  2010, The Four Hats, Oil on canvas, 100cm*80cm  

On a rainy holiday, postcard painting was announced. Franziska Bünz (age 14) had drawn something on her card, which
I found so very interesting that I first took a photograph and later created – with certain modifications – an oil painting.
The four hats are sitting on four heads like blossoms on a plant. A fifth blossom without head cover appears, perhaps to
emphasize the blossom similie.
