The paintings in this series are dotted with elements of wonder and play inviting the viewer in. They recall the voice of children marveling at nature and discovering life as divine. Remembering our childhood and embracing the mystery of life can bring back a sense of wonder for the world. From time to time, especially in challenging times, we forget what we mean when we say "playfulness." We forget that there is such a thing. We forget that we are capable of being playful. Thinking of the amazement a kid experiences when blowing bubbles and seeing the iridescent circles they produce or when finding a glittering stone on a walk. It’s like soaking your soul in a healing bath.
This painting 'Playground 1' with its bold colors and contrasts invokes feelings of play and reminds the viewer of how fearless and uninhibited children can be as they explore the world around them. The dark brown and red shapes contrast beautifully with the soft blues and pinks.
When joining the painting 'Playground 2', together they form a diptych, as you can see in the picture of a modern living room.
