Here is a very short summary of quotes from the letters of Reiner Maria Rilke to a young poet (1903):

Your work must be independent from others' work.
You must not compare yourself to others.
No one can help you. You can only help yourself.
Criticism leads to misunderstandings and defeatism.
Work from the necessity and your compulsion to do it.
Work on what you know and what you are sure you love.
Don't observe yourself too closely, just let it happen.
Don't let yourself be controlled by too much irony.
Live in and love the activity of your work.
Be free of thoughts of sin, guilt and misgiving.
Be touched by the beautiful anxiety of life.
Be patient with the unresolved in your heart.
Try to be in love with the questions themselves.
Love your solitude and try to sing with its pain.
Be gentle to all of those who stay behind.
Your inner self is worth your entire concentration.
Allow your art to make extraordinary demands on you.
Bear your sadness with greater trust than your joy.
Do not persecute yourself with how things are going.
It's good to be solitary, because solitude is difficult.
It's good to love, because love is difficult.
You are not a prisoner of anything or anyone.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 – 1926) was born in Czechoslovakia and died in Switserland. Considered the greatest modern poet in the German language, Rilke counceled the young poet over a period of five years. No evidence exists that they ever met.

I am mostly a self taught artist and a professional graphic designer. Recently I was certified in fine arts and advanced painting from Emily Carr, University of art + design, Vancouver.
I enjoy working in different medias and I'm always on the look for the next creative possibility to express myself or simply to have fun with.

Hey all, I'm still alive and kicking!

I have a lot of stuff that are keeping me busy, but it's all good.

I had the painting Blue Dawn chosen for an exhibition in North Vancouver. 25 pieces were selected from over 350, so I'm feeling pretty damn lucky ^^

Blue Dawn by San-T…
The opening reception was packed with people, with hardly any room to move around, it was great!

Also I'm back into the phase where I don't like my old work.. it happens every now and then..

I usually tell myself to not touch them and leave them the way they are.. but this time I decided to repaint a bunch of them.

I started with a few small ones and I liked how they turned out so much that I decided to do it to every works that I don't like.

It's pretty exciting to see how they transform into something even more crazy, fun and colorful!

Have you ever painted something from your dreams? If so, what was it?

Your work is so incredible! Every piece is amazingly dynamic, like it was in motion when you painted it and you some how got it to slow down enough to stay on canvas. But each piece could still get up and move around if it wanted to. Absolutely stunning gallery.
