made September 2011.
I sometimes wonder how in the world I got here. I read Siddhartha en the dairy of Vaslav Nijinsky, a world famous dancer who created a weird twist in his life by being manipulated by his later wife. He wrote, “I never went to war. I was fighting for my sanity every at home. I was not hungry but my soul was starving” Soulful living means that you have to do what feels right to you, not what your surroundings think. He never danced again. I was thinking about that when I painted this.
