'Oslo' story

It is always nice to give away or sell a painting. However it is a bit hard sometimes to let the painting go because it is a part of me in many ways. The emotions and memories are gathered in every painted piece. But it is always nice to share the energy of a painting with others. I do not know personally buyers in most of the cases. So I always hope that they like and enjoy my paintings. First time I had an opportunity to deliver personally my painting to the buyer who I have never met before. This is where the story of 'Oslo' begins or ends....
Few hours before the delivery of the painting I had spoken to my friend. We were talking about past, mistakes and regrets. I told my friend that I do not regret past, even if I made many mistakes especially in my twenties but without all those mistakes I would not be where I am now. 'Oslo' the painting is the best example for that. If I did not go to 'Oslo' few good years ago,  I would never paint 'Oslo' and 'Oslo' would have never found new owner. 
The lady who got 'Oslo' is an artist. I completely fell in love with her paintings. She told me that she never buys paintings of different artists and 'Oslo' is her first one. First time she saw 'Oslo' months ago at the Engine Shed exhibition. The place did not accept cards so she could not get it. Second time when she saw 'Oslo' was just before final closing of The Engine Shed' (my last exhibition there). So this time she decided to get in touch with me and ask about 'Oslo'. Maybe 'Oslo' has belonged to her from the first time when she saw it.Maybe everything has got its own story, place and time to be.

Moon stories III

I discovered that all my moon stories are connected. One story became a beginning of another. Synchronities happen also in art. My last moon story is about changes and connection with myself and nature.

There is also another story which I would like to share. Not mine this time, however it became inspiration for moon stories. It is Samuel's (age 2)  moon story which he painted. I absolutely love it and still inspires me.

Also I rediscovered a joy of playing instruments and how beautiful and magical sounds they carry. I owe this rediscovery to Samuel. He shares his love and passion to music so deeply that he puts the joy of playing music  back into my heart. I am so grateful  for meeting Samuel in my life.

Few days

Scott and I spent few days at the North West of Scotland. Every journey, just like every day brings something. We nourished our spirits with writing, sketching, doing time lapses of night sky covered with stars and we took photographs which later would become inspirations for my paintings. We captured and preserved moments of beauty, stillness, being in the wilderness. We love it!
I wish I could fully describe the sound of the ocean waves, turquoise colour of water and smell of the air up North. Those will be forever captured in my heart.
