‘THERE IS NOTHING THAT IS A MORE SIGN OF INSANITY THAN TO DO THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND EXPECT THE RESULTS TO BE DIFFERENT'(Einstein)

AREN’T ALL QUESTIONS EASY WHEN YOU KNOW THE ANSWERS? Yes, it has been a while. For no specific reason. I’ve just been living life, instead of living the dream.

And once again I felt like I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. So I started travelling to where I hadn’t been before. I chose Thailand. Phuket. Looking for adventure, looking for myself. Far away from home.

In order to live the dream I need to make the unthinkable thinkable and the impossible possible. Why? Because I can. All creative people need something to rebel against. I do it for me. Every painter wants to create at least one masterpiece, but how many are prepared to make the sacrifices it takes to be great?

Welcome to the land of the eternal smile! Although they stole my laptap, camera, money and some other things, I really like Thailand. I love the colors, the smiling faces, the light, the boedism and last but not least the non-professional women.

Yes, it’s time to take up painting again. Aiming beyond what I am capable of. ENERGY. There are no excuses. I just won’t take no for an answer. Whithout me doing it, when it supposedly can’t be done, it would be another in the endless list of ideas that have never happened. Looking for a tittle. Maybe: Be Unfashionable, Take Risks, or Fly Or Die, or Tunnel Vision, or A Lesson In Itself, or I Am No More Or Less Distasteful Than You, or There’s Just No Talking To Them? No, not good enough.. I am going for: Close Encounters. Yes! So coming soon, probably next month: Close Encounters. Be ready. By the way: happy birthday mom!
