Nowhere to get to
All the paintings in this collection were created in a meditative state that was free of striving toward a goal. Instead, a feeling was trusted, and followed, and with each painting a moment of completion was discovered, innocently. There I stopped – grateful and accepting.
How different this is from many years when I worked in the film and television business. Then, the future appeared to be a long ascending highway with achievements and rewards up ahead. Now that highway, which seems more like a country road, trails away behind me, and there is no urgency to get somewhere. Here and now are more than enough.
Here is Stockholm. Now is today. I am very happy to meet you through this mystery of colors and shapes.
