Painting at Hof Butenland and Hilals sheep retirement home

From 04.08. to 09.08.2020 I was again at farmed animal sanctuary Lebenshof Hof Butenland and painted some of the animal inhabitants*. Afterwards I spent 3 days painting in the sheepfold home of Hilal Sezgin.

These were some of the hottest days of the year, so I was very happy to have added an easel parasol to my plein air equipment. The results can be seen here:

Here are a few impressions from painting:

“The position that non-human animals occupy in our cultural imagination is proof for how easy it is to accept the lower status of some beings without even a second thought.”
