Uh, I would like to post another one of my pictures, although I already finished it a couple of months ago. But I would appreciate your opinion about the subject.

Take care,

es ist super! ich finde die farben sehr wichtig für die theme. sehr interessant.

i like it! i think the color plays a vital role in the theme of the painting. interesting perspective too.

München? That´s not Germany, that is bavarian kingdom *laugh*
I live in Aachen for 2 years now. (Near the three-country-border, Holland and Belgium)

What did you see in the picture?

Liebe Grüße (Greets)

I see the decision to end the world coming from a few men who reluctantly press the "END-OF-THE-WORLD" button. Frightening possibility... or should I say, probability?

just some traditional german expressionist treatment of a serious social and technological threat.
I like the consistency of the work.

As it happened, I had a dream about a scientist who carried a rotten plant to a bunch of executives and then said "I´m sorry, Mr. President, but Earth is braindead now. You can switch of the machines".
The President of the United World sighed and pressed the button.

That guy under the table was Atlas, carrying the world (at least in the first sketches, now recognition dropped to zero because of big strokes and the gas mask I put on him)

I had that dream 5 years ago, but it hunted me for so long until I decided to draw it.

Thanks for your comments.

May you be in heaven an hour before the devil knows you are dead.
