Yes, I am now in Riyadh, in the heart of Saudi Arabia, the capital city … how I ended up here is a surprise and unexpected fate. A few years ago, I would never have thought that life would bring me to live on the Arabian Peninsula on these endless, sultry, mysterious deserts with a century of history. Deserts that keep the mysteries of history and secrets in the hot wind of the country of mirages and illusions. These lands have not left anyone indifferent. Someone is afraid and afraid , someone leaves his heart of thought and soul . And yes, my heart already belongs to the deserts and mountains of the Saudi Arabian Peninsula.
If we analyze some moments from my past, then fate prepared me for this, it was just then that I did not understand it.
On arrival it was not at all easy …. first, I married according to Islamic laws, a man whom I didn’t know very well, we didn’t know each other’s habits, the foundations of life. I’ve heard and read a lot of horrors about this country, how women depend on men, how girls become hostages, how they lose children … and of course I was scared, but my heart told me it that I should make this journey. in the past I have experienced many betrayals and lies, I literally blew on cold water …. my poor my husband, I have to apologize to him for this, for mistrust and suspicion, and the fear of opening my heart.
Three years have passed …. and I can now say with confidence that I was stupid – I feel good here, I feel safe and I feel this very much in similar to my country, where you are afraid to go out in the evening … then I get invaluable life experience and the most important thing is the incredibly strong energy of the desert … this is magic, it is impossible to describe in words, I am happy to have experienced it.
I will now explain in detail about how I started painting here, how I opened my eyes to Saudi, which won me over and how I discovered myself in this vast expanse.
Who and what believes … I say Thank God, the universe, fate for being here now))
