Take the path


   A few weeks ago I had a delight to visit an art exposition of young Norwegian artist Magnus Lien. It was an amazing emotional experience. First, because he's a son of very dear family friend Helga (incredible artist herself) ; and the  second and more important, it was unforgettable lesson. 

   Today we almost have forgotten that we are only the part of the Nature. Even if we pretend to dominate it,  it's so much bigger, stronger and wiser than the vanity of human's ambitions. And Magnus, self-taught painter, got enough courage to leave his studies (educated as ornithologist) and "safe civilised" life behind and choose his path as an artist, generously opening to us the doors to the world of spirits, Nature's soul and the inner peace.


 
   "What I try to express with my art, is the soul of Nature. I try to paint the souls from the trees, the birds, the flowers, the spring and all the rest. I want to help you connect with your roots, and feel the soul, the power, the beauty and the mystery of Nature; let it fill you in with happiness. My art is meditation. (...) It reminds you we all have the same soul as Nature, we are connected. We are all one, don't forget!"


   Today Magnus Lien is preparing for an  most extensive exhibition of contemporary art "Canarias Nordica" in Gran Canaria, which will take place on 15th-30th of November in the Congress Palace of Maspalomas Expomeloneras. So if by any chance you are on the island, you are very welcome to visit it! Also you are very welcome to visit MAGNUS LIEN page, where you can see some of his paintings (and buy them ;) )

Experience of Love

   So it was the Wedding... And when you talk about the Wedding, it's hard to be not evolved emotionally. If you participate as a photographer for the first time, it's really an overwhelming experience. Even being a second shooter you feel all the weight of responsibility, trying to do your best. But I don't want to become a Wedding photographer or start a business. I live with a photographer, therefore helping and enjoying fits me better. I am happy where I am and with whom I am :)

The study of color





    It is very complicated, if not impossible, to compete with the Mother Nature. But least what we can do is to observe, to  admire and try to learn from it. These Irises were an amazing masterpiece. So, let's pick up the brushes and start splashing the happiness!



  











What inspires you these days?

Dancing with the trees



"It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance.





It is the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance.





It is the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give.





And is the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live."

(Bette Midler)


Do you always give everything?
I am still learning that.
Afraid? 
Only of myself...

The process








"I think about that "empty" space a lot. That emptiness is what allows for something to actually evolve in a natural way. I've had to learn that over the years - because one of the traps of being an artist is to always want to be creating, always wanting to produce."  (Meredith Monk)

Good bye, Coffee!



Hello, my name is Siga, and I am addicted. 

Right, addicted to the coffee ;)



When you can't function without it, it's time to stop.



My senses going to miss it, but I am stronger.

The Power of Life's Water will be with me. 



And I will become a Tea-lover again :)



But the most important-

I WILL BE FREE!



Sounds funny or stupid?

Maybe. 

But that's what I need.

Also I need  some support :)

Snowing...





















   I still have some snow around me:  on my favorite mugs, on my mind and on my knitting projects. Hope you don't mind it, even if it's March !

In his eyes...









   In his eyes the world is an exciting place to be.
   In his eyes the trees are sleeping giants.
   In his eyes the old factories look like enchanted castles.
   In his eyes the things have soul.
   In his eyes the people still are only  black or white.
   In his eyes he is big - today is his birthday...

  ...in my eyes he will always be my little one...
