Art has become sort of a therapy for me. Returning to painting is like going through a certain stage of life, I would compare it to initiation. And now, when I am serious about doing what I really love, there are a lot of new opportunities in front of me I did not notice before. Oftentimes we do not realize that we should do exactly what we love. It makes us happier. The happier people are, the more good deeds they can do. Maybe it might make the world slightly better. I paint the light and sincerely hope that I can touch someone's heart and even inspire a change for the better; inspire one’s courage to choose what they love, to overcome difficulties, and not to cease achieving. 120x100 cm, acrylic on canvas 2022
