While drinking a mint tea and warming up from a kite surf session on a Tuesday night, a friendly man next to me started a conversation. We talked about an hour or so, he sharing real stuff from his life and heart: Me, as usual, listening a lot. At a certain point he asked me what kind of work I do and so I answered: I am an artist, I mainly paint. He looked at me, smiling and said: I thought you were an artist, but a writer.
When I sat alone again with my tea and biscuit, I suddenly remembered that it was a while ago I have been writing a blog. Quite a long time ago, so this spontaneous conversation inspired me to sit down, searching for the right words to introduce Serendipity to you.
Painting this piece has been pure joy, especially these blue tones that of course connect me to the ocean and it's everlasting movement. At a certain time in my process I knew it needed a specific touch to finish it and while loosen up and letting go I found something new in my creative process while playing intentionally. It felt like walking along the shore, finding something valuable, unexpectedly. All of a sudden I knew the title that embodies the emotion and revelation I experienced in creating this work: Serendipity, of course!
Telling this story with my work, I hope you will become more aware of the serendipities that surround you. These things are truly sparkling lights in our every day lives, but you have to discover it. A good friend of mine once wrote: It is the beginning of an artful life.
I would like to end this blog with this most beautiful sentence but I have more...
This summer I'll be offering this original painting for an affordable price. In addition you will get this pair of uniquely designed espadrilles matching the artwork as a gift from me. For more details contact me.
So what do you think about it? Do you like to be inspired by sun, sea, best vacations and walking on Serendipity? Wishing you a wonderful summer vacation wherein you will find happy, delightful and unexpected things!
