… following the path …

last night the muse took over.. only went to bed around 2 a.m. finished 3 paintings which were kind of half finished… and started on a new one. .. well actually 2 new ones…… i want to show them to you here.. input is always welcome:) i notice that i seem to become more and more.. tribal.. or archaic? what is the right word for it? archetypal ?? anyway… have a look.. and let me know please 

i will give you some thoughts i have.. which doesn’t happen too often.. i know    … the finished ones are in the middle photo.. as i said.. very tribal.. i guess my living in africa for several years – and asia too of course – definitely influences me there.. these paintings are very.. raw in a way.. deep, go way way back.. generations back….. are emotional and highly symbolic.. they show guardians, spirits, protectors, they are in a dreamworld, an in-between-world, there is mythology in them.. greek, roman… and more.. further back.. shamanism and superstition…… i know they cannot be seen too cleary.. yet… the one on the left is a nature spirit.. the middle one.. the woman is the weaver.. and to the right are guardians…

the new one i started on last night.. is that face.. in the shadow.. not quite clear.. there.. and yet not. it symbolises fear.. we all know fear.. we all have it.. sometimes more.. sometimes less.. it comes out of the shadows before my three-monthly checkups.. will all be ok ?? .. sometimes it becomes big and almost overwhelms us.. then it grows small again and almost disappears…. almost… but never quite. but that is ok.. fear.. is also a guardian.. a friend even.. it should not be pushed into the shadows but be welcomed and accepted.. fear protects us from doing silly things.. rash things.. dangerous things.. fear make us think, reflect … fear should be embraced…because

the more fear is pushed away from us.. the bigger and larger it will grow.. becomes a presence.. ruling our life.. there is no need to be afraid of it .. smile at fear and make it your friend … ……. …. my technique here is again very mixed media.. and.. i put the brushes aside and used my fingers to paint.. so this is really very very personal… not quite finished… but not far from being completed………

… and now.. a mix of both ….

a mix of both? yes….. here in this painting i mixed “traditional” art and digital art… another form of mixed media thus ? i should think so.  the original was painted on canvas board, using acrylics and wax crayons. then i took a photo and uploaded this to my graphic program, where i added … just a bit. i did not want it to be too different from the original.. just a little tweak here and there.. prints, posters and products are available on RedBubble, Pixels.com and Society6
