New painting finished

'Scotland', mixed media on canvas, 140 x 175 cm, Rainer Schmitten 2015
A friend asked me to do a painting for him after having seen one of my abstracts in the studio.

The result is my very personal view on the story of his life since I know him.

Going back to where he comes from, the colors and structures are inspired by the UK's coastline, his way to Germany - caused by love, a broken and a evolving relationship, resulting in the birth of new life.
