Katerina Wilhelmina Becomes The Inspiration Of German Artist Renate Esenwein
I have to inform you that for almost two years I have met on line with a remarkable German artist and wonderful human being Renate Esenwein.
From the moment she reached out to me via Instagram I felt her kindness, warmth and her passion for art. To my surprise I realized that we share the same passions: everything related to art deriving from the spirit of love with the sole purpose of getting people united around the world.
Honestly, I have lost my faith that hopeless romantics like me exist. It's hard for people to realize that there are people out there who live and breathe for art. Artists in my country are often mocked as daydreamers who waste their time living in a fantasy. Thank God there are people out there who keep the faith and close their eyes to the harsh reality and paint their lives instead with the colours they choose to use.
So, Renate Esenwein was deeply touched by a photo on my Instagram page (@katerinawilhelminaofficial) published on 7th February of 2019.
She asked me how it would feel if she created a painting for her art project then called "Deep Emotions".
I was flattered of course because I was really impressed by her work and portfolio. For those who are familiar with the work of Renate Esenwein, she is a very experienced painter with many exhibitions on her back throughout the years.
Esenwein is very creative by nature. She can create charcoal drawings, oil on canvas paintings, paintings on a tile, acrylic paintings on canvas and wood and ceramic art. Renate also creates covers for books.
I recently received an oil on canvas painting, a charcoal drawing, a piece of ceramic art - all accompanied with a card in which Renate Esenwein herself drew a heart with a sweet message included.
"Hello my dear Katerina,
you are getting a piece of my heart today, the sketch, the painting and a little ceramics. I hope that you take care of it and take care of you too. You are gone here but you stay in my heart. Kisses from Renate."
If you visit my Instagram account, you will watch a video I created for Renate Esenwein, where I demonstrate the lovely items she sent me.
I will close this article by using Renate Esenwein's words: "Always being focused on the light and the bright side of life, never changing... even when the days seem to be darker" and also a little reminder for those self isolated days due to The Corona Virus pandemic (quoted by Renate Esenwein): "Funny little things that make us happy are not expensive."
