As one might have noticed, it has been a bit quiet after my latest painting Fertility.
This is my last painting for now. It was a hectic period: a intense Customer Care job, painting, exhibiting and working on my website/social media. So I decided to paint after my holiday which will start on 12th September until the 23rd.
Then all will start again: work, painting and keeping you all posted, sharing my work.
I decided not to exhibit until perhaps next year, or the year after next year. I found out that the cost and energy put in an exhibition/Art fair does not satisfy me as much as the painting process itself.
The feeling when finally a piece is finished, that connection I feel with Life itself, is irreplaceable.
To share that feeling and the emotion with someone, who perhaps can relate with that moment is just magnificent.
Lately, I learned the truth that although some people do like my work, there are none who would like to invest in my work. So I went into a bit soul-searching and found out that I am happy with that.
If my work can touch some ones heart, mind or even soul, that is a bliss.
That is where I want to put my energy, time and money in: in painting, in trying to get that emotion out there on the canvas. And let’s be honest, that can be a hard, painful journey full with ups and downs and doubts. To be a humanbeing can be hard enough.
So just 4 days and then I am off to Corfu. In the midst of mountains and the sea I will relax and enjoy myself, thankful for the journey so far.
Thank you all for reading and liking my posts!
