I've found myself a new dream destination:-)
And 'never stop dreaming' is one of my favorite sayings.
I'm a fan of Monet's waterlily paintings. When I was young I had a favorite postcard. It was of a painting with bright and vivid colours. It showed a landscape with a bridge over a pond with waterlilies. Whenever there was a lot of turmoil in daily life I turned to this postcard and imagined myself in the peace and tranquility of this beautiful world.
Later on when I visited a museum in Paris I saw Monet's paintings for the first time in actual size and I was impressed and in love. This was also the moment I remembered my favorite postcard and realized it was Monet's urge to paint the 'unseen' world just beneath and above the 'actual world' I loved so much.
Not painting the reality but above all the feeling this reality brings you. Creating a whole new reality. That's what painting is to me too.
And now I just found out there is a fish pond somewhere in Japan that has this mystical appearance written all over.
So I see myself standing at this pond painting the most beautiful big waterscapes I can imagine. There is no hurry but I will go there one day I am sure!
What is your dream-destination?
And Why? I would love to hear from you!
