I spent my childhood in the countryside with my grandparents. I have many good memories from that time. My grandmother always took me with her to the work in the fields and mountains or to do the laundry at the bank of the stream. I remember that candlelit room in my grandparents' house where I slept. Sometimes she took me with her to her friend's house after sun down. On the way, the moonlight was blue and the night smelled good. I could see shadows of trees, houses, rocks, mountains, moving animals and tons of stars in the sky. I heard wolves crying and bugs singing. Each season brought different images, sounds and smells. I treasure all the memories back then, and they inspire my art now.
