We went on a crazy roadtrip the year before. The experience of travelling and painting was incredibly rewarding. In order to push myself, I decided to paint one wall each month, not counting spots I’ve painted before.
This challenge required quite some planning, especially in the colder months. Every travel was an opportunity to paint and vice versa. I knew it will be tough, but amazing at the same time. I ended up painting in France, Malta, Morocco, Germany and Switzerland.
A big thanks to my friends for painting and tavelling with!
While Switzerland was still snow-packed, we drove off to Nice in southern France for a weekend. We had a crazy seafood platter, made some new friends in the pub and I pocketed my first piece this year.
Ordering a pizza to a place under a motorway bridge was as much fun as chatting with the local police.
There was only time for a quickie on this short weekend trip to Germany. But hey, I just scored wall number 8.
With a trunk full of cans, we headed for Lausanne in the french speaking part of Switzerland. We met a friendly local artist and muddled through with the little french we remembered from school. It was cold and wet but the wall turned out great.
Absorbed by the christmas madness, nobody wanted to travel with me in December. Obviously it was too cold to paint somewhere nearby. I couldn’t give up now. I was so close to my goal of 12 walls, one each month. So I drove off to Ticino early in the morning and came back late night. The weather was awful and it was dark by the time I finished my piece.
I hated myself so much for my stubbornness. This is the only picture I took.
