What inspires me?

I often get the questions "What inspires you?". So I thought I will start sharing how I get inspired on a regular basis!

Poems is a great source of inspiration for me. I find them in books and on-line. I often write them in big letters on the canvas in an early stage of a painting. In the end there might be parts of it visible but sometimes the actual text can not be seen but the inspiration of the words are all shining through!

One current source of inspiration is Kaveri Patel and her poems! (see more here). The following poem is written in the blue of the painting below... and yes, Kaveri is ok with me using her poems as inspiration:-) She has used one of my paintings on a cover for one of her books:-))

Walking Meditation

letting go of destination
no place to go but here
sacred steps, feet on the Earth
aware you're already there
