"Entryway to Beauty"
6 x 12" oil on museum quality panel
A drive through my country, late afternoon, weak sunlight, I look for signs of beauty among trees now baring themselves and green blue grass yielding to winter's cast of gray. A reprieve for a soul filled up with so many images. I work at breaking the cycle of hand-wringing lists of things yet to do, to bring myself into this present moment. Window down, freshly opened bag of Frito's and a French jazz CD singing to me. Slowly, my mind allows me to savor the surroundings, to fill its restless self up with real life. Painting does that for me in a different way. Allowing my soul to reach out for the unknown beauty that my heart knows is there but my eyes don't always see.
Allowing. That's a ponderous word. Allow yourself today to do what your heart calls to do. Simply allow. You might just amaze yourself...:)Pin It
