Wear a smile and have friends; wear a scowl and have wrinkles. What do we live for if not to make the world less difficult for each other?

And we treasure all, all that we left behind us.
No pointed cold and dark regrets.
No nameless blame to lay.
Resolute, the optimist, I ride fresh horse and spur it on.

Monsters on the beach

In Uncategorized on November 29, 2011 at 07:27

…We spent most time walking along beautiful beaches and building sandcastles with kids. Everything was perfect, except dogs. Several times a day a real monstrosity (e.g. Rottweiler or German sheep dog) would run to us scarring everybody to death. Then in a few minutes relaxed owners would appear and we would be lucky if they say something like “he won’t bite”. No apologies for the fright, spoiled clothes and ruined sandcastles. I’ve actually seen (in the past) some dog owners who enjoyed scarring people with they “pets”. Anyway, I think all dogs should either be on a lead or wear a muzzle when out of their owners garden. Even at home, there are stories of small children being killed by family dogs appearing on the news all the time. They are animals and predators, after all. And that horrible mess they live on the streets and in the parks… No, its not that I hate the dogs, not at all, its just would be so much better if some owners been more responsible. Sometimes you can see notices “no dogs on this beach” but it seems that lots of people do not really care…

For everything you have missed, you have gained something else; and for everything you gain, you lose something else. It is about your outlook towards life. You can either regret or rejoice

Gonna lose my way tomorrow,
gonna give away my car.
I’d take you along with me,
but you would not go so far.
Don’t see what I do not want to see,
you don’t hear what I don’t say.
Won’t be what I don’t want to be,
I continue in my way.

We’ll go walking out
while others shout of war’s disaster.
Oh, we won’t give in,
let’s go living in the past.

Once I used to join in
every boy and girl was my friend.
Now there’s revolution, but they don’t know
what they’re fighting.
Let us close out eyes;
outside their lives go on much faster.
Oh, we won’t give in,
we’ll keep living in the past.

The meaning of things lies not in things themselves, but in our attitudes to them

Three Things you should Never do to an Artist…

In Uncategorized on August 30, 2011 at 16:49

From my own experience & what other artists told me:

– Never say “you have talent”. For many artists it translates into “you don’t work hard – just use your talent every time, have a free ride”.

– Your painting is very good: it looks almost like a photograph… (then whats a point of doing a painting???)

– Never give to an artist an artwork of another artist as a gift unless you are ABSOLUTELY sure he or she will like it. Just ask! We lot have normally very strong preferences in art!

PS. Personally I found patronizing words like “clever girl” be real killers…
