Colorful Paintings and Inspired Writings by Artist Dreama Tolle Perry

“Heads Up in France”
12 x 12in oil on museum quality panel
SOLD

***

In case you missed it when I said this before…

It pays to keep your head up for a lot of reasons.
There is beauty everywhere.

Like little french windows that  sing you a song.

And make the heart feels almost to bursting
with the joy of uncomplicated things.

Soft blossoms, growing and glowing, touching used-to-be trees painted with the color of the sky

  held together by mortar and love.

All because you looked up:-)

Keep sending those good thoughts and love my way—they are helping me so much to infuse my best on what I am working on!!!

“Joy in Every Face”
9 x 12in oil on museum quality panel
$550




I thought this was worth repeating…

 

Empty.

 

We may fear this.

Feeling empty, hollowed out inside.

Absent of the “noise”  of life

So used to full that empty feels strange.

 

Consider though…

 

The Grand Canyon

An Empty that brings us to a place of awe

 

Hollow of a Tree

An Empty that offers a safe respite from the storm

 

Lungs

An Empty that gives us space to breathe into

 

Half Empty Glass

An Empty from which to measure abundance

 

A Ballroom

An Empty space in which to dance

 

To be full of things is to be empty of God.  To be empty of things is to be full of God.

~Meister Eckhart

 

I think about that ‘empty’ space a lot.  That emptiness is what allows for something to actually evolve in a natural way.  I’ve had to learn that over the years- because one of the traps of being an artist is to always want to be creating, always wanting to produce.

~Meredith Monk

 

Sometimes it is useful to look at what can be emptied out in life

in order to create a vacuum, a space to hold

that

for which we yearn.

    Dreama, I live in the Baton Rouge, LA area. Would SO love a workshop in our area! Your words and work are inspiring. I need to loosen my strokes up desperately! I don’t know if you might be planning a schedule for 2016 but it would be wonderful if you could consider my area. At the very least a DVD workshop? Love your work!ReplyCancel

“Lavender Embrace”
12 x 12in oil on museum quality panel
SOLD

 

Some things are worth repeating…

Hugs are good.

I would even go so far as to say HUGS ARE AMAZING!

When a really good hug is experienced it says soooo much
without ever saying a word.

There’s a chemistry that takes place with  hugs….LOTS of good things happen  when we
fold another in our arms.
Can you FEEL it?
Me too!

Today is a beautiful day to be thankful for the simplicity and wonder of a heartfelt embrace.

Lavender Hugs from Me to You:-)

    Right back at you, Dreama – sending you big purple, lavender and green (seeing as I’m here in Ireland) hugs and lovely lavender embraces to you, too. Thanks for the cheery-uppy gift of this post today. Perfectly timed. :)ReplyCancel

    It would be so wonderful if your BIG project was some form of book or video or on-line class for those of us who have not have the opportunity to travel and learn with you. Whatever you are up to, I know it will be full of heart, grace, joy and a “little” paint. Sending you good vibrations and juju!!!ReplyCancel

Colorful Paintings and Inspired Writings by Artist Dreama Tolle Perry“Step Inside”
12 x 12″ oil on museum quality panel
SOLD

If it was worth saying before, it’s probably worth saying again…

Inviting, eh?
A bramble of roses cascading outward,
turquoise gate ajar just enough to allow entry,
sunshine heating up slabs of stone.

A special place for you.
A respite from the day, from weariness, from sorrows.

Step inside
For inside you gather yourself
You rest
And Love will light your path as surely as the sun lights the earth.

Step inside:)

~~~~~~~~~~

On occasion, I come across special things that I realize I should share with you—how else you gonna find out about ’em:)??

Sabbath Song Farm, which I have painted the skies and cats of, is one of my favorite places to go.  It’s a B & B so far out in the country you think you will never arrive, but when you do make that last turn onto Toadvine Road, you can feel the dust of fast paced  life start washing away and you are SO glad you made the trek:))  My friend, Carolyn Boatman,  hosts women retreats, soul sojourns, pie-baking days, and for those of you who love scrap-booking, her Sabbath Song Farm is the best kept secret place to meet up with your friends for the day!  Her place sits between Lexington, Ky and Cincinnati, OH near Brooksville, KY and you can check it out by clicking here.

    This is one of my all-time favourites – both the painting itself and your thoughts and words in this blog post.

    Thank you for re-inviting us in to step inside – I need just such a special place to immerse myself into – yes, a respite from the day, from the weariness, from the sorrows and the sadness and the darkness. The light and the colour revive me, revive my spirit, and lighten my heavy heart.

    Thank you, Dreama, for the beautiful invitation to step inside, letting love light the way.ReplyCancel
