In this series “Be Still my Life” I turn my attention to ordinary everyday scenes that capture moments of stillness and have a soothing effect on my spirit and mind. The process of painting them allows me to get in touch with the better part of myself, to evolve, and get closer to understanding who I am meant to be and where I fit into the world at large. By focusing on inanimate objects from various encounters in life, whether plants or lamps or architectural scenes, I challenge myself to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Although each painting stems from straight observation, the act of painting them turns each reality into an imagined place, a world of its own where I am able to experience interludes of peace and tranquility.
