Little Sunday Installation
Landscapes do need more attention!
I know even for those who like the Landscapes more than nude man painting, are more atracted by a nacked body than by a nacked tree. And everybody is facinated by whats forebidden. That was the reason for the little Sunday Installation: One Landscape was undercover. I just wrote: "Adults only!" on the canvas ... and it worked. Whatever People expected, it was not another Landscape,... but it was one. This little forebidden sign was like a magnet. And the covered painting was very happy to get so much attention...
