For a long time working with art I have also made post cards and through the years many have found their people. I continue to believe that we will always want to make people happy with words written precisely for them and written by hand. Because, I receiving joy like a child, when postman gave me a letter!!!
what kinds of post cards
You can purchase in my store!
It was avery good experinece for me, and a lot of artists from all over the world I met!
I was honored to meet the Latvian Cultural Attache from Embassy of Latvia Mrs. Irene Hamilton! Events like this really inspire me to work!
Who knows, maybe I will get in again and participate:)
How are my works made?
Sometimes the idea of an artwork in my mind is formed for a very long time. And then the moment comes when the idea is ready. I "see" finished artwork in my head. That is the time to realize it! Often the idea comes from the impression of a task, experienced as an event, movie or book, or just of my life...
The idea for these two artworks came a long time ago - for one ("Where does the light break I")- at the end of 2018. I tarted working on it in February 2019. The thought was about light. The many squares are our living space. The gold circles that have cracked - this is the light path in our lives. The second one ("Where the light break II") was created for my solo exhibition in 2018. But, it took its final form in 2019. The idea is also about the light path. The idea is about a black hole. Even light does not escape from it. But, I believe that even in the darkest place there is light in our souls...
In September I submited two artworks to the exhibition selection board. And, so, my art accepted and will be display intil 05.01.2020. in the Annual Visual Art Exhibition "Autumn 2019" in the Latvian Artists Union.
But You, the viewers, always have space for Your interpretation. What do You see in a work of art? Perhaps this is a completely different idea than what the artist wanted to say?
For both artworks I chose text from the Book of Job 38:19-24:
"Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness where is the place thereof, that thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof? Knowest thou it, because thou wast the born? or because the number of thy days is great? Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war? But what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?"
You can also have the patron saint of all cooks in Your kitchen!
This Icon can be a good gift for someone who enjoyes cooking!
Even if I travel or am here in Latvia, my "little asylum" - the Icon of Our Lady is always with me in my pocket! There had been some difficult times in my life, and always when I look in the eyes of the Mother of God I can speak with God, think about my family. We, humans, are emotional. We need to believe. My little Icon of Our Lady is my Ocean of Faith. And this Ocean is in my pocket, always with me!
Maybe, this little "Ocean" is for You?
Once upon a time someone asked me, why I paint, why art? I answered - it is my life! When I paint I'm happy!
Every of us has a reason for being here, on earth. If we understand it, we fulfill it in our lifes! I have walked away from the art world many times, and still returned back. So, I can say - no one can run away from his destiny. Somehow it comes in your life, sooner or later. What else can I say...
