lift off

Kulia i ka nu’u – (Strive to reach the highest.)

This seagull was taken in Alameda / San Francisco. For me it felt like the messenger to lift off and fly high, we can always leave any situation and strive for something more spacious, uplifting to get into our Joy.

Also that was the time when we moved Betty (now 94) to Hawaii.

The prints are available for sale, up to 13×19 inches.

head in the clouds

This is the first drawing of a new series of surreal portraits called “head in the clouds”. It is made with graphite powder, graphite stick and pencil on paper. Its dimensions are 35×57 inches. 
I started this basically with the outbreak of the pandemic in Hawaii (March 2020) and will continue with more variations of large heads on div bodies. These drawings are inspired by our mental overload, memories which often pile up and keep us from living in the present moment. Imbalances of mind and body, heart and soul, higher self and the material reality we create lead us down the wrong paths. We get lost. 
By entering a meditative state often listening to specific music and sounds the process is some type of channeling and letting the hand do the inspired talking. I invite the viewer to find their own associations and inner images while looking at the details of the portrait.
