Artist insight:

I found the best healthy addiction ever. Swimming in the cold sea during the winter. 

 It started maybe on the 25th of December when someone told us about the Christmas swim at midday. It was a perfect sunny day and the water at Cala Deia was crystal clear. It was impossible to resist this great beauty. I run and jumped into the cold fresh sea. It was about 10-12 degrees. I had to concentrate on my breathing and calm down my mind to be able to give myself fully to this experience. Hundred thousand needles pinched my body. When I came out the water I was a new person, reborn. I felt ALIVE! From that moment I become a huge fun of winter swims. 

 Soon I realised that I belong to a "secret" community of cold swim enthusiasts. We used every single opportunity to have a quick dip, a jump, a couple of minutes of swim or standing on the shore and waiting for the next wave to get us covered in a bubbly water splash. Most of the time we would go to Son Beltran. This is where locals go to swim usually and this is where I painted the painting above, right on the sea shore.

Actually many times I didn't feel like going in at all but it was a strange and intense internal urge that always led me in. I knew, however I feel now in this moment, it's going to change for the better. I will feel more happy, balanced and alive.
