Geography


Aloha beautiful souls. It is amazing how one inspiration can be a beginning for next one. I am moving in my art around light and dark, birth process and journeys. This could be such a  precise description of my winter time. I am following my journeys in art. There are so many of them. They are deep and symbolic. Each of them is precious and unique just like life and creation in itself. I am happy to experiment with maps in my art as well. I studied geography and I forgot how much I used to enjoy it. It is nice to combine these two passions together. After 'A Journey to Birthlin' (which I posted on Monday) I painted a portrait on the Berlin city map and this time I called her 'Berlin'.

  1. Beautiful portrait with a nice look.

    Of whom shall I be happy debtor are friends
    that in their hands the only country I have.
    I debtor loyal people everywhere,
    Only those who know brotherly love,
    so is the geography of my heart ... (Lluis Llach)
