Modigliani

MY INSPIRATIONS VOL4.

I love Modigliani because the way he expressed emotions without making any fuss! 🙂 As you first glance at this paintings, they look as if they were exactly the same: somehow elongated figures positioned in a rather ordinary manner. But then suddenly as you look into them you start to see their feelings, their sorrows, their passions all hidden behind the simplistic, almost childlike figures.

The film depicts greatly the all-consuming passion with which Modigliani lived and died too soon at the age of 35.

David Hockney

MY INSPIRATIONS VOL5.

I love David Hockney’s art is because it reminds me of a child’s imagination. All his paintings are colourful, alive, expressive and childlike. They depict a world that is full of wonder and playfulness.

In a recent series of photographic drawings, David Hockney, shown above in his studio, plays with the relationship between painting and photography.

Botero

MY INSPIRATIONS VOL2.

Why do I love Botero? Just look at these adorable figures! 🙂 It is impossible to fall in love with them immediately. This super Columbian mostly self-taught painter is one of my favourites because his painting remind me of childlike wonder. His paintings are mostly politically inspired, you can feel the tension at the same time I can also sense that I am looking at these events though the eyes of a child that are exaggerated and rather comical.

Kandinsky

MY INSPIRATIONS VOL1.

I love Kandinsky because he believed in the deep connection between ART and our SOUL. He wrote extensively about the way ART influences the SPIRIT and vice versa.

*

“Painting was a spiritual activity for Kandinsky.

In 1912 he published the book, Concerning the Spiritual in Art. He believed that art should not be merely representational but should strive to express spirituality and the depth of human emotion…”

In his book, Concerning the Spiritual in Art, Kandinsky writes,

“Color directly influences the soul. Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another purposively, to cause vibrations in the soul.”

Book of Memories

Creating MY GRATEFULNES JOURNAL allows me to be playful. IT is not about creating high art, but creating positive memories!

Recently, I have found my grandma’s BOOK OF MEMORIES’. I remember that as a child we used to have these lovely sketch books that we passed around the school asking friends to write ‘memories’ for us in them.

None of these entries were treasured because of their artistic merit but because of what they meant for us, kids. Friends wrote kind messages, quoted a poem, or draw a small picture to remember by.

Each entry was special because it depicted the person who created it and because it left a memory of a time when they were children together.

Giving thanks can make you happier

AUDIO VERSION OF TEXT BELOW

*

I am not one of those people for whom being thankful comes easily. I grew up in an environment that implanted constant criticism and an attitude of never-good-enough in me. It took me a long time and a lot of conscious effort to develop an attitude of gratitude towards my life.

Running the Gratitude Journaling Class derived from my great need to express my gratitude daily. I know from experience now, what a difference it makes in my well-being when I consciously focus on finding things in my life that I am grateful for. It changes my whole outlook on life.

“The word gratitude is derived from the Latin word gratia, which means grace, graciousness, or gratefulness (depending on the context). In some ways gratitude encompasses all of these meanings. Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what an individual receives, whether tangible or intangible. With gratitude, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives.”
