I painted this one after I dream I had. In the dream a man painted wide paintings like this in indigo with a greenish brown wash over. I thought in the dream that they were very masculine paintings. When I woke up I realized that it was my paintings, a more masculine side of me longing for contrast. When I started to paint them, they were more beautiful indigo/white than with the darker form with the greenish wash on top.

My youngest son looked at this one and said: “Did you see that you painted a black panther jumping behind the trees?”.
No I didn´t.

I painted this as the second one after I dream I had. In the dream a man painted wide paintings like this in indigo with a greenish brown wash over. I thought in the dream that they were very masculine paintings. When I woke up I realized that it was my paintings, a more masculine side of me longing for contrast. When I started to paint them, they were more beautiful indigo/white than with the darker form with the greenish wash on top.

When I put this beside my first painting in the series, Winter Scene, I saw that it was fitting exactly as they were painted together. Which they weren´t.

Great Mother River

The Great Mother myth comes from Mexico. The energy of the World passes through four different feminine forces or matriarchs, in both men and women. Either you are a Great Mother or a Rainbow Mother.

A Great Mother, whose shadow side is Death Mother, puts the family and society or organization first. They are most afraid of death, that they themselves should wear with or the children or their loved ones. This allows them to have a fairly strong control need to keep death away. Society often prizes a Great Mother because they like the very idea of ​​a society and often participate actively in it.

A Rainbow Mother, on the other hand, whose shadow side is Crazy Woman, is often bohemian, spiritually interested, artistic or added to the research profession. Her shadow is not death, but getting crazy. When a child is born, you find out what matriarch is strongest in the child and raise it so that it can integrate its shadow and live up to its highest potential and then become La Ultima Madre.

In my spiritual work I sometimes give a meditation where you can find which matriarch you are. Then you have to swim in the right river and slide down on the bottom and there meet your worst fear to then integrate it. I realized when I read about the myth that I am a fairly typical Great Mother but have integrated my shadow side Death Mother to become La Ultima Madre.

Driving from Cairo to the east coast of Egypt, through desertlike mountainous wastelands, the landscape flew through me, and past me… I left the old and entered new ground, letting the Red Sea wash clean my soul.

Always intrigued by the expressions of Zen, I made this indigo ink forest with quick brush strokes and by throwing paint from my japanese big pony tail brush on a very matte surface. I love it.
