Artists on German TV – Graeme Stevenson and Yemi Tubi

I have got my own series of films for a German tv channel. The programmes presenting artists belonging to AERA the Association Embracing Realist Art have been broadcast on a German TV channel. Once a month a new member will have his or her work put in front of a wide audience. I have added German subtitles where necessary to make it accessible to viewers who are less fluent in English. The productions will not only be shown on the German TV channel several times over but they have also been entered into the station´s free public media library.

Furthermore Zattoo offer a live stream for subscribers in Europe. You can register for free. It will give you access to 89 tv channels. One of them is NRWision which features our AERA programmes several times a month.

You can also view the two most recent 20 minute videos by clicking on the following images.

Still Life Series – Ice Age

painting by Pat Harrison aka Rainer Hillebrand

Ice Age

This still life painting shows a chocolate ice cream floating through space. We may not be heading for an ice age as the title suggests but the summer heat waves will certainly prompt us to ask for lots of ice cream.

The painting is 13x18cm in acrylics on canvas panel.

I love still lifes which are so different from my larger landscape paintings. They make me explore new textures and shapes. These new challenges help me to improve my skills. Collectors of still lifes often look for the unusual so here is one.

You will find more of my paintings when you click here. The original and limited edition prints are available upon enquiry.
