Bergell and Savogno







Memories of this week from Monday to Thursday when I
was in Arcadia! And suddenly everything is covered in snow.
Savogno is a beautiful mountain village in the Italian Bergell. no
Carriage road up there. A beautiful trek leads 
steeply up from Villa di Chiavenna through wild 
chestnut forests. Black and white spotted goats
roam him. Lizards sun themselves.
In the Swiss Bergell in Maloja, the blue Lake Sils.  
The mountain "Piz Lagrev" dominates everything.
 
Erinnerungen an diese Woche von Montag bis Donnerstag, als ich
in Arkadien war! Und plötzlich ist jetzt alles eingeschneit.
Savogno ist ein wunderschönes Bergdorf im italienischen Bergell. 
KeineFahrstrasse  da hinauf. Ein herrlicher Wanderweg führt 
von Villa di Chiavenna steil hinauf durch wilde Kastanienwälder. 
Schwarzweiss gefleckte Ziegenherden
durchstreifen ihn. Eidechsen sonnen sich.
Im schweizerischen Bergell, bei Maloja, der blaue Silsersee. 
Der Berg "Piz Lagrev" überragt alles.

Not Like Us - ArtRage






Poverty and corrupt power relations of
irresponsible politicians are the sworn enemies  
of this peaceful giants.  
Homo sapiens (intelligent viable / wise man) called
Us 1758 the scientist Carl von Linné Ideals are difficult to reach.

Painted in ArtRage.


Here are the pencil drawings.
Originally I wanted the group of figures on a small hill
place, before the wide plain of Rwanda. Then I'm looking for a
chose "hidden" and thus more intimate jungle representation.
