  2001, The Straw Doll, Oil on canvas, 80cm*80cm  

The reason for this picture was a straw doll. I caught her at the 2001 Cologne Carnival Parade. I liked her so
much – with her green hat and her crafty eyes and ball nose – that I selected her for the center of this drawing.
I sat her head over a suspended body and placed two admirers, one on the right and one on the left. One can
also see that she, with her friends, will float on Ash Wednesday into heaven.
