I just had a chat. I was asked: „Hi, Tomas, how are you?“ and I replied: „Hi…I am enjoying an opportunity to say “Hi!” loudly now“.

ABC of self-deception

The mushrooms grow and have the same taste everywhere, yet while moving from country to country the approach to the gathering of the ‘Edible Boletus’ differs greatly. The Lithuanians love the mushrooming  – the wandering around the woods,  but it‘s otherwise in Sweden or Germany . Many gather the delicious “wood-bread” only in the shops there.

The same relate to the fine arts. The colors please each eye, yet radiate the different message – the same image means different things in different countries , but we muse about the global impact of the fine arts on our cultures.  Is that not the ABC of self-deception?

I like to paint, but what does that mean? How to relate my emotions to the current worldevents?
I don’t know the picture that changed though some in our daily living needs ,
but still create my visual stories nevertheless.

wish for freedom

The fenced-in dog barks at the one running free

This thought has drawn the need of response because of the analogy with myself:
the fenced-in = the living with the limiting status of the diagnosis  psychiatric disorders,
barks of the dog = my musing on life.
So the barking of the fenced-in embeds
a search for freedom is the unknown concept to the running free
despite the beauty of our reasoning.
So what is a place of the fine arts in our life?
The questions started a search for truth yet melted away while viewing the images created by Lithuanian artist Tomas Karkalas.

The ARTHIKER blog requires a new post every day, so the need to think makes me look at my day consciously. Despite old age, responsibility makes me grow.

Some say the photos speak. So I looked around and that ‘s what I saw … my Arthiker . The word means Tomas Karkalas hiker through art .

Garden of possibilities

world through painter's eyes

this digital painting may be defined as an abstract art but I prefer it as  an outlook towards the world, the transformational art by  Tomas Karkalas who use his paintbrush as the tool for the meditation. Original size of the picture is 60×80 cm  It would be  good if your comments would take more place than the picture – joke.

Driven by a Dream

When it seems that is the end, painting awakes the smile. Art colors have just magical power to pick up the sunbeam from underfoot. That’s the miracle of art therapy.  Driven by a Dream welcomes you – calls to recognize the fairy tale and to spread the message.

Peace and Love

The integration of art to life not embellishes, but changes our life. As the pictures knock on the heart, the artworks transform the human mindset, and new way of thinking silences the beggars.

For example,  I have no money at a moment, yet  it does not matter any. Though my financial situation looks hopelessly and threatens to stop any creative work, yet I still have everything I need to share my heart I have my tongue and am free to speak, to greet you and share my thoughts with you.  As  Enreal says “And remember to see what we need to face”  Thus let Peace and Love mark  our starting point and define the day-to day being.
