Life is full of Hairpin Bends....

During the past years it's taking me longer than ever before to create a painting.
I am never without ideas (happy!!) and the composition (the big picture) is there quite quickly, but next... it is all about the details.
With lots of patience I've been working on my latest painting: Hairpin Bends, 120x40 cm | 47x16 inch.

The title of this post already explains the title of the painting.
Life = Change.
Since our planet and its residents are experiencing a lot of changes which keep on accellerating, we have to adjust all the time.
In order to find a new balance, this means that sometimes we have to make AND take a lot of hairpin bends.
Taking hairpin bends sometimes also includes taking risks. But hey.. that is life. Living without taking risks is dull.
Then again... sometimes there is nothing to choose. This is what it is, take it or leave it.
