Nord-Ostsee-Kanal view from Gut Warleberg Obstcafé (Kiel) 70x50cm



It was summertime in northern Germany (yes summertime exists there too, although not many people know that, lol) we were together with a couple of very good friends in Kiel. They took us for coffee and cake to a Obstcafé over-viewing the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal (Gut Warleberg Obstcafé) not only was the range of the berry and cherry cakes divine but also there was room for the kids and the view was incredible. This view inspired this painting, which in the gloomy darkness of Hamburgs early winter I felt the urge to paint. [A.R.]
