midlife questions - paper boat by 

acrylic and inks on canvas 50 × 60 cm
…swept by the tide? … safety versus boredom ? … sense of adventure together with vulnerability versus dry, calculated, predictable drag ? …. going with the flow without much control versus cementing ones self to the ground like a barnacle ?…. …


paper boat, vulnerability, acrylic painting, blue, water, fate, midlife, safe, endangered, human condition

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 :)
