I usually work deliberately slow with my art, letting each idea and piece take time to evolve and mature, but sometimes the opposite happens; that I find something I feel I need to get off my chest right away. I got the idea for this one in the shower Friday morning and by lunchtime it was finished, in a single four hour, caffeine fueled, session. Over the weekend, I spent another eight hours refining it and getting it ready for print, but the essence of the picture was created in those four hours.
I would maybe not recommend this approach to creating since it’s very straining, but I do think that sometimes feelings and chance can get you to places that planning and thinking can’t.
This print will be available in a limited edition of 10 signed and numbered prints. It will also be available as licensed reproductions (poster and canvas prints) through retailers world-wide.

Since my daughter was born, two and a half years ago, the concept of time and how I choose to spend it has been central in my thoughts. Time is a finite resource, we all will run out of it sooner or later, but it is also the only resource we really own. I feel that keeping this concept (and in extension the reality of death) close by in my mind has helped me figure out a lot of stuff, and that is part of what I'm trying to touch on with this picture.
This was nice and long awaited find in my mailbox today. I had the pleasure to have my art as the cover image and featured over ten pages in Austrian "The Modern Times Journal" from last month.
