Cherrytree / japanische Kirsche

I pass her nearly every day on my way to work. Nowadays there are lots of geese around. Perhaps she likes the company?… Two statues / Zwei Statuen weiterlesen

#30x30DirectWatercolor2018 19

A statue in the park showing Adam and Eve after they lost their paradise. The artist Peter Breuer did such a good job back in 1894 that the scene is really heartbreaking. And the back of Eva is a real eyecatcher 🙂 . Diese Statue im Floragarten stellt Adam und Eva nach der Vertreibung aus… #30x30DirectWatercolor2018 19 weiterlesen
