"Entryway to Beauty" SOLD

“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…:)

Please Note:  This is No. 2 in the French Italian Doorways series.

    Dreama, this is beautiful! The way the sunlight plays on the wall all around the door … very inviting! A country drive to clear the mind … hmmm, sounds familiar. Fritos and French Jazz … sounds like a good title for another book! 😉ReplyCancel
