Inside the mind of a Painter series: Fear

image

The biggest obstacle in life is fear. Especially for artists in their art career. We are often very careful creatures, sensitive and riskaverse. I’m afraid to fail and I’m afraid to succeed. The fear of change is something everybody feels I think. Even when the change is good. Humans are creatures of habits. But in order to step it up to the next level in life we need to let go of fear.

The artist Georgia O’keefe once said “I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing that I wanted to do.”
I try to live with that motto everyday.

A spiritual teacher once told me that if I want to get rid of something I should visualize all those feelings as an object and then imagine that I am standing somewhere high up and then I let it go. I should imagine how the object is falling down, far away from me. The feeling “Fear” I visualize as a dark cloud pulling far away from me with the wind.

Here is a sneak peak of a new photo project that I am working on together with an editor. But this picture I have both taken it and edited it myself. Last year we worked on a similar project together and it was a success! The people we sent it to in Stockholm loved it. Now we are back working together as a team again and it feels great. Who knows what we will create this time! Hopefully it will result in an exhibition in the end. I will keep you posted with a few sneak peaks on what we are working on. Enjoy!
