Malen war fuer eine gewisse Zeit wegen des Schreibens in den Hintergrund gerückt. Die Vorbereitung fuer meine Solo-Ausstellung ist angelaufen.

NEU - Kinderbuch, nun erhaeltlich:
...Was verbindet ein Kind in London mit Dresden und den kanadischen Waeldern. Was ist ein Schneeklo? Und, bitteschoen, was sind "Pueree-Bienen"? Eine Geschichte in einer Geschichte, die mit einem energischen "Nein!" beginnt. Wird sie mit einem ueberzeugten "Ja" enden?...
Die deutsche Version meines Kinder/Jugendbuches (ab 8 Jahren) ist nun veroeffentlicht.
204 Seiten und Illustrationen. Die englische Version ist in Arbeit - nun geplant fuer Spaetherbst 2020.

There had been a break from painting as I was writing to finish this children's/youth book project. Preparations for my solo exhibition in September 2020 have started,

... What is the connection between a child in London and Dresden and the Canadian wilderness? What is a "snow toilet"? And, what the heck are "pirate-mitten"? A story in a story. It all starts with a headstrong "NO!". Will it end with a convinced "Yes"?...
The German version of my children's / youth book (8 years and beyond) is now published.
204 pages and illustrations.
The published English Version is now planned for late fall 2020.
