... and I am taking full advantage of it and taking a break. I will be sketching and painting as usual, visiting more Museums and other artists and generally taking a break. Taking breaks in one's schedule is important. It helps growth. Wishing all of you a great summer too. Take care and count your blessings!
I can never say this enough. Our thoughts create our reality. Expressing our gratitude for all the goodness in our lives, creates room for more. Being in the "Thank-you-mode" also helps us see any difficulties we may have in a positive manner and contributes to our well being even in troubled times. So here is to counting...
... tough people do.
Clicking through my files on the computer I found this sketch from last year. I did this during a visit to Chennai, India. This documents the pain, the tough times and the still tougher people. I dedicate this to all people going through a rough patch, taking that tiny little step, one step at a time. Before long the journey is done. Life is about the journeys and not always the destinations. Take care and much light!
... what would they tell us?
I was with my son at a near by children's play area recently. The soft sand at my feet felt warm. The logs and boulders strategically placed to mark the boundaries between the different play areas seemed quite out of place. We take our surroundings in our "modern" lives so much for granted and have lost that personal sense of belonging in the natural order of things.
I am an abstract artist living and working in Berlin. I paint colour fields and am knocking a dent into concrete art, non objectively so to speak! I work serially and can endlessly look for emerging patterns in my work.
