The Decency

Tomorrow is my open studio and I'm ready for it! All the art hangs in place, I scrubbed to the floor, filled the refrigerator and did a bunch of other chores as well. A lot of people already said they love to come and I'm looking forward to welcome all my guests. I'm not sure if I can post any new paintings this weekend, we'll see how that goes.

In any case my latest larger sized painting The Decency will be shown tomorrow. It took me about two months to complete it, but I defenitely like the results. My work is often about the indiviualism of todays society and I'm not the only one who noticed this. A lot of people talk about showing more respect to one another. Still I feel that respect is something you have to earn. Therefore I feel that decency and good manners might be something we need even more than respect, because those are things we all can show instantly. It doesn't have to be big things. Opening a door for a lady is big enough for me.

As I said The Decency is part of my open studio this weekend. Of course you're cordially invited, but if you're not able to come or just curious, here's a survey complete with my personal comments of all the works shown this weekend:
