Alone. Not lonely. With art.
We give you a painting,
that you give away.
Give it to a person who is now alone:
Grandma, Grandpa, Mom, Dad, spouse, your child, relatives, friends, neighbors,
a person who is alone now, but should not feel lonely. It's your choice.
Loneliness is a gloomy disease.
You can make a difference, that it doesn't break out.
Why we want to give you this as a gift:
For two years we have been showing a new painting every day in our "Painting Log";
at an unusually low price. We do this so that many people can live with art.
Those who live with art will find different answers and questions.
That happens. And that makes us happy.
For us, it was also obvious that since the beginning of the pandemic,
we invite people to have a painting given to them,
so that they can give it to someone who has to live isolated, alone in the pandemic.
If you want to take a closer look at our Painting Log, welcome.
You can find all details here.
At the top of the menu you will find several tabs.
Examples of what kind of painting we would choose for your gift
can be found in the Painting Log archive.
We'll make it easy for you.
We are not living together. Now. Suddenly.
Many of us can't live near each other. We are alone and have to learn not to be lonely: grandparents, parents, relatives, friends, strangers and especially elder people. Every visit is a danger for them.
Fortunately, in many countries, the most important things are done for them.
But they must learn to be alone, but not lonely.
And the children, grandchildren, friends, must learn to bear that they must not be close to them.
More than mottoes, quick advice, apps, or forgetting, art helps against loneliness. It helps to create an intuitive dialogue with oneself in a comfortable and friendly way, just like it has done since ancient times.
We are entirely sure of this and contribute to it:
You decide to give a painting to someone who needs to learn not to be lonely. We enclose a small, useful piece of advice, how to enter into a dialogue with a painting efficiently. And have so much better chances to be alone with yourself, but not lonely.
(We will send you the little advice too. Perhaps you will then want to chat with the presentee about your experiences with a painting. This could work wonders.)
Please write "gift" and maybe "grandma" or "grandpa" or "girlfriend" or whoever you want to give a gift to.
We will then choose a fitting painting and do the rest.
We only charge the postage.
