Healing Scars.

This state of awareness creates an interesting connection with the body-mind interactivity. I have been very sensitive to the any small body discomfort. If my feet complain I listen and massage them with herbal oils. If my skin is dry, I nourish it. In…


Taken by Nature.

I think of dots and end up being driven by lines and texture.  The surrounding combination of being integrated into nature at the same time humanity is so present in shaping the hills with a concentration of houses that have survived invasions, wars, and…



After the rain, I am back to my morning running around the castle’s pond.


Rainy Day

It has been raining all day long. I managed to add a layer to my two paintings but it will take longer for the gel medium I am applying to dry. So, I was starring at the walls for hours. So, I took the opportunity to make drawings.


Franz Kafka ‘Meditation’ and Osho ‘Yoga’

It is like swimming in open ocean, the feeling of expansion is so intense. It brings to the surface repressed fears, ignored fears, even unknown fears as the fear of freedom. Fear of freedom is the most striking one. Beyond the constrains of language, be…


Two Paintings, One Drawing, and a Blank Canvas

The plan was to start my day by giving my three pieces their finishing touches and prepare for a new one, by applying the gesso on the last raw canvas I have brought from Toronto.


Maintaining the Rhythm

The real challenge is not to achieve something rather it is to maintain it. And, this has been the case. I am rotating between the three projects by working a few hours on each of them.


Textures and Multitasking

The concentrated attention provided by this time in residence opens the self to wonder. The impulse to look for something and experiment can be pursued as the means to feed artistic investigation. This time and this space are especially reserved for that…


Getting into the Zone

I am entering into the second week of my residence and I can feel that my soul is only now arriving here to meet my body. It is an Brazilian indian idea that if someone travels too fast, the soul will be able to catch up only later on. There are these st…


“…cultivate language based on our emotions that help to amplify our felt experience”

Reflecting over weight versus content, I see how much all the care on packing my paintings materials to bring them to Krumlov has paid off. Particularly, the raw canvas and the Golden Paint’s gesso made it worth to deal with backpain for more than three…


My first ‘Krumlov’ painting

The internal discipline I was anxious about turned out to be something much more practical. To build a routine by defining a daily schedule seems to be working. As it is too hot to work in the morning at my open air studio I embraced the limitation and turned it into liberation.


Dobrý Den (Good Morning)

Dobry Den (Good Morning) Advancing from “Thinking” to “Doing”, including getting my recycled plastic containers for mixing paints, took not only intention and time but also lots of organization and learning. I have not started painting yet, though I have been working with ideas and making drafts with my pastels.
