I have been painting BIG! A friend suggested I would give myself that challenge in 2013, and I thought that would be a wonderful opportunity to allow myself to play and make a mess!!! And that´s what I did. And then I worked on with the mess. And tidied it up into 3 landscape paintings. And I loved the process. Learned a lot too.
Here is the first one:
“Lake of dreams” , 70 x 140 cm. Acrylic on canvas.
Sometimes we need the place and space to cocoon away for our dreams to gain their full strength and become ready to work their wonders….
“The space between us”, mixed media on canvas, 50 x 150 cm
The second painting is inspired by the title from the CD by Lars Muhl and Githa Ben David, “To heal the space between us”. Beautiful title, right? And so is the CD, I especially love this song. The painting is about the space between two beings that are connected. If the magic of that connection happens in the space between them (and it does!), then that space is a very important place. To be filled with care and awareness and beauty. Kept fresh so that it may be a refreshing space.
“Bridge of hope”, mixed media on canvas, 70 x 140 cm
The third painting is called Bridge of hope. After posting it on facebook, a friend in turn posted the most beautiful poem by David Harris with almost the exact same title. I had never heard it before, but instantly loved it. And it beautifully carries the frequency I was contemplating whilst making this painting:
THE BRIDGE OF HOPE
Beyond the bridge of hope
lies the land of charity
and with a little faith
one day I may get there.
Where everything is equal
and shared equally the same.
Faith leads as we venture
on across the bridge of hope
and into the arms of charity.
Each day we may struggle
to keep our lives afloat
as we venture closer
to the bridge of hope.
Thank you for being there, witnessing and interacting in all your wonderful ways. I love that we are not on a journey alone, but very much together.
With love, Lise.
