           109cm x 148cm, pastel-painting “without title”. made in march 1976

Worldwide there are only 20 artists who are able to paint pastel in such big sizes, especially my technics in painting smooth backgrounds is unique. I made from 1974-1978 about 30 big pastels and 40 smaller ones. The samller ones were sold in the 70’ for circa 800-1000$ each, the big ones for 4.500$ in the beginning.Later in the 80’ i sold them for 12.500$. In 1983 i stopped all activities in making, exhibiting or selling art.
