1. Thought on art/painting
Art can express the inexplicable. That’s a remarkable potential we have because we still can’t explain the most important things, such as why there are ‘good’ and ‘bad,’ and what to do about it. Limitations in expression are limiting the thinking (yes, also this way round). We feel that there is something, somewhere in us, that holds more answers than we can explain with words. Art/painting is a key to the next human breakthrough in consciousness.

According to the Happy Colorful Growth spirit, my paintings do happen (not always obviously) in the areas of (1) Japan – Switzerland, (2) Charging, (3) Female nature, and (4) Life water. I paint, although not within clear boundaries, “City scenes & Landscapes”, “Figures & Creatures”, and “Abstracts & Patterns”.

For most work I use professional water mixable oil colour (Winsor & Newton) that are designed to look and work like traditional oil paint, because they can be used without hazardous solvents. I mostly use wood panel or canvas panel (board).
