TAKE ME TO PARADISE painting
After a year of struggling with this painting I finally was able to finish it. Layer over layer over layer, this painting has gone through a whole process. In every painting you need a certain balance.
Imbalance in every single way needs a change to get to balance. In a world full of chaos, full of confusion this painting symbolizes what's going on.
The world is suffering from imbalance (stress, pollution, less nature, less time) for a long time now. It now seems like we are being drifted apart by this corona virus, but in this time I think we even connect more. Families are being together in a house. We have time to spend with each other. We care about each other, we are looking for the good part within ourselves (beyond the stress, the work pressure, the need of materials, the luxury) and find compassion, love and humanity.
We need each other, that's for sure. We are one. The one thing that people need the most, above all, is love and affection. Love is the only way. In Venice nature gets a change to recover (in the news), less traffic everywhere, people work at home, children learn at home. I hear that people have time to take a walk with each other. It is not all bad, let's make it good. Care about each other
I was finally able to finish this painting. I've worked several times on this piece, changed it, put it aside, changed it, put it aside. Now I know it was waiting for this moment. TAKE ME TO PARADISE
Focus on healing, take the time to reflect, to be yourself fully, maybe this is the time to renew, to create other ideas, to send your love to the ones who need it, to take your responsibility and keep physical distance, to think for the whole, not only for yourself. As you can see...We are one.
