The Garden Arch
This painting was first begun with a stone wall. But one day I dreamt of an egret family at the end of a garden arch, and soon the vines replaced the wall.
This became my quick impression of graceful birds, pure and affectionate. I thought that their free spirit and fantastic ballerina-like dances would be the light at the end of a tunnel. I decided to finish it in an impressionistic – dreamlike style rather than realistically detailed.
The white feathers here represent purity and honesty. The affection represents love. The blossoms represent joy, and the arch represents the path of life – the bird dimension that is never complete without both the flight and the ground. The bottom of the arch is grounding, and the top is the flight. No bird, even the strongest, can stay in the sky forever. It needs both the sky and the ground. It is on the ground where the bird dreams are born, but it is in the sky where they are realized

A water angel hums and dances pouring her true essence to everyone around her and creating a ripple vibration of creation and time. She is the most pristine form of love: wild, untamed, and mysterious.
She is a feminine mystery that forever attracts and allures life around her—the goddess of the greatest force on earth.
The water angel is almost always in motion using the elements of time and energy manifesting oceans, lakes, streams, rivers, waterfalls, geysers and icebergs. She is a magical goddess transforming into a raindrop, a crystal, a snowflake, a dew drop, a teardrop or a rainbow.
She determines the mood of life around her by sensing and absorbing emotions at any distance: remaining tranquil like a lake and fog or wild and unpredictable like a raging flood and a mantle of a volcano.
Able to dissolve, dilute, transport and react with every element essential for life her sacredness is encoded into the liquid cells of all life becoming a part of all consciousness ever present at birth and death.
She is the healer, the purity of existence effortlessly removing waste and illusion. She is changing and sustaining, sublime and indestructible both in enslavement and in freedom.
The water angel is the passage of time and change who holds everyone’s memories. She is the survival and the oasis for all life, a holy fountain of youth ~ the secret to immortality.

Search for Truth
“Search for Truth” is a painting about humanity’s search for the origin, destiny, and meaning of life. It is a story of how we look for the truth and how we treat others as they also try to discover it.
With so many scientific achievements we know so little of where we came from and where we are going. But we know even less of the most important discovery of all – Love. Only love can accept our differences as we journey through life. And only love can allow space for our growth.
The astronaut here represents many of us searching for truth in a controlling way. Although we are still searching, we are convinced that we have already discovered the truth and that everyone should believe it only our way. And believe it at any cost.
Just like this man, we stand on a strange little planet trying to posses it. Like a giant we trample on the flowers reaching for light that represent meek and gentle souls ruled by the ignorant, the cunning, the powerful, the prideful, or the aggressive. Sadly, most of the tiny planet is already trampled.
Through his stiff and cumbersome space suit the astronaut is not able to touch and smell the blossoms and is able to view them only through his shatter-proof mask. He presumes the air here is toxic and void of life. So he fears to remove his suit and get contaminated. Yet despite his great knowledge he has not figured out that if flowers bloom, then he too would be able to breathe safely.
Even though he dwarfs the planet of flowers, he himself gets dwarfed by a grand space of galaxies and mysteries, which I portrayed through many reality designs including two sets of DNA where divine and human lives interact continuously.
I believe everyone should have an opportunity to search for truth their own way. Humility, peace, child-like enthusiasm, acceptance, and sincerity is the true infinity engine!

The tree of life for me is a symbol of abundance and eternal life.

For some the story is a fairy-tale. But for me it was a personal encounter experienced at the age of four that I completely forgot, yet oddly enough was able to depict on linen.
I have no idea if this image is from the past or future, from my own experience, revelation or just my imagination. All I know is that somehow my hands have touched its branches, its fruit and the soil around.
On My Knees
When we are alone in prayer or meditation, we reach peace, joy, love and wisdom. That intimate time nourishes us for eternity.
Each of us walks through our own spiritual journey. But before we walk, before we climb, before we fly, we need to be on our knees. Many decisions need to be made in meekness. Meekness is not weakness. Meekness is the seed of strength, wisdom and love.
Each of us needs to find our own way leading to love, righteousness and happiness, and I chose young a child to complete the message.
I wake up on time. I kneel on a kiss. I stand up on a sting.
To be humble is to respect your own immaturity.
Adoption of perfectionism makes obedience incomprehensible.
Timelessness is performing with your own returned prayer.
Kneeling inside out passes every temptation.
We always respond to obedience.
In eternity humility becomes a legacy in greatness
