Expressive painting in colorful garden spirit

Taken the time in the garden and enjoying the various lives that exists there. I can feel the vibrant flow of the movements of the butterflies, and the colorful  joy of the flowers.  This all gives an impression and touches the soul.

I can take this with me, it is already a way of healing.  But there is more and so it gets out on the paper in creation of the art that heals further. Hopefully, it will inspire others to feel the spirit once again.

Garden painting with expressive touch

What a beauty a garden is. How positive it can touches your soul and your emotions. There is so much beauty and inspiration coming from God’s creations that you watch humble how the various lives are growing and developing.
Is it not amazing how color can change your mood? While your inner part sometimes creates uneasiness, how wonderful those colors can make your other part more relaxed.
This truly touches my soul and leaves this colorful transformation to be seen by those who want to get inspired.

Inspirational movements in a garden

On another trip to Zurich I went to the old botanical garden. Several sculptures from Claire Ochsner were exhibited in open space. It is the combination of nature and human creations that makes such a place so unique. The garden environment is so inspirational and you really can feel the intense vibration. That inspired me for this painting, expressing the vibration I felt at that time.

Elements that are winding up and exposed to the open space, are seeking for upwards movement. Captured in this sketchy painting.
