completely guessing at the meaning, but  the other elements you combine with it are so unexpected for me that it makes it wonderfully fascinating, and of course surreal.  This painting feels like a death, a crossing over.  I think it really conveys how much your cat meant.

Ich liebe solche Bilder. Vor allem ist das nicht sofort zu durchschauen sondern lädt den Betrachter ein, sich mit ihm zu beschäftigen. Es ist, als ob der Verstand beim Betrachten des Bildes auf eine Reis geht. Wow!

danke! das ist auch meine Intention, dass man immer wieder etwas Neues entdecken soll und sich das Bild nicht auf anhieb erschließt. Und es ist immer schön, wenn jemand das zu schätzen weiß :)

Gerne geschehen. Ich finde solche Bilder auf jeden Fall richtig toll. Und wenn ich Ihre Bilder sehe, weiß ich, das man nicht immer nur Abstrakt malen muss, um diesen Effekt zu erreichen. Kann man Ihre Bilder auch auf ausstellungen sehen?

Danke :) im Moment stelle ich nicht aus, da muss ich mir mal wieder etwas organisieren. Ansonsten wären die Ausstellungen eher im Nürnberger Raum...

I like the sense of weird drama.  That elaborately-dressed weirdo in the other boat following that young lady -- I've got an inkling that dude is up to something!
