Comments on Jindrich Degen’s Artwork

I looked through Jindrich’s artworks and found them fascinating. I especially like the painting “In the Forest.” There I feel that I understand the forest – being able to perceive how it lives, grows, and receives nourishment from the roots.

Many thanks for the gifts that you have brought to us all through your long life of music and art.  We are all the richer for your presence!  I was interested to see so many mandala-like pieces – conveying a sense of completion – though I think my favourite work is “In the Forest”. Once again, thanks for the inspiration!
