Noon. No one around. I walk this path, deep into spring. An unending, green dream.
A sunny, warm spring day. It is quiet in the forest, not a breath of wind, no one to be seen. As I walk deeper into the forest, the young greenery closes me off more and more from the busy world. I walk on slowly, as if in a dream....
Stillness in your heart The roots of a tree in a November storm
In all the turmoil of the world, there are trees that remain standing perfectly straight. Offering protection and holding on no matter how severe the storm rages around them. Deeply rooted, connected to the earth and to the trees around them. Find what connects you to the earth and to people around you, find your stillness. Cherish it and hold on to it. If something or someone doesn't bring you stillness, let go.

If you follow me on LinkedIn, you've already seen over the past week that I've set up a fundraiser to help the people of Ukraine and those who fled the war in that country. I will be donating the proceeds from a large series of artworks to the International Red Cross, and...
Light. Hidden behind a veil of silence of the fading darkness Celebrate a new day Every day
Time is an abstract concept, but at the same time compellingly concrete. It's a human-designed scheme, into which we think all our doing (and what we don't do) should fit. And which must be accounted for regularly, with great accuracy. Perhaps time even is the only abstract concept of which most people feel they are constantly short.
Anuscka and I are in the fortunate position of feeling that we have more than enough time. And in doing so, we have become increasingly detached from the contrived scheme.
For us, a year is a bit much to comprehend and embrace. We try to focus our lives on the rhythm of the sunlight.
We wish you many beautiful new days. And we hope you will celebrate them, together with the people you love, in good health and with a positive spirit.
The word ‘solstice’ comes from the Latin solstitium meaning ‘Sun stands still’, because it seems that the movement of the Sun’s path, whether north or south, stops for a few days before reversing direction. On the Northern hemisphere, winter solstice means that the light returns: the sun turns towards us again. The days grow longer and the light regains its dominance.
I love this time of the year, in which the whole cosmos seems to come to a standstill for a moment.
I wish you peaceful dark days, filled with warmth, lights in the home and in the heart, and time to enjoy the silence and beauty of nature at rest. May we absorb a piece of that into our bodies and minds so that we can begin the new season of light full of energy.
‘And Then The Sun Stood Still’ is a new artwork in my collection ‘Secret Places’.
Branches entangled Birds swallowed in sunlight Even the leaves do not move Fragrance of Summer
A warm day early in the summer, it is windless. The dense foliage filters the sunlight. Birds sing, but are invisible in the golden-green light.
'Entangled In Sunlight' is a new artwork in my collection 'The Narrow Path'. For this artwork, I used one of my own impressionist photographs and a fragment of an abstract expressionist painting by the Canadian painter Jules D . Thank you Jules, for allowing me to fuse fragments of your artwork with my photographs, to create a new work !
