Eternal Art inside the Ice Cave

There is a giant ice cave located right in the middle of Austria, very close to the world- famous town Hallstatt.
The structures and sculptures nature has created here are simply amazing…

Nepali Sketches

Whenever I travel somewhere, I take a small sketchbook with me. These sketches where done while travelling through Nepal, some of them on typical Nepali handmade paper.

Sometimes all it needs is a quick sketch of a remarkable scene, which you can later turn into a larger painting.

 

Lost Horizon Country

Nepal is a country of extremes. Snow-capped mountain ranges, tropical jungles, lush vegetation during monsoon season, colourful prayer flags flying in the wind – impressions even the experienced traveller will never forget…

Maritime Drawings and Prints

I want to take part in this year’s Hahnemühle drawing competition, whose topic is “Maritime”.

I’ve done some prints and drawings so far but I guess I will do some more for my competition entry…

 

Alpine Beauty

Hiking in the “Dachstein” region is just amazing – no wonder this part of Austria belongs to the world heritage sites. And if you´re not into hiking, you simply take the cable car uphill…

 

Rainy Day at the Lakeside

There is a beautiful little village at the “Traunsee”, called “Traunkirchen”, which I like to visit all year round.

Although it’s very nice there in summer, when you enjoy the cool breeze from the cold lake, only on a rainy day you will find this kind of mystical atmosphere…

Idyllic Austrian Village

We’ve got quite a lot of small and pretty villages here in Austria.

St.Wolfgang is probably one of the most popular ones with tourists because of its lake view and surrounding gentle hills and mountains.

At this time of the year it’s very quiet there as well…

 

World Heritage Region

Walking around the “Altausseer See” I took these pictures of the frozen lake and the surrounding forest. It was a sunny, even warm winter day and one could hear the sound of the melting ice of the lake.

I think you can easily see why this beautiful region is under protection…
