That strange feeling that everything I write has to be somehow important, that every image I take has to be ‘special’, that every painting I make needs to convey a deeper meaning…the same trap I had fallen into once before – it got me again. Yes, you can call me stupid, I deserve it 😉
It kept me from just enjoying myself and this has to change. My absence from this blog and Social Media over the last few months gave me time to focus on what I really want to do. But I also realized that while I only create for myself now I miss sharing what I learn and do with those of you who are interested. Not because I need the likes or followers but because I have this undying hope that maybe an image or a poem or a blog post of mine might make a difference for someone and because I want to document my journey and this blog will be as good or maybe even better than any other place to do this. Oh, and I always love reading your thoughts and comments 😊
I will always be an idealist, striving to create something that might make a difference…maybe I will never know if it does but I cannot deny myself the hope.
I have not figured out exactly how I am going to use this blog and if it will be more like a real journal or rather like ‘snapshots’ or essays with images so you will see me trying different things over the next weeks to see what works best for me. Let me know what you think. 😉
I am definitely going to update my portfolio and also include more of my recent paintings.
Here a little selection from a series of imaginary landscapes that will most likely be called ‘The Stillness Beyond”
These are the kinds of images I love to paint when I need some time alone to reflect.
