On my wat to the Qi gong retreat I couldn't resist to look in the water again.
Someone asked me what it means to me as I keep taking photo's of it. Of coarse it is something I can't express in words. Approaching it it would be fluidity, transparancy, unlimited, endless, adaptability, fertility, life force, the origin, that what connects us which each other and the planet, purity.
But it also is just so beautiful and fascinating to observe how it interacts with the different light conditions and the different materials which carry it.

A retreat on Qi gong inspired me to return to painting.
And I am not depressed but I just love black at the moment as it connects me with space and light.
