I´m hesitant about posting my new completed paintings, because I´m going to have an exhibition in May and I want some paintings to be a surprise.. but I guess not much people are reading this blog. I´ll see with the other ones. I feel very happy these days. The kids are great, we can go for a walk every day or run in the garden next to the church, we have great friends, and I´m going to have an exhibition. Every day I paint a little and that´s what I love to do at most. When I was a small kid, people often asked me what I want to be when I grow up? A painter, was what I answered for the first time. I loved to paint and draw. Later, I became more aware of what I answered - I still loved to paint, but was ashamed to tell anybody I want to be an artist. Even later, I started to believe I should do something different; in high school I loved art and everything connected to it, but I was lazy to do something more with it, to work hard or prepare for a college. I was also very busy with maths and physics, causing me much trouble. Then I went to college, doing something completely different and immediately I saw that it was a complete mistake. There were many things to do, but I got back to painting during that time. There were days when I was depressed and unfulfilled; I wanted to find and do something that brings joy to me, but also something that others will appreciate. I´m still a bit confused, but I think I have that something now and I´m living that childhood dream a bit.
