Cycles, layers on the wheel of time

Before:

I have talked, written and been excited a lot. I have been pressing forward.

Nowadays:

I want to be quiet and watch - how tawny owls glide when the sun hands over its spot for the growing crescent and glimmery stars.
It's time to paint.
Letters, words and sentences have gotten a place as elements in my art. For me, they mean life, a person from a small linguistic area. I often remove these elements when the painting gets forward. When the right moment come they tranquilly pass by - they dive into colours as a part of a bigger circle.
Cycles, layers on the wheel of time.

What I love:

Wild flowers, berries from the nature, northern trees, small children, the sun on the sky...
