I have added to my website the category »collector’s items« where I show a selection of already sold work. The idea arose to ask my collector’s what moves them about that special painting that now has found a new place in their homes.
The series starts with Peter Mackens from Hamburg who took me completely by surprise with his reaction. As soon as he saw the painting he stepped on bord and was gone – far far far away from the seashore and it took him a while to finally step back on land in my living room.
The most beautiful feedback I could get.
Under Sails (IV), Pastell, 50×75 cm, 2010
Unfortunately I haven’t found the time to translate his words but I will do this as soon as possible.
Auch ich liebe dieses Segel sehr. Es ist eines meiner absoluten Lieblingsbilder von Dir, Astrid.
auch mich hat dieses Bild sofort eingefangen. Ich fühle mich Segelschiffen und dem Segeln sehr verbunden und kann den Text von Peter Mackens sehr gut nachempfinden.
