Daily Painting: Painting with Presence

Daily painting

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the concept of ‘Painting with Presence’.

As you most probably know, I’m very inspired by spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle. One of his core concepts is ‘Presence’. A way of being in the world that’s not based on your thinking mind, but on ‘being in the Now’.

In my experience, painting is a beautiful way of consciously entering the Now. Painting is non-verbal, it invites you to connect with your sense organs, and to be completely present in your body.


When I’m sucked into thoughts, painting always helps me to ‘reset’, to re-align with my body and a deeper way of being in the world.


This is what I made today:

The photo is not completely sharp. It’s again a collage on business card size.
