Well - I never made my own paint ... always bought it. Studying the book "Farbpigment, Farbstoffe, Farbgeschichten" which is all about pigments and reading about Pfirsichkernschwarz (peach pit black), Traubenkernschwarz (grape seed black) and Kirschkernschwarz (cherry pit black). There is so much more to try. What a great book ... love it.
Spend several hours cleaning and re-arranging my studio. It is ready now for creating and presenting. During summertime next year I will paint the floor in a clean white color. Most of my artwork survived the transport from Detroit to Stadecken-Elsheim without any damage - some of it needs a little repair though.
These apples here in Germany taste so much better than Michigan apples. Especially the "Red Boskoop"...yummie. Even better than "Honey Crisp" apples. Guess what - the first piece of artwork I started back in Germany is all about apples!
