My coats have made a trail
of receipts, from door to bed,
with the room around me
I thought something today
about myself,
when the cashier placed change
into my hand.
What did I eat today?
Where did I go?
Reply to myself,
A red dragon fruit
And everywhere.

Ars Materia
Leaving your country starts with getting rid of as many things as possible. You give your old CDs to your sibling’s friend. Donate your art books to a teacher. Throw out as many childhood mementoes as your mother allows. Sell your car. Swap your thick hoodies for your sibling’s t-shirts. Donate the rest of your clothes to a homeless shelter.
You pack books from your old lovers and birthday presents from your current lover. You pack art supplies because they’re expensive to replace. You pack your country’s flag. You buy power adapters.
You cross the world with everything you own in two suitcases and a messenger bag.
On the other side, you rent the first decent apartment you find. For a few days you sleep on an air mattress and eat sandwiches off paper plates. You buy a used table and chairs from an Irish couple down the road who are returning home. They give you scratched pots and pans for free. You buy a mattress new.
You get a new phone and a cheap data plan be

Nothing Gold Can Stay
This piece was inspired by Robert Frost's poem of the same name, including a more literal interpretation of the first line. I really indulged in leafy details in this one and discovered the joys of negative painting while working on her copsy wreath. For posture and hair, I reused one of my all-time favourite reference photographs (previously seen in "To early yet to rise"), being now convinced that this setting does her more justice. 

This is an entry for the AquaChallenge at watercolorists

A quick "Thank you" note for a new friend who initiated a great day trip.
The painting was inspired by a gorgeous black and white photograph by Montse Capel that lingered on my pinterest forever, biding its time to be painted.

Hello everyone.

In real life I am a PhD in neurobiology currently residing in Bern, Switzerland. Totally sciency and just a little bit scatterbrained as this is what is expected from a serious researcher. ;)
But as Goethe's Dr Faust already declared: "Two souls alas! are dwelling in my breast."
I do love the mathematical neatness, the wonders of neurons that fire action potentials bringing us to think, feel, dream... But just as well I enjoy letting myself be drowned in the imaginitive pell-mell process of fabricating artwork without questioning its scholary value all the more treasuring its intangible appeal to human kind.
