Kom just hem från en vecka på underbara Knarrholmen. En liten, liten ö, som ligger i Göteborgs södra skärgård.
Sol & bad hela veckan, umgänge med världens bästa tjejer .
Har "jordat" mig, dvs avskalats från alla plikter & måsten (är lugn som en filbunke).Målat vid havet ...och ...motiv havet, badat i havet sittandes på solvarma klippor. Till slut blev jag ett med havet .
Hoppas du gillar motiven . (Teknik akvarell & torrpastell)
Just came home from a week at the wonderful Knarrholmen. A small, tiny island, located in the Gothenburg archipelago/Sweden.
Sun and bath all week, activities with the world's best friends.
Painted by the sea ... and ... in the ocean, swimming in the sea... sitting on the sun-warmed rocks. In the end I became one with the sea.
Hope you like motives. (Technology watercolor & dry pastel)

Going OUT on An INNER Adventure

CHRISTINA BECKENÄSPosted by Christina Beckenäs Thu, January 31, 2013 05:12:48
I'm going OUT on an INNER adventure, so I will reduce my involvement on facebook & here on the blog. See you from time to time, dear friend ♥ ♥ ♥.
Now, the journey can begin - Fasten the seat belt smiley!
When I feel confident in my navigation ... I loosen the seat belt in order to fly free.

"Look with your understanding. Find out what you already know and you will see the way to fly.”
― Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull
Read more about Jonathan Livingston Seagull at Wikipedia

"Jonathan Livingston Seagull, the most celebrated inspirational fable of our time, tells the story of a bird determined to be more than ordinary. Now at its 40th anniversary, this bestselling modern classic is released in a beautiful celebratory hardback. This is the perfect gift for anyone who has the courage to follow their dreams.".
I can´t believe that - I wasn´t born to drown in this ocean - I can die here - or I can force myself to fly - It´s in me
