Between fear and hope

Last summer I made this very personal painting,  which was born during the Vedic Art course and which I finished in August.

The painting consists pieces of an old painting on paper, roughly 100 by 100 cm, which depicted my dream  of at that moment in 2012 when I joined the first Vedic Art class. I longed for space and love. Loveing and accepting myself that is.

I took this painting, I teared it up in pieces and integrated it, together with sand, stones and dried flowers onto the canvas, this year even bigger than my work back then, 200 by 100cm. I used acrylic and different techniques. In the middle you can see my feet and hands, with my hands looking almost  like a the wings of a butterfly. What is it that they say? Happiness is in your own hands.

Looking at it, I can see my fears on one side and hope on the other, with me balancing in the middle. Sometimes crawling and sometimes flying toward my dream, my real Self.

“In transition”

Today I turned a old painting of mine into a new one. It seems like there is a pattern going on.

Me finding old paintings, painted years ago and turning  them into something new. Everytime the result seems a suprise, but then again it was already there, like a flower bud slowly opening and showing her beauty.

Perhaps  this is the reflection of my very own life path, I am in transition.

Fertility

I just finished Fertility! I started last night until 02:00 AM, had some sleep and started again at 08:00 AM. The first layer I applied with a roller at my Vedic Art course in June. The next layers are entirely painted by feet and hands. At night I just threw/dropped the primary colors on the canvas and just started walking around and around. Whilst walking in circles I suddenly started run, tramp, hop and toddle around. Slowly I could see the womb, and a figure.

In the morning I continued by tapping some paint by hand on the womb followed by carefully dropping the paint around the figure, and stamping around with my feet. At last I saw a female, with red hair, With much care I pounded the red paint around her shoulder, neck and head.

More professional photographs are being posted  after the summer, for I am looking for a photographer.
For now: Have lovely Sunday!

 

Discovering new hights

For the first time I worked on such a large canvas, a bit more than 200 cm high and 100cm broad, and I am happy, very happy. This painting was made a couple of weeks ago, during my Vedic Art course. Which is taught by the delightful and spiritual Anja Atulya in Delft.

I just threw the paint on the canvas and rolled it with roller. Still needs to be stretched out on a frame.
