The Return of the Landser, a ghost portrait I did in 2006 : a vision of all the couples separated by war.
Who died ? He or she ? The landser or his fiancee/ bride ? Or both ? Who is haunting the other ?
Don't know but since I painted them, they haunt me, they are ghosts in my flat, and I feel lot of tenderness to them.
(One day I will have to write how strange it is to live among my own paintings as they start slowly to speak to me and sometimes their meanings come later on
Paintings speak you know.
And it is fascinating to listen to them....
Take time to do that.
