    Commented in How the new autocrats of Europe are using democracy to consolidate power

    I am starting to find paywalls and exclusion of media a very disturbing fact of life. Since Europe made a thorough set of rules about the internet, USA sites are more or less viewable, but with popups asking if I am sure I want to read 'those sinful lines" from abroad. It feels like censorship. In my country they use paywalls for exactly that (censoring): all the articles in most newspapers that are about poverty and the things that can be done about it, are behind a paywall. All the time, no exception. While propaganda, like alienating refugees and make them look bad, are with extra bold lettering, more images and more persistent on the front pages. It's a trend that goes on for years, but the past three years it became more obvious to me. Fascism isn't knocking at Europe's door, it's already there and in power in a diversity of flavors in nearly all countries. That saddens me alot and makes me wonder what went wrong with common sense, dignity and above all humanity.
    This article, like the rest of the newspaper, was made unreadable behind a paywall.

    Commented in Reflection-refraction by Martinus

    Thank you! :-) The photo isn't of that quality to see all the details, that's for the fans who come and see it live, of course. This is one for an exhibition I am planning to have in spring, say april or may. :-) The focus is mainly on insects and light effects, throughout the series. A small part will be older works, the rest it will be all new and specially painted for just that (and sales of course). It is the first exhibition that will be in one theme. It will be the ninth exhibition of my grand total so far, which is actually not bad for an "under the radar guy". :-)

    There are just about three people who saw it for real since it is finished. :-) The smiley is because painting for something to come has to be sort of hush-hush. Building up tension with the audience. I have learned a lot the last few years. :-) Another thing I have learned with the last ten works is that slowing down the process logarithmically enhances detail and overall quality. I will stick to that and do not let me tempt to short-term gains. The big gain of slowing down and enhancing is that it gives me insights in painting and creating, it forces me to study and sketch more, observe tonnes more, experiment with every canvas before painting it. Thorough artisanal craftsmanship. That's what I am aiming for now. Artistry comes with skills, it is the joie de vivre, the frivolity of someone who is so well with his skills that playing and creating becomes something extra, a sting to competitors and viewers alike: can you do this? See it as the n-th part of my, already years long, adventure and trip towards that craftsmanship. To the competition I say it's just the warming up. :-)

    Art and creating things that I think are beautiful (with moments) is giving me a reason to live: everything in my life is centred around it. Friends, family, everybody I meet is thanks to that. It is a lonely task, but the rewards of being with people I like or love makes that more worth? The last bit is still on a steep learning curve, being the Einzelgänger that I am. :-)

    Commented in Why Are Young People Having So Little Sex?

    Nobody ever mentions Darwin and the largest part of "On the Origin of Species", which is about adaptation. (That overly mentioned "survival of the fittest" is actually just a small part of the book).
