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.

Thought of the day

The Power To Be in disguise as a cookie — 2010

Time from time I like to browse through my blog. Thus the photo the Power to be in disguise as a cookie ~ 2010 caught my look once again. I wrote then that we can either talk about love or to love. Nothing changed since then despite the multitude of new artworks. Art Test remained the same. Did we learn though something? Art metaphors are still waiting for their readers.

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.

Key to Art by Tomas

There has to be no garbage in the nature, yet have a look at the photo above.

Does artworks laugh at our “best intentions”, or give a key to confusion we face on each step?

Prompt: Do you recall a tale where prince kissed a frog and such way transformed it into the loveliest beauty?

That’s a key to my creative work  as here so everywhere you see Tomas Karkalas

If you see thirsty for the kiss in the picture, than Old Door is widely opened gates to you.

Hope you will have a good time with my painting and let me know your mind. Thank you in advance.

The abstraction may look great, yet has it the right to embellish the reality I’m facing?

My digital painting is based on a work with the photography.  Though some pictures may look as the abstracts at first glimpse, they all have strong documentary foundation (looking through the lenses of my camera reminds me about the need to mark the horizon clearly for not to go astray while wandering in the world of symbolism as I paint).  Please check out my post the  visual poetry.  Hope you will enjoy my digital painting and will grasp the transformations
