Original acrylic and oil painting entitled - Many options or to die to your past every second


Only 1 available

When a painting isn't realized, you pitch it in the fire and start another one - a saying attributed to Cezanne.

The title of the painting is " Many options or die to you past every second ".

It represents the many options in life, love, art and thinking.
Every square, every field in the painting represents a possible way of thinking, a possible way of living.

It represents an inclusive universe instead of an exclusive one.
The squares stand for physical and intellectual freedom. They represent places, people, societies in all their beautiful diversity.

Choose, change and rethink you live -if you wish too- is their message.

One option can be as right as another one for you. The work done and years lived in foreign countries have transformed my way of thinking and seeing life. The world can be seen through many eyes and life can be felt in many different ways.
Staying away from my own country of birth for many years made me really see and learn that my own values and belief loose their " mighty" importance in the face of the world's diversity in culture, religion and society.
I know now that I do know nothing. The more I learn the less I know. And this is an advantage.

This is a picture against " The Absolut". It is a painting representing spiritual freedom and patience. People's values, beliefs and convictions are in most cases conditioned by their up-bringing in early childhood.

When a picture is not realized pitch it in the fire and start a new one.
If a life isn't realized start another one. Die to you past every second the power is in the now.
Here's to mental freedom.

The painting is done on hardboard.
Painted with a mix of acrylic and oil paints.
Signed in the right hand bottom corner by me.

Measurements 92 cm in length and 65 cm in width. The frame is 2 cm wide.
