Original Art by Samuel Araya

In the mail today, this raven painting by Samuel Araya. If you have been following me, you will remember the interview I did with the man for Teufelskunst. Fate has it, this was my first interview with a visual artist. And in retrospective this interview was more than just that, it helped us both evolve. Fate also had it, the painting arrived on this auspicious date and in an even more auspicious moment. (It’s been a rather sombre day…)I’ve placed it now in my ‘cabinet of obscurities’, where I’m keeping my small yet growing collection of occult books and religious/ritual paraphernalia. Now is just missing my stuffed crow to top it all…

Most fittingly, there was also a postcard included, which reads:

May the wings of the raven carry you

from nigredo to the stone of Gold

– SA. 30.1-15

Keeping it sombre (in a positive sense), here is how my workplace looked until a week ago. You see the crow and raven are ever-present:

Old Workplace, 1.2.2015

I’m changing stuff in my room and workplace since. After this long sick period, which I used however for updating and adding important content to this website (see the additions to the menue), I just want to get started. But not without some actual changes.

PS: Sam now also has a website. To view his work go to http://www.samarayaart.com/
