Hotairgun on canvas; medium wax
It took me forever to get this painting to be ok.
Had to lay it down and pick it up again, over and over..
While working on it there was the strugle ( that is there more often..) between working from the soul and working from ego..
Ego has the;
I can use my tools to create this the way i want it to be.. the soul tells me to let it be.. accept the flow.. clearly this struggle is not only present while i paint.. but the painting helps me to see and understand more.

Samsara the Movie
“Samsara” is a spiritual love story set in the majestic landscape of Ladakh, in the Himalayas, about one man’s quest to find enlightenment. Tashi, a brilliant young disciple, is just completing three years of solitary meditation in a remote hermitage. Brought out of a deep trance, Tashi is taken back to his ancient monastery where he slowly recovers his strenght, but his return has unexpected results. Despite a life devoted to the rigors of spiritual development, he finds himself experiencing a suprisingly profound sexual awakening. These feelings coincide with his journey to a village to perform a harvest blessing where he meets Pema, a beautiful young woman. For the first time, Tashi begins to question the spiritual values of his monastic existence, realizing that one has to experience worldly existence in order to renounce it. Through Tashi’s eyes, this spiritual and moving love story chronicles one man’s discovery of the promise of “Samsara” – the world.
