The story  behind the painting:

Possession.  My name is Gustav. I am happy today but also a little bit concerned. Closing was yesterday, final papers received a Royal Seal and got filed today. Now I am the official owner of a little oasis in the Desert, with a creek, a few dozen palms end even a few orange trees. Hard work and dedication to my Lord had been rewarded, but I am worried if I am worthy of such a present. My Lord is very kind to me.  My friend Kiki says that I worry too much. (Allois & Jörge)
