shadows define the light and my gratitude knows no past.
Unfortunately, the modern art galleries orient to profit. That is horrible. While growing I saw the beauty and morality as the highest goals of the fine arts‘ message. I could not then and I can not visualize the history of the creativity as a fight for the cash now too.

The unfair situation tested my belief and so I have found my heart in the hospital for people with the psychiatric disorders. Art therapy looks like the Last Mohican on the current sunset…

cry for color


Once upon a time the sunbeam created my palette and the artworks reflected the sunbeam. My surroundings literally feeds me – the fine arts helped me recognize oneself in other .

The cost of color discovery is high. Art therapy classes go in the hospitals for people with the psychiatric disorders.



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.

The fallen

Fallen leaves disguise as the theatre masks…. So the nature eased my task to accept the reality such as it is. The identity with the fallen should look sadly, yet as I dared to admit the above diagnosis, it rewarded me with the ability to recognize the beauty underfoot. That truth was the magical art therapy that enabled me  to bloom with all colors of silence.

Dear bloggers, your encouraging feedbacks transformed the dependad  one his  family grace into the artist, who don’t weep for personal sickness  but invites you to the wonderland of painting.   Thank you.
