Music To Dream Of Tiny Worlds By...

I cannot put into words my gratitude for your support. It meant much more to me than you will ever know. Thank you with all of my heart, which you have touched deeply.
Out of the most difficult times came my rebirth. My psyche reemerged stronger, clearer, exhilarated. Ideas that lurked in the back of my mind ventured forth and consumed me whole, demanding to be given life, to be made eternal on canvas.
I succumbed to their demands.

work in progress

I've had this feeling before. I've had it with this collection, and with this one.
And every time I get this urge to paint, painting becomes part of a cleansing process for me.
There has to be quiet around me. I have to be able to listen to what is going on in my head the whole time, and not to listen to it simultaneously. I find the best way to do that is listening to music you have listened to so many times, you can almost block it out as if it were really the sound of children playing in the streets, or owls hooting at night. But you have to love these songs immensely still, no matter how many times you have heard them before, they have to inspire you still, grip you within them and let your mind go at the same time.
A few of such songs that work their magic on me every single time:

Tool ~ Reflection
Tori Amos ~ Black Dove
Led Zeppelin ~ No Quarter
Blue Oyster Cult ~ Astronomy
The Cure ~ The Lovecats
David Bowie ~ Wild Is The Wind
The Doors ~ The End

I am going back to paint, paint, paint! (and to go on listening)


  1. i love your work! i find painting de-stresses me and helps me focus on my inner-being. i love how that feels... keep doing what you are doing - it's great!

  2. no wonder all your works are so gorgeous, every piece of them seems to have a sort of living entity within it, that's because of everything you put into your work, like a piece of you in every canvass, you are a true artist!

  3. glad your feeling inspired what wonders will you produce carnt wait to see x

  4. Promising work in progress! welcome back babe :O)
