Our homes for the week, Foto Astrid Volquardsen
There are painting workshops who will leave a deep impact on the artist soul and this journey to the island of Rügen was one of them. A truly remarkable group, super weather, wonderful place, hard working students, good food, easygoing laughter,…did I forget something? Ah, sore muscles as well from carrying the material. Never trust a teacher when it comes to distance. But the most beautiful paintings came into existence down at the coast. Some motives are worth the pain.

We met the usual bunch of people with all kinds of comments but the house owner in Groß Stresow will be kept in my memory.

Just when we needed it the most he showed up with a pot of coffee.
Dear workshop participants:Thank you for being part of this group. This was a a »living in the moment« experience.
