I’ve visited and talked a lot to my Inner Child the last few months. He tends to be present for most of the traumas I revisit, and we’re getting along better and better. 

 

When I wanted to paint my inner child I thought long and hard about it. I didn’t just want to paint me as a boy. No. Going deeper I felt my heart - my true heart - is what visually represents my Inner Child. It’s a bit weird perhaps. Not like everyone else. And gosh darn it, that’s ok. I can take care of my inner child now. Or I’ve started learning how to. 

 

Also - on an artistic level - I’m experimenting with a bit of a new style, more angular, simpler, cleaner. More naive. And I like it. And where I’ve earlier spent weeks and weeks finishing a painting, I’ve now enjoyed going from start to finish in just about a week! And that’s including the time for a deep dive into the memories of my past and the visual concept development.
