Days of creation new(s)
About 2 years ago  I started with someone  pretending being my friend and student, a huge work about the Genesis. It was out of 7 canvases each one 190 cm x 120 cm. I started that job for he wanted to learn from me painting in a classical manner based on this work. For me it was interesting to manage such a large painting,  having a helping hand to do that lot of work and I could hand down some of my knowledge I have got from my education and my 30 years of practice and experience. We did an agreement but not a written contract, for I knew him for many years and thought he is a honest person. I learned to know him as he started painting some years ago, his knowledge about painting-material was limited on acrylics on instant canvases, as you can buy ready to use in craft-stores. I helped him to start his atelier and first painting exhibition by doing the invitation font, layout and photography. He got his first experience about oil-colours in a three days beginners-workshop I gave a few month before we started. His knowledge before based only on some (autodidactically) self taught experimental experience and a few informal paintings  he had done before we started.
He wasn't even able to do the scribbles and sketches before the main-work. So I gave him the idea what a scribble is and what it is good for and did the coloured sketches my by own at home, the large canvases we started later in his atelier.
… So the end of the story, some in this case unimportant details I left out, is that he broke the agreement and reclaims the work for him only. Till now after 3 offers to negotiate he refused, I 'll do a 4th and then I'll proceed against him, so I'm going to spend a lot of money to get some of my works back. After all if I'd get some of my works back I will not even exhibit them, for it would be too stupid to be set in connection with that guy any more. So I started a new smaller version, each canvas only 120 cm x 80 cm based on my sketches and the former composition, of course with some differences for I won't copy myself.
Here some photos of the scribbles, sketches and the process of painting of the old works that I quitted and  that never will be finished

Here are the last views on the former version from about 3 month before I stopped the work.
You will see from now on only the new version progressing.

Or even more so, how much your style is developed already. You have gone from some kind of surreality, to some kind of drastic abstract poetry in colours and shapes. Please do more ^^

You recognized that well :) I started with my surreal works in my youth with an eye on the phantastic realism of the school of vienna. (ernst Fuchs, Eric Brower but also F. Hundertwassers my early favourites :)
Surrealism leads to Dadaism and Merz, (K. Schwitters)and that ends at fluxus and the installations of Beuys.
Sometime I do holidays in informal painting as well :) or some naturalistic studies or a step back my roots.

Thanks for that nice comment
