Whispers from the Gallery

In the Advent calendar...

.. I found to my delight the published fotos from a project of artmajeur: "Behind the Canvas, Facing the Talent".

A painting for a good cause

"With the proceeds from online auctions and donations, 100 percent of which are passed on, United Charity supports children's aid projects throughout Germany, but also internationally." - I would like to make a contribution with an abstract picture "Positive Energy", which can be auctioned there shortly (End of December 2023/January 2024)  to give victims of violence, poverty, disasters, incurable illness and war at least a little break in the form of a free vacation. Many celebrities such as Barack Obama, Angela Merkel, Günther Jauch, Kevin Costner, Karl Lagerfeld, Dirk Nowitzki and Die Fantastischen Vier are or were also active in helping.

"Camera is running"

Actually, the focus in my studio is on painting - but this time the camera was moved into place: an official video shoot took place in my studio on behalf of Ars mundi, also on site in the studio. On the occasion of ars mundi's 75th anniversary, a video was made of me completing the unique serial "Seascape Sailing Impressions". Here you find the video on ars mundi.

Summer interview by artsolitaire

Here is a snippet (in german):

"Herr Peter Nottrott, wie kamen Sie zur Kunst?

Mein Vater hat sicherlich erheblich dazu beigetragen. Er war sehr kreativ und wollte selbst Kunstmaler werden, hat sich aber aufgrund der damals noch größeren Schwierigkeiten dazu entschieden ein - kreativer - Pastor zu werden. Er hat in seiner Familie viel Kreativität verbreitet und das Kreative bei uns Kindern unterstützt.


Was inspiriert Sie?

Viele Spaziergänge in der Natur führen zu ersten Eingebungen, wie ich Farben und Formen kombinieren möchte. Außerdem kann ich ganz gut träumen, was ja einen interessanterweise dazu führt, dass die Naturgesetze von Raum und Zeit nicht unbedingt gelten. Und ich mache mir zum Malen gern Musik an, meistens meditative und inspirierende Musik."

New maritime motif

For me, maritime motifs are a nice change from my focus, the abstract paintings. I have very productive motifs such as Seascape Sailing Impressions and Seaside Rendezvous, which enjoy a lot of fans and have been varied by me for many years. I paint the motif in different sizes, colors and structures. Now this summer I've decided to expand my maritime range; I was just on the small North Sea island of Amrum and collected maritime inspiration.

Painting with oil

No, there probably won't be any oil painted self-portraits of me.... on the right is a photo showing me in front of my oil painting. Whether abstract or landscape, oil paints make the pictures shine and shine. In no particular order I will add paintings with different motifs and formats. Having specialized in acrylic paints for a very long time, painting with oil paints is an enrichment that offers other possibilities that want to be (re)discovered.

Direct line: News from my studio

I have sent out my first newsletter, it will be read about three to four times a year, I give insights into my studio, present one of my favorite paintings, one of my motifs in variations or one of my formats and tell you something from the world of art , e.g. about abstract art, Vincent van Gogh, a color or or....

Raise the cups

At ars mundi, these cups, which come from one of my variations on the "Seascape Sailing Impressions" motif, stand among the drinking vessels of the "big ones" such as Picasso, Mondrian, Klee, Klimt, Hundertweasser, van Gogh or Macke. Then a "Cheers!"

Artgallery in a new outfit

The british art website has new software and a face lifting. All artists present themselves completely new with their pictures - so far there are over 20 Nottrott paintings, and I'm already "Artist of the Week".                                  

Nov 2022

New: smart in format under 1 qm

Energy Fields S 1 with 39.42 w x 19.7" h
Energy Fields S 1 with 39.42 w x 19.7" h

It's been a long time ago ... and brings fine variety and challenge again: I'm painting on (for me) small formats like 100 x 50 or 100 x 70 cm again.                                       

July 2022

I'll go shopping then...

It's time to put the thought I've had for a long time into practice: I want to paint some pictures with oil paints - the (solvent-free) paints are supposed to come next week, I'm really excited and looking forward to it.

June 2022

- It's really interesting to rediscover the oil painting              

                                                             techniques... the paintings are drying, getting more and

                                                             coming online in autumn!                                   July 2022

Art for Humanity

Many thanks to Singulart for a call which I am extremely happy to support with the successful sale of the painting "Positive Energy XL 2": Singulart is selling 100 paintings and 100% of the proceeds will go to Doctors of the World for humanitarian assistance in Ukraine.

Good start on Artsper, Paris

Step by step - I'm happy to start the collaboration with Artsper, my first paintings are online between works by Bansky, Andy Warhol or JonOne in a large catalogue of contemporary artwork. I' ve been happy reading this note: "I'm writing this e-mail to let you know that your artwork "Nature Symphony L 4" has been added         

                                                                   to "our  recommendations" on Artsper's website."                                             Feb 2022

Rediscovered motif

A skyline is always a question of the perspective of a big city. Everything can never be recorded, urban life is too complex for that, and the picture changes with the time of day and events or development time - or the colors...

