I love to explore new styles and techniques, but my heart truely belongs to bold and thick brush strokes of oil paint.

You all keep me going, really! Again, thanks you all for enjoying my art, your support is a gift to me! Cheers, Stefan
From April onwards, the "open air" and gardening season begins for me. I spend less time in front of the easel ... and as always, when I'm actually quite comfortable with a painting style (as in my current Fan Art paintings), this cheeky tormenting s...
