New paintings 2016

In October this year I painted "Gastlosen from the Hohe Wispile" (below right), thus finally completing the quartet of Saanenland pictures which I had started eight years ago. All four subjects originate from two sunny autumn days in October 2007. Three were finished in 2008 and were shown at the Guild's 15th Annual Exhibition in Saanen near Gstaad. The fourth, already drawn on the canvas, had to wait until now, but the contrast of the wild, rocky ribs of the Gastlosen in the distance with the gentler hills around the Lauenensee remains very fresh in the memory.

#140, Saanenland I, from Hohe Wispile to Northwest (2008) #141, Saanenland II, from Hohe Wispile to Southeast (2008)
#142, Saanenland III, by the Lauenensee (2008) Saanenland IV, Gastlosen from Hohe Wispile (2016)

The first three: #140, #141 and #142 were shown in the 2008 GSBM Exhibition in the Museum der Landschaft Saanen, nr. Gstaad.
