Welcome to my Inner World. I am a French self-taught artist, and these past twenty years I have made Norway my home. Moving to the Lofoten islands was the greatest present I ever made to myself and the Arctic landscapes are indeed a true treat for any artist’s eyes. I live with my British soulmate,… Continue Reading
On Halloween night (or any night for that matter) be nice and read a story to the ghosts. They’re especially fond of spooky ones.Traduction ici

Raven, one of my daemons. And again, in the background, the Soul boat or gypsy boat. Raven’s a trickster. He’s even trickier than Fox.

This is my third digital painting, I spent quite a while on it. It combines two different moods, moonlight, sunlight and, nested inside the trunk, my Blue Bird. I had great fun painting this, enhancing the lights step by step, following the paths over the bridge or past the Vila – a Slavic fairy – in the tree. Either way, you have to pass by the mysterious figure standing by the tree in the middle. This figure is Psyche. Her being is most radiant when she is veiled because no image comes to distract us. She is Soul, permeating everything around her, enchanting, or leading to madness if taken too literally. Psyche’s sometimes represented as a moth or butterfly because she’s a symbol of transformation. Perpetual transformation. To take Psyche as a guide is to unlearn everything, and be truthful to the inner spark, no matter what others might say. Ask for a direction of Psyche and you will see that she will reply by way of dreams.
One thing I would like to do one day is to continue the painting on both sides. You can do that endlessly. But considering that a single painting takes me an average of 3 weeks, it would probably take me a whole year to build this world of paths. It’d be pretty cool though.Traduction ici
