I am super excited. My rock and saviour, my sister Alex, is having the opening of her art exhibition on December 4. Needless to say I am super proud of her! Well now that I think about it, proud is an understatement.
She is MY all time favourite painter in the whole wide world. Cheesy but very true. I have always admired her amazing ability to express her feelings through her paintings and draw you magically into her world. The first memories I have from her is her dedication to draw, in unbelievable detail, beautiful scenes from her favourite children’s books.
Now, some 30 years later, she exhibits a series of paintings dedicated to her favourite fairy tales. What I absolutely LOVE about them is that they are not obvious illustrations of the fairy tales. There are no real characters. Most of them are scenes where nature and its animals play the leading role.
Some are more emotional, others are a bit darker, all share one common characteristic: They depict her soul.
I love her unconditionally and wish her the best of luck.
