as soon as I glanced at this wall I experienced just a magical transformation . It was a touch of light.

current affairs in artistic reflection

current affairs

current affairs - Tomas Karkalas 2010

The snow pictures show current affairs (depicts the chaos and the helplessness of many around), and that is a test, because it is so easy to turn back from the photography and to  shift to the  criticism of all around, meanwhile the snow drawings come from the radiant whiteness of the frozen light. The contradiction in terms is the obvious here.  Thus what’s the true content of  this landscape? What do you think?  Our mindset reveals the reality we are facing.  So we witness the real miracles:  we meet  either the litters or the beauty… yet can the way of my approach to the cultural values pay my bills (change the economic conditions of people who are dependent on my country politics?  So what’s the fine arts?  The meditation in color that’s our coming in a hug, thus please do not delay to activate this link…. free traffic exchange

Snow Portraits

Snow portraits

Our attitude towards the life makes flat surface of a print into the Artwork. So it is possible  either to sulk at our path, or sit back into awe towards eloquent talk of the earth

New Year resolution- I am going to paint the flowers

When the fireworks were illuminating the night, I was looking at a  kitchen table.  Thus the bed of vase bloomed with hope and enabled me to recall the tradition to make the resolutions for the  New Year.  I have chosen to uplift my eyes once again.

As I dared to shift my eye from the reality of the floorboard to the consolation prize from the above,  the fresh leaves came into my sight immediately.  The wonder overfilled my heart.  What kind of flower will be discovered ultimately?

resolution to bloom

Yes, I will learn to draw the flowers.  I am going to bloom despite the threatening news of my beloved country (the nuclear power-station was closed on New Year eve and the cost for the electricity is going to jump high, meanwhile the pensions will be  pared-down… and bills raised up significantly) The able-bodied population boot out from Lithuania for the daily bread, yet the sick remain.  People with disabilities can rely just on a miracle.  So our hardships enabled us to dream about  the light, to call for the Savior and to revive because of the miracle of the Heavenly Peace, which knocks on the heart then. Personally I am going to learn to paint the flowers.  That may look ridiculous in the light of the current affairs (our art therapy club Modus Vivendi was forced to close… so to speak, the grateful audience was lost, and the farewell post appeared on Art by Tomas blog  too. Yet I still hope to receive your support and thus I enjoy my visions till now.  Dear readers, help me to transform the slide show  Passionate Silence into the grateful day-to-day walk.
