Mens sana in corpore sano. To me, corpore sano translates lately to running 4 - 5 times a week, getting fit and also getting ready for a marathon - my first (do you ever get ready for a marathon?).
This all means many kilometers a day, every week, per month. A lot of kilometers of road to appreciate, look at, detail, has been my source of inspiration, my mens sana. The road and its designs has been my landscape to admire and I realized that there is much more to see than greyish/blackish tarmac. Theres is a whole world of details on the road, each country has its little differences, each piece of road can tell about the people that have stepped on it, run on it, and enjoyed its view. I have also enjoyed its uniqueness: no two signs painted on the road are alike. The paint has worn off differently, the climate with its rudeness has affected it in different ways. (Does this apply to everything/everyone?)
Last but not least, I have shared many road moments with good friends and this definitely adds to the richness of the paintings.
On the road mood and mode has evolved into silhouettes: a figure that turns into something else by art of magic. Difused contours, bodies that melt and fuse with their background, forming one. Men and nature all one...
I think I will keep developing this concept for a little while so I will keep on running...
