Hi there all my friends, I have not been active on DA for more than three months or so.The main reason is that I had an heart operation. I am aright now got some new stuff inside me and a scar that runs down my chest.

Art and also aking have just not seemed very exiting. But yesterday I took some photos and then I just could not keep my self from digital manipulations. Mire or less a mix of a photo from a bridge (sweden) and a photo of a ceiling (germany). Kind of strange. Hope you like it!

Love this ! So glad you are doing well now. We have a friend that is going through heart surgery this week, I'm hoping he does well too.

Good news! I love your work & am glad you survived; I, myself, have too many scars to count. They each mark an escape from death- wear them proudly as badges of life conquering death and Art Ruling Fate or something like that. You have been through a life changing event, reminder of your mortality, etc., etc. But your love of art will win and make you strong again. I speak as one who knows live versus death in a hospital too well, too often. VERY HAPPY- I JUST FOUND YOUR WORK & LOVE IT!! :)

Thank you so much Julie for your kind words and your empathy for a stranger. I do hope you dont have to go back to hospital care once more. I will try to wear my scars as well as I can. And you yours. I am also very happy that you seemd to like my work so much. Most artists, and I am no exception often have a hard time finding good qualities in our work, we only see the what is wrong, so when someone responds on a deeper lever (i think you did) it is always very encouraging! for you: all the best. Now I will answer the your other notes!

I am so happy to have conveyed my empathy for your & your work. I just went back and looked again, and it truly touches something deep within me. Maybe you could stop finding faults and scars in your work long enough to realize how awesome it is to people like me. Am I missing all those "unwanted" flaws or are you missing the good (brilliant) qualities? Take a moment and just appreciate what you create! Just one moment- not too hard...   :)
