Animals, nature, culture, food as part of the culture, these are my great passions and of course painting. With painting I can unite all my passions. With the exception of a detour into art pedagogy, my current skills are self-taught, i.e. with the help of my extensive collection of art books, both illustrative and theoretical. And of course tutorials, courses, workshops. I am a collector, not only do I collect art books, but also all kinds of drawing and painting supplies , I also have a wide selection of drawing software. After many years of traditional painting, I took my first steps in digital painting with Adobe Photoshop, I was fascinated by the possibilities and of course i had to come up with a drawing board. Today I use all the possibilities of Adobe Creative Cloud, mainly Photoshop, Illustrator and Fresco, on the I Pad I mainly use Procreate. Happy painting!

I've BEAN around the World
What better fits this time of year in January than a wonderful tasting and warming Ribollita, what means boiled again. Of course with lots of beans, white beans and in this recipe they are Great Northern Beans. In Italy, Cannellini Beans are used and the famous Ribollita comes from there, more precisley from Tuscany, but is popular throughout the country. Especially on the days of the blackbird, that are the last three days in January. Originally it’s a leftover soup which is served the next day with stale bread and sprinkles of olive oil.
Frankly, I've never heard of the rainbow diet, but instinctively I like to cook with just these ingredients. I also love colorful pictures. So what could be better for me to come up with a recipe for "the eat the rainbow challenge", to cook it and of course to illustrate it.
