Whenever I lose motivation, which doesn't happen often, but sometimes it still does, I get inspiration from the extracts of Leonardo Da Vinci's notebook, dating back to 1490s. His to-do list was perhaps even a little bit bigger than mine. When you feel down, just read it and blossom!
All modern painting fans most obviously know who is Gerhard Richter and which are the paintings exhibited by him in the shows of past few years. For those who do not, I make a long story short. Gerhard Richter is a German visual artist, who has been creating both photo-paintings and abstract paintings. He has said that the photograph is the most perfect picture because it is an absolute.
Take painting with two kids under three as a training to be UNSTOPPABLE, which you are if you want it enough. After that, noone is ever going to say I don't have enough time so that you would consider it serious. The only way to achieve the outcome of your thought manifesting in reality is to actually practice creating something step by step, even if the gorilla gets in your room.
There's a huge difference between the standard of living and the standard of life. While the first allows us to surround ourselves with plenty of pretty stuff, most of it stays hidden in the drawers, cupboards and garages. The second on the other hand is focusing on what can be perceived with all our senses.
My second child, Ekke, was born on 16th of July. Welcome, Cancerian Rainbow boy! There is so much in common between creating a human being and creating a painting. All is letting life come through. Isn't it strange how mothers/creators talk about birthpains and suffering (of an artist), but none focuses on the pains of the newborn. It must be a huge thing coming onto this planet. All the atmosphere changes to bare!
WABADUS means LIBERTY in Estonian. There is a beautiful, electrifying meeting place in the heart of Tallinn, on Freedom Square, called Wabadus. The tables there are covered with delicious food. And the walls now, with my art.
If love can be blind, can faith be that as well? We all know the term blind love. If one would call a belief non-realistic, (s)he would be labelled an atheist. An atheist's belief would be blind just the same, as it cannot be proven (s)he's right. Wouldn't it then be just an accurate consideration, that no man can be understood as righteous unless claiming himself free of all blindness.
