Flow

What does flow mean to you? When are things flowing? When are they not? Why? How does it feel? Where in your body do you feel it? For me it is waves. When things flow, it feels natural, moving, powerful, not resisting, moving around and over things instead of pushing them away. So I started my collage with a page of wave scribbles and added flowers and some doodles. Because flow is pretty and feels natural (like flowers). Life comes and goes in waves. Up and down. Coming and going. The more we [...]

Art teaches

When I create, there is always such an element of self. I can only create from within, from my feelings, my experience, my love/hate, my messages, my needs, my perceptions, my understanding, my views,... Every piece of art, every collage, every doodle, represents a little (or big) piece of me. Yet it is also not me. It is a translation. A story that needs telling. An image that needs drawing. A feeling that needs being felt. A message that needs to be heard. I always knew there was a healing el [...]

The problem is, you think you have time. I have quite some time on my hand at the moment as I'm on sick leave, recovering from 2 surgeries in 1 month and resting up for what is to come in the next four weeks. Time is tricky. Sometimes it passes fast. Sometimes it slows down to a halt. I always liked to organize my time and plan. But when time and plans get thrown overboard a little, that's when time shows its real face. Time is a matter of perspective. When you're young you want it to move faste [...]

Accept
