happy pilgrims returning down the holy mountain by 


acrylic paint on three canvas panels (together 135×90 cm)

…. this … I would probably not consider finished IF not for having gotten (lol) some courage to do so thanks to having seen the “Paths to Abstraction” exhibition at the Gallery of NSW last week ……
… this is an impression of a feeling of happiness and oneness, which I so often experienced through my life in connection to this HERE place …. it seems that since my childhood my life always returns to this place … I have my only happy childhood memories of “a family” connected to this place … and memories of “knowing freedom” despite all kinds of oppression ( and I DO mean ALL kinds … ) … and yes … I have been there last year again – for three days – during the Spring, just before all becomes green …
… the feel of this place is very feminine and that of healing and overcoming all which is trying to suppress ‘the feminine’ …. the main point for all who come here (no matter the religious views or lack of them) has always been the “miraculous” water spring …. and yes …I personally find it miraculous that there is a place (and many places elsewhere – I am sure) where one can go and return from there “refreshed” in all ways ….

I believe arts making creates connection between our inner and outer worlds.
I love the depth, the lightness, the playfulness, the seriousness and the inexpressibly sincere nature of relationships which tend to ‘just happen’ while sharing interests, passions and frustrations about art :)

    Anna I really love this – the mood, the color, the “story” and this place that is so freeing for you. An amazingly meaningful piece.

    I would have been most impressed with the grandeur of the paintings standing alone, but after reading it’s purpose and meaning it became even larger. Congratulations on a truly successful work of art Anna.

  • thank you so much Jim :)
