Wachau – Krems-Stein

The parish church Stein – St. Nikolaus was mentioned in a document in the 12th century, parish rights already from 1263 and the church was a vicariate church of Krems until the end of the 16th century. The Gothic choir from the second half of the 14th century and the late Gothic staggered hall from the second half of the 15th century have a late Gothic west tower. In the 18th century the church was baroque and regothic around 1900.

This church is worth a visit.

Winter in the „Waldviertel“

Winter in the „Waldviertel“, watercolor 9×12 inches

I love the wintertime especially in the „Waldviertel“ in Lower Austria. When there is a thin snow cover everything feels quiet and calm.

Wunderbare Winterlandschaften sind im Waldviertel zu finden. Wenn eine leichte Schneedecke die Landschaft überzieht wirkt alles still und ruhig.

Peonies are always wonderful for painting. Even at that time of the year they are only artificial.

Pfingstrosen sind immer ein schönes Motiv zum Malen, auch wenn sie um dieses Jahreszeit nur „artificial “ sind.
