Hanseatic Art Gallery -- Summer 2012 Oil Painting by Karsten Topelmann
On her summer visit to Ephraim, daughter Lisa expressed a wish to her father that he enshrine the gallery in an oil painting. After all, she said, this is a beautiful, historic, century-old building with lots of character. And the gallery has been a part of our family's life for over forty years. Karsten liked the idea. Over the summer the painting progressed from Lisa's wish to Karsten's concept to a completed work of art. Oil on linen. 16"x20".
