„confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.“ (august wilson).


facing the parts of ourselves that we don’t like, or we are afraid of, is one of the most difficult tasks in life – maybe the most difficult one. this is no easy job; and it can be painful, too. but facing that pain by really feeling it – not denying or freezing ourselves to it – . we spread light on them; allowing us to see more clearly. and, exerting compassion and offering forgiveness to those parts, we might come to accept and care for them…

    bon lundi & une semaine formidable! bonne santé et bonne chance dans toutes tes activités… amicales pensées, Mélanie

    • thank you steve. i mostly paint with acrylics, cause they are so flexible and my drive for painting is too strong to be put off…at that moment it’s impossible to loose time for preparations.
      i read your „about“ and feel, we both are riding a similiar wave.

      • Ahhh…of course. I could use some flow medium to thin the acrylic. I like acrylics as well. They are very versatile. I have only just started on this painting journey as you know. I am more accomplished in other creative areas. I have completed one painting and would like to post a photo of it at some point to my blog. Thank you for stopping by. I have followed your blog and hope to keep in touch.

  2. What an expressive painting!
    I am deeply impressed…

    Also by your words to it,
    Pointing to a very important
    Significant Fact of life!

  3. Very touching, very true. You see so many things and colours… und du kannst sie so wunderbar ins Bild übersetzen.

    • danke dir für deine worte.
      es gibt leute, die das bild mögen und wieder andere, die es abstossend finden (die sich von den augen verfolgt fühlen). habe kürzlich gelesen, dass es den wissenschaftlern gelungen ist – durch mathematische berechnungen + moderne methoden auf compi – den effekt „verfolgende blicke“ zu beschreiben. anscheinend werden flächige augen vom gehirn wie etwas dreidimensionales behandelt und deshalb entsteht dann auch der eindruck, als würden die blicke den betrachter verfolgen 🙂