Illustration: Peter Nottrott - Result of a telephone call with an idealist

Ms. Dr. U. Howard made a phone call six months ago - and she was convincing. The lady has considerable energy in her, does not let herself get down and has an unusual, interesting, very own way of looking at things and despite her age has not lost her idealism. For her book 'Corona', which has just been published by Winterwork Verlag, she asked whether it could be illustrated with Nottrott pictures: yes, she chose 10 pictures.

The wooden packaging of the paintings

When a painting is shipped, it should be securely packaged and arrive safely. However, I would like to counteract the wood consumption through the painting packaging: I supported a tree-planting campaign in Germany and made a global contribution to forest support.

New: painting with gold paint

Actually unusual for me: a few paintings were made with golden paint. Something different!  It is the beginning of the Golden Gallery.

Oct 2020

94.5 "w x 59.1 "h !!! Largest shipping format for stretched paintings

Now the shipping has been worked out and tested: I can even send these very large, 3.5 sqm paintings stretched. I am very excited about this opportunity because it is so customer-friendly. So I decided to swing the brush more often for this exact size. The packaged work in the photo has arrived safely in the USA and pleases the owner. > The link shows what else could be in this packaging.

Questions and answers

It was fun that interview with Mackenzie from Singulart! - published in the online magazine of Singulart.

How the object plan became a wall sculpture

awesome sculpture
Sculpture: Ensemble 1

It started with an idea in my head. At first I browsed extensively, sketched, teased and already shopped. In summer, the first wall objects will be created - the main elements will be wood and my abstract painting, so the plan.

The object became a sculpture ... with abstract painting, wood, accessories (real brush and realistic painted brush) and a certain spatial depth.

Selfmade VIDEO: a look behind the scenes in my studio, how an abstract painting was created ....

Composer, Producer and somehow the main actor ... I made a video of how the picture "Wonderful Dreamworld XXL 1" was made.

Singulart: internationl, high-quality and diverse - and Nottrott-paintings in the middle

Fortunately, Singulart came to me. A fresh and still young art platform with an art philosophy that goes far with my own. From now on I am also represented there.                                    > to Singulart                                   octoberr 2018

New motifs and formats from my studio

Midsummer is already over - from the first half of 2018, two creative innovations are important to me:

Waterfall, Worldmap & Co:
In abstract landscape painting and maritim painting I have found great new motifs and thereby implemented a kind of abstraction, which go energetic with lots of motivation by the hand.









The slim, elegant new large format has an edge length of approx. 200 cm and the second side varies between approx. 65 and 85 cm. And they have such a pleasing expressiveness !!

Advent: THANK YOU!!

I found these two in my advent calendar .......-

They are also a reason to say thank you for a great painting year. So many people have said yes to a painting from me -  a picture even went to Hong Kong. My joy is very great because it gives me the opportunity to create new paintings.

Come in and find creativity

2 interesting days full of creative art: 13 art studios of Holm 35  open their doors - of course my double door will be open, too.  A few paintings can be seen - it is a great opportunity to talk with people about art where art is born. Apart from painting, there are also studios where jewelery, textiles,mosaic and more can be discovered. Here you can find everything from big fine things to small colorful things, As a highlight the author Ulli Borchers reads some short storys  - written in Flensburg.

Moving of more than 300 paintings

Happy Easter
Happy Easter

The selection is getting bigger and bigger ... I was delighted to be able to correct the number of paintings of more than 300  (good feeling ..!).


But:  my painting storage is full.

And now I have found the enlarged "nest" for the paintings, even de luxe: ground level.

Be Inspired XL 1, created in 2017

I am going to be a chronicler: from now on, the gallery 2017 will be the place where all the works of this year will be collected. A variety of colors and sizes that will grow ... welcome to the current works.


Feb 2017

Post it to the USA,

..the UK, Dubai, Mexico, Australia or Estonia ... Today I have a mountain envelopes ready for the post office.

My English-speaking customers will receive mail in the next few days: a postcard depicting Nottrott paintings. It is a thank you - linked to the reference to my English website.

Open doors at the studio

2 interesting days: My studio in the artists' community of Holm 35 also opens its doors during the studio days of Flensburg.  A few paintings can be seen - it is a great opportunity to talk with people about art where art is born. Apart from painting, there are also studios where jewelery, textiles,

mosaic and more can be discovered.

The new M-format

My new M-format is up to 1 square meter -
For example I might use a canvas of say 120 x 85 cm. The painting of these formats is quite exciting, as if the artwork paints itself ... this way of working makes painting fun.

This format flatters any empty wall … The photo shows Summerfeeling M 2 hanging above a sofa.

New homepage twin in English: www.abstractpaintingsnottrott.com

Done! It’s online .... my own English website at www.abstractpaintingsnottrott.com


With 60% of my sales now going to international buyers, it makes perfect sense to offer English speaking art lovers a website of their own.
