Peace in my mirror

true story

The world looks at grey-headed as the useless, and thus stimulate the laugh of the baddies at the moral philosophy .
Previous to writing that I was drawing, but the artworks needed the titles. So the penholder replaced my paintbrush. I knew the ABC then, but I truly rejoice over the reading now. That is much more than just an ability to navigate by the ABC . Time has taught me the meaning of the letters which have led me to the prayer life. So my artworks changed the eggheads into the curious first-former . Thus I am reading the Monterey Bay Holistic Alliance now:

Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live. ~ Attributed to Jacqueline Winspear

The world is a dangerous place.
Not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.
Albert Einstein

Great posts worth seeing from Tomas Karkalas: What next?

nursing serendipity

While hearing one is sick, we think about the nursing, but the mentally ill patients can only dream about such understanding and the compassion for their hardships. Thus I can’t rejoice over the consciousness of my town.
On the other hand, either being the mentally ill is something that deserves the applause out of itself? Not, of course. Then why did I feel some irritation? Either I worry just for myself (I am exactly such patient), or think about you as my brothers and sisters?
I think the picture on above perfectly share these  emotions. If…when we succeed in transcending our prejudices, we insensibly enter the realm of the spiritual wonderland…
Now, let me share some of visual thoughts, let me invite you to Modus Vivendi.

Who is the winner?

Life likes the public order, and the fine arts puts that pictorially: the babyish lullabies turn to tales for the children, and the stories for the teenagers grow into the literature for the adult. If we would judge by appearance, it may look like the victory of the material world against the spirituality, yet I do not want to whine – who is the true winner? Either God, or the market?

The Holly Spirit makes my material dependence into the source of blessing : God changes the complaints for the hardships of living with the disability into the gratitude for living

Welcome to transformational art of Tomas Karkalas

The daily Bible reading characterize my current posture: I didn‘t talk about my works as some personal achievements but enjoy seeing life from God‘s view. So my artworks are not a boast of a struggle with an empty sheet of paper but the sitting in an awe towards the magnificent flight of the God‘s Spirit, which gifts the peace in the painful living with the disabilities…
The obedience to the rules of the road  could help the spread , but I haven’t the obligatory finance for such publicity.
The outcome?
I was invited to participate in art therapy. It concerns about the transformational approach to life more than to the physical tracks of our paintbrushes.  Such “palette” exceeds the framed spaces  of the pictures to our everyday cares – portrays the eternal truths.  Unfortunately, art therapy costs too : the artistic materials cost higher than my pension. Therefore, I address you now :
please help the disabler, who is out of any work, to live his belief.

I would greatly appreciate whatever you could give. Please use Western Union money remittance to  yours Tomas Karkalas.

The artists are free despite the situation they live in because the fine arts are not costly things but personal attitude towards eternity.

Unfortunately, the artists must deal not with the theories, but with the canvases, frames – with  the materials that have the cost… Meanwhile, I have no cash. I live on a disability pension, which allows me to savour only a slice of bread… In other words, my short purse stifles my creativity. It depends on your support.

If you like my works, please enable me to continue them. Please send your donations to Tomas Karkalas.
