Listen ... and Hear ...

Material: oil on canvas
Size: 30 x 37 cm

If we listen to our Mother Earth she will give us many gifts. Gifts that will surprise us.
I mainly paint in oil on canvas. Why did I choose this artform: I didn’t choose, it choosed me. An inner voice insisting: ”Go to the studio!” The reward is deep satisfaction and joy. My inspiration: The shadow and the light. Tension pulling in different directions. Suspense, endurance and patience until the right moment is there for that which has to mature, mature and be born into something new. Thesis and antithesis become a synthesis. This is a big part of my inspiration. So fascinating!
