My dear friends,

Hello.

I decided I am going to move to the Aegean coast of Turkey for a year.

I have no plan. All I want a do is paint, swim, eat lots of local fish, dance, see new places and meet new people, walk for a long time, and then walk more..

I am very excited about this new chapter in my life. I have been in Australia for 21 years, which I have loved. I have grown here, painted here, found my love here. Australia will always be my darling. The country accepted me for who I am, and it has made me a more free minded person. What a country!

But at the same time I miss my home country, which is Turkey. Every year I miss my mum more. I miss my sisters, my adorable friends. My culture. All the colours of my country. This I will experience after such a long time.

I will live on the Dat├ža Peninsula. For how long? One year. Maybe longer. Maybe shorter. Who knows.

I want to share this journey with you, I don’t know why Maybe I am scared to go back after such a long time, so if I share my journey with you guys I might feel better, not alone.

I want to take as many pictures, share the places and my feelings and of course, my new paintings with you.

“Nevo” is my nick name. Most of my Turkish friends call me Nevo. So here is my journey guys. “nevo datca”

My heart is full of love, excitement and hope for all beauty and good things. But at the same time, I am scared. Scared of being so far, for such a long time. But hey! I already bought my ticket, rented the studio and I am going New chapter, new journey. So Time is Now! I always believe that. Love you all!

Tether

Painting by Nevin Hirik " Tether" 2009 Acrylic on linen 61 x 183 cm Private collection

"Come.
Give me you're hand and we'll walk
Don't ask me where.
Don't ask me about happiness.
Maybe it will come.
When it comes,
It will come down on us like rain.
Come.
We'll hug, and we'll walk.
Don't ask me when.
Don't ask me about home.
Don't ask me for more time.
Time doesn't wait, doesn't stop, doesn't stay.." Idan Raichel
