  4. You are painting with such confidence ... you have grown immeasurably since I last came to see you. All of your paintings are lovely and, of course, I especially love the owl. I am intrigued by how you can paint those strait whiskers ... mine always have a kink or two in them :) Happy New Year, Silke ...

  13. Wow! I love the feeling of freedom that your gorgeous paintings express. Your use of colors is so vibrant and lively too. I've been wanting to do a video, but keep coming up with excuses, so you've inspired me to just do it. Happy New Year!

  15. Silke, your acrylic paintings are so bright, vivid, and beautiful. Since I do mostly watercolor painting, I was intrigued by your technique, using only 3 colors. I often do that too but I haven't been able to get the intensity that you get. Really beautiful works.

  16. I've watched plenty of videos and can tell you yours is fabulous especially for a first go (or second go, as the case may be;-) You speak clearly and straightforward, your lighting shows everything to advantage, and of course your paintings are so beautiful! I love learning a bit about your process and what paints you are using. The portraits are very good. Do you work from a photo or just go with a flow and what ever face comes out of your imagination? I hope you will continue with more videos. I love your style of painting and am proud to display your work on my wall. Thanks for sharing!

  17. Wundersch├Âne neue Arbeiten Silke und das Video ist perfekt geworden. Sch├Ân mal deine Stimme zu h├Âren und dich bewegt zu sehen. Dein Englisch klingt echt amerikanisch, aber die Aussprache ist so akzentuiert und ohne Slang und Worte zu verschlucken, da├č man auch als Nichtamerikaner jedes Wort sauber versteht. Bin gespannt was du aus deinem Bild im Hintergrund hervorzauberst.
    Frohes, gesundes und kreatives Neues Jahr dir und deinen Lieben.
    Liebe Gr├╝├če
    Sabine
