Today, solstice, 21st of December one of the most powerful points of the year, the standstill of the sun, for me a moment of reflection on the year that has passed.
What do we expect in life,.success, growth and beautiful highlights, love, comfort ?
Being successful means the achievement of desired visions and planned goals.
Did I meet mine? God noo and hell yes!
My year was a year with beautiful highs which meant terrible lows in return.
Wishing I would be a banker, male, in my next life;-)
I fluctuate immediatly with my sales by what happens in the world, on the news, inflation and what not. It was chaos..
The beautiful thing of making art is, it is always there like a solid ground where I can stand on, it never tires me and keeps me above all focused .
A big thank you for all my old and new clients for shining on your walls ! Amazing.
Have a magical Christmas and a beautiful new year, live life to the fullest starting today!

-Like time stood still –
We are used to instant result, immediate satisfaction, now and fast around the clock.
And here I am waiting almost a month to have my analogue photos converted into digital.
A different way of shooting, you can not click away and delete on the spot, so you hope for the best.
I almost forgot what I shot! A sweet reminder,. I was in paradise.
Sometimes patience is a virtue, it is ok to slow down now and then.

As society requires an artist should have a story ‘behind’ a painting.
But sometimes there is none, I can tell you a lovely story and trick you into the world of illusions but there are times I just paint and have no conscious thoughts whilst making it and no power over the outcome.
Sometimes years later it makes sense to me.
I can tell you what I see and what I think it could be but I like to invite you, the viewer to make the story, challenge your thoughts in directions you usually don’t go.
In the end it will be hanging on your wall so the story must appeal to you in order to be amazed by it every day !

Zermatt is for me one of the most beautiful places to go skiing, not only because it has a lot of off and on interesting piste, it has divine restaurants, lovely people and of course it has the magical Matterhorn always watching you and for sure the endless no cars allowed romantic village it self. Especially at Christmas time you can not make me happier than to be there at that time cold but cute!
It does not take a lot to get into the local crowd, they embrace you and take you into their tribe, so we go up, ski, walk and climb the gletsjer, learn about the changes of the gletsjer shrinking.
Do not understand me wrong I know we are polluters as humans, we are, big time, we are over consuming, greedy and selfish, we are clueless but I do think that Mother Nature is and will always be more powerful than humanity and will win the race in the end. I hope we will come to a natural stop because we will simply not be able to consume as we do now, how,?I don’t know but I have faith. Maybe it is a change of conscious or money related or lack of interest, no need to follow on fashion protocols or need to compete etc, or we are at our maximum of wanting and something else will fill that void.
I don’t want to indulge in the next narrative of climate change how it is communicated at the moment. it feels unnatural.
Is it true that we never had so much snow and ice in the Nord pole since the last 10 years and why don’t we read about it, and is it true that the ice bears are at no point of extinctive species they are actually doing better than before? Which narrative are you following? There are many.
In the meantime I make photos of the snow and mountains never get enough of nature and action.
Little shout out to my friend who joins me on these trips, never give up even if it takes you 20 times of trying to accomplish where you want to be in life I know you will be where you want to be at one point in your life!
I love the saying I have read somewhere: the definition of discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want the most.
I agree. Patience is a virtue. The mountains teach me that.
