"New Ways"

My life seems to have become cluttered lately with piles of things that unexpectedly need to be done. We're living in a world that is spinning very fast right now and peace-loving people can sometimes feel overwhelmed by it. 
I'm one of them. I love to put my heart into doing things, especially my art, and it can be really hard to reconcile that with a pile of tasks that suddenly grew in front of me. 
But I have learned that there is one good thing which this chaos may bring. Whenever I feel overwhelmed by all this, it usually means that a positive change is coming. True, many things have piled up, but by sorting this clutter I will discover some new ways that will change my life for better. 

And through this chaos I will find an order.

This is my latest painting. Now, you may remember that some time ago I showed you my work titled After Sunset. I must say, I was so inspired by that event then that I've decided to try and make another work about that magical moment. I hope you'll enjoy this one as much. 
I do :)

Still Life with Bread and Stones

It may look like an ordinary still life, but for me this painting is a metaphor of a moral choice, a choice between love and hatred. 

The bread symbolises love, because it can be shared. Love makes people become one, so I've decided to paint the bread in one piece with a bright interior shining out. 
Stones are often connected with violence and hatred. It's the oldest weapon in history, (too many times used by people against each other). In contrast to the bread I have painted several stones, which show that people blinded by hatred are always divided. 

Hatred means chaos, while love means peace, harmony and prosperity.

3 Sketches of a Nude

Today I'm showing you three sketches of a female nude. They are all made with charcoal, which allows creating very deep as well as very subtle shades and a lot of different lines and textures. 

all three: 15x20cm, charcoal on paper

We have an anniversary today. It's exactly three months since I made my first post on this blog. Thanks for being there and sharing your thoughts, not only on my blog but also on your blogs. You are all very inspiring for me and I'm happy that I can be in touch with all the great things you do. Thanks again and have a lovely week! :)
