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.
More and more people seek help to their personal, everyday issues through bettering their environment, including homespace, that obviously influences the way we think, feel and act. Something made by hand carries a different force and effect than the colour and material of a random couch or table. Many artists are studying art therapy to make the best for humanity, and earn their own plus points for it, as well. That is just fair.
...a more colourful place to live in. Painting can be considered such a small-scale thing, a decorative element in your room, really, but what's possible to do with it, is grand - the change it brings with it, the time it lasts, the quality it brings to your space experience, is otherworldly.
