Featured Art: Dog barking at the Sea

Today’s featured art piece is an acrylic painting on brown package paper. (Title: “Dog barking at the Sea”) I started work on it while I was in Cyprus in Oct 2013. I was staying in an appartment close to the ocean, so close that you could hear the waves washing up to the shore. The appartment was in a tiny village and oftentimes you wouldn’t hear anything but the ocean, especially at night.

It was on one of those nights that I was lying awake in bed, and heared those waves in the background. Then, I heared a dog barking in the distance, and the two sounds came together. The thought of a dog trying to chase away the waves seemed obvious, but also quite absurd and interesting from an artist’s perspective. So I started painting, and finished the piece when I got home in Germany.
