Here is a piece of writing about the German Expressionist artist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. His lived quite an avant garde life in Germany but tired of the city and modern life and escaped to Davos to live in the country. Sadly his work was regarded as degenerate by the Nazi and he destroyed much of his work so as not to provoke them. This upset proved too much and his life ended shortly.

Saturday night 7 July 2012, I created this darker painting quite late in the early hours of Sunday morning. I'm intrigued by the use of a darker palette, not only for landscapes but for paintings in general. Ended the evening looking at some of Cezanne's paintings in particular a painting of his wife which I liked very much.
