John-Paul made a suggestion on the forum (Artists Café, Reviews etc.) that is worth thinking about. To be honest the suggestion of a new project is still nebulous. So it's up to us to ponder on it for to make the contours a bit sharper.

Well well, pondering on this new project that John-Paul suggested. This of course needs a clear surrounding that maybe will rub off on my thoughts to make them clear as well.

Hanjo, presumably you were referring to this: [LINK]. My question is, what was the significance of lemons on your professional strategy meeting table? Maybe you were already anticipating a sour result?

I can’t help but thinking seems to be much more difficult than painting. Thinking alone in particular. So what I need is a strategy meeting with my alter ego.

My, this looks really professional. So this strategy meeting can go on for hours without any distraction, disciplined and sober.

Very important is to have pointed pencils. So there is need for a proper sharpening. I like the old fashioned method with a knife. It’s much more sensitive than with these machines.

With a pointed pencil one can expect to write down pithy ideas. Guess this pencil was a gift I got from Christina when visiting her and Patricia in Rome.

Everything is there what a proper conference needs. Paper, a pencil, water and a glass to drink from. Well and cigarettes. But they are only for me. My alter ego is not allowed to smoke. Otherwise it will do nothing else I’m afraid.

Well, I forgot to tell you that my alter ego is female. Oh Come on, you should have guessed. It’s the Ying and Yang thing you know. So we have to have another arrangement haven’t we? At least for my alter ego brought these nice flowers. Mmmm what a wonderful alter ego ...

Looks much more friendly now. I mean being disciplined and sober is a good thing but on the other hand a nicer atmosphere will maybe trigger better ideas.

And this typical south German brezel isn’t bad either. It looks as entwined as the problem ahead but one can eat it easily. Okay, I will tell you later what came out of this little cosy conference (if there was coming out anything at all) ...

So for the moment there is nothing else to do but going back to work again. There is still one painting missing in that "Square Meter" series I want to show in October.
