Each one of us can be tranquil and serene in the face of the most pressing difficulties and demands. Serenity and tranquility are contagious, just like smiles. If we smile at a person, they will smile back. Here is to spreading a little serenity and tranquility. Much light.
Wherever we may be, there is always something about watching the sun rise. This great ball of fire, the source of all life-giving energy on our planet, reminds me of the close connections all of us have, to the ultimate source of life.
All of us are vibrant beings of energy and our life is a manifestation of our own "wavelengths".
This week let us "vibrate" well and manifest all that we wish for. Much light.
I saw this sculpture at the Bröhan Museum, a private collection that documents the history of art in Berlin around the turn of the 20th century. I am increasingly becoming aware of the very important role private collectors play in art and how important it is not only to artists, but also to mankind at large to document the happenings of our times, by buying art, by preserving art.
This sculpture by Grawe for e.g. documents the difficult times of the Twenties right after the First World War. A feminine figure reaching out in desperation.
Now that I have moved my atelier to the Tegel area in Berlin, and have a fifty minute suburban ride, I use the time to doodle in my little book.
This time I recorded the flora alongside the S-Bahn tracks. Most of them are still without their foliage. The city is still devoid of all green and has an ugly grey hue engulfing it.
Wish the sun would be back, even if very pale: at least there would be some warmer shades of gray.
I am an abstract artist living and working in Berlin. I discovered my love for sketching only recently. I hope I will be able to portray a little of my life in Berlin and my travels in Europe through my sketches and this blog.
