Zaisersweiher, Germany













What a delight to recieve this card from Martin! On the back Martin has written 'These black and white greetings show a neighbouring village named Zaisersweiher (ink on paper).' From that description it sounds like a modest sketch but in reality it is very thick so perhaps it has been pasted onto board? I'm reminded of Cathy's words describing the back of another of Martin's cards as being like having a sample of his busy working studio, because it has some wonderful marks and textures, it's full of energy and industry. Also like Cathy, I put this on my mantlepiece, admiring the composition and the values, and then I found that it seems to change and reveal more details depending on the distance you are from it! It's a real treasure, thank you Martin!

Another wonderful card from Martin,full of mood,values and textures. I would have admired it on my mantle also, enjoying the hidden treasures within the painting. I do agree that it does look like it come out of a working studio,full of energy and industry.

Once again, Martin has captured the soul of the German countryside... I always think his bold marks present his wonderful forest or village landscapes exactly as they should be.

What a different card from Martin. How versatile he is. And how appropriate to use ink to match the place name. I wonder how that village name came about - it's intriguing.

Martin, I was so sure my message was accepted...it seems not!
A wonderful card, just as I expect, with your stunning black ink strokes! Love it!

I really love this postcard too. It has such a strong image. Martin if you see this could you let us know what you are using to paint on.

I love these landscapes of Martin's with the distant view coming forward to the beautiful detail of the immediate foreground. I still have my Martin postcard to look forward to!

Thank you very much for the compliments on a very,very humble drawing. Indeed the drawing is on a water color paper which was glued to a piece of card board.
