(a study of Caspar David Friedrich)
First I saw this painting in my friend's house while talking on the phone (thank you Petra for having it on your wall).
I was amazed and astonished by the beauty of the work. Instantly I decided to study it and to try to see what does that unknown person on the edge of the mountain has to say to me.
I worked on it for months and in comparison to the painting of Caspar David Friedrich it is not only unfinished but a blurry and lazy attempt of photocopying.
Fortunately for me, I never had the idea of photocopying it. My wish was to create a similar situation and environment where I will place myself. Therefore, this painting is a self-portrait in a way.
At the beginning of the process of painting, a title came to my mind: "The Wanderer" and I thought, that is an excellent title for the painting. I painted and wondered, painted and wondered... Well, as you can see - it's not an excellent title... At least not for this painting.
Later on, a new title came to my mind: "The Dreamer" and I thought that it is a perfect title for this painting because no description is required.
At the end, or at least - for now, I deduced that I am both a Wanderer and a Dreamer, but this painting is not about me. It is much more... It represents possibilities, options, obstacles, and opportunities. It represents a journey into the unknown, a voyage of belief, a path of faith and a gateway to destiny.
And now the time has come to jump off that cliff. The time to live fully and be completely satisfied, to believe in yourself and in your vision. The time has come for us to believe that it is possible to be happy and to do what we love, to be abundant in all aspects of life.
It is possible and the time is now!
