A Reminder of the power of Wonder
The Wonder collection is so far one of my most cherished collections and perhaps also the most vulnerable. The collection was created during my maternity leave with my youngest son. It has been a period of slowing down, quieting, exploring, and many moments of wonder.
It resulted in a collection of beauty and peace.
Made with selfmade watercolors of earth pigments and a little bit pastel, beautiful framed in a blanc wooden floating frame.
Widen your field of view and see the beauty and value
of the little and everyday
I am aware
Of the pitfall
In busyness and speed
My mind’s on what proceeds
Harsh sounds surround,
Potential for overwhelm, indeed
I close my eyes,
Cover my ears,
To slow down and hush the speed
Restlessness in the beginning,
Boredom sometimes winning,
Space blooms, an open heart,
Curiosity, free to flow,
To explore, to boldly go
In this moment, I find peace,
An open heart’s,
There is only now
In the old, I find new
I see grandeur in the small
And beauty in the everyday
There is room for wonder
This collection was not only born during my maternity leave but also presented me with a host of unique challenges. Embracing the slower pace of life during this period provided an opportunity for creativity, curiosity, and fearless experimentation.
What makes this collection truly special is that it marks both my debut in the realm of canvas and my venture into the world of homemade earth pigment paint. Crafting paint from scratch is a deliberate process that demands additional time and patience, but the rewards are immeasurable. The act of paintmaking itself becomes a meditative journey, forging a deeper connection with the colors I use. Moreover, the resulting hues are so beautiful, and the texture they brings the artwork to live.
Throughout the creation of these pieces, there was a harmonious partnership between surrendering to the fluidity of watercolors and the delicate dance of merging abstract and semi-realistic elements.
The beauty of selfmade watercolor
lies process itself and the beauty of the colors and structures
