Bipolar disorder type II.
People with bipolar disorder type II have never had full mania. Instead they experience periods of high energy levels and impulsiveness that are not as extreme as mania (called hypomania). These periods alternate with episodes of depression.
I am not ashamed of my condition, rather its my “drive” to create and keep me ongoing with eager. Sometimes to much eager…and the down into the pit……. I look at it as blessing, not as any hindrance. Why not admit it and be myself as a creative person with an extra drive. High-res

Thalia ( Muse ) of the performing art 
Roy Lindquist has made a serie of contemporay and abstract art of Thalia the Muse, protector of theater and dance.
Thalia ore THALEIA was one of the nine Mousai (Muses), the goddesses of music, songand dance. Her name was derived from the Greek word thaleia, meaning “rich festivity” or “blooming.” In Classical times, when the Mousai were assigned specific artistic and literary spheres, Thaleia was named Muse of comedy and bucolic poetry and dance. In this guise she was portrayed with the attributes of comic mask, shepherd’s staff and wreath of ivy. High-res

In a corner of a remote island at 62º North West of Norway, near the city of Alesund, we meet Roy Lindquist, who was borne and bread in Oslo. He comes from a family of musicians, where father and his two brothers was both professionals and family entertainers.
But Roy Lindquist began in the age of 7 his dancing carrier, first in folklore and the soon after into classical ballet training. From the age of 16, he was appointed into the Norwegian Opera balletschool, where he was a student into the 1980.
But alongside dancing, painting and drawing was his second strong interest. After a year as a pupil under the contemporary art teacher Tor Hoff, he knew he had the creativity to do art, but this talent had to wait, because dance took  all his time, traing at least 3 to 4 hours aday.
Ten years on the stages, television and films, Roy suddenly left the Theater world and became a serious christian and went to a Bible-school and soon after was married and moved to the island of Sula, where he lives today.
In the age of 60, he pick up his youth interest of painting and drawing. But he found out soon, that the digital world and all its possibilities was the road that suited him best. Mixed media in photo and digital painting became an passion.
There is a lot more to it, and a hole magazine would not cover all his doing over the last 40 years as a performing artist. High-res

ABSTRACT & CONTEMPORARY ART
There are millions of good artist around the world that make Fine Art and Contemporay Art.  Time has changed, and as fore my point of view the “old school” of painting realistic landscape and portraits have forgotten that the photographic camera do a more accurate job than the brush. In abstract and contemporary art work, the imagination and the creativity of the artists own skills and fantasy is more interesting than as “man-made own invisible world, created from something never before exsisted”, this is the Road of Art today.
