I would love to paint all days but ... sometimes I'm occupied with other things that are necessary as well.

On January 21 I had an Open Studio to promote the Trapani Project with showing my entries. Paintings and studio logs as well. The show started at 10.00 a.m and I still felt pretty much tired ... so I posed as a guardian in a museum.

From the beginning people were queueing up for to have a look into the studio logbooks. I hadn’t expectet them to be such an attraction.

Well, after a while my studio was packed with people I’d never seen before. Obviously people who were invited by people that were invited.

Around a huge Italian (!!!) bread and prosecco etc. people discussed a lot. In the center you see Sebastian, my Woyzeck model.

Actually I like Open Studio. It’s such a good atmosphere in the room I’m working in alone all the time. And meanwhile I like to have the walls painted yellow.

Oops, so much people. One can hardly see the paintings. Here my wife Brigitte talks to Sebastian.

It’s clear that on this day I had to explain the Trapani idea again and again. But that did not hinder the man I am talking to spontaneously buying Brueghel’s Method. And should I really have said no? So this painting unfortunately will not have the chance to ever see Trapani.
