"The Light Falls Softly in France" SOLD

“The Light Falls Softly in France”
12 x 6in oil on museum quality panel
In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.
                                                                                                           ~Aaron Rose
Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished.
                                                                                  ~Michael Strassfeld
How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains!
                                                                              ~John Muir
The windows of my soul I throw
Wide open to the sun.
                                                                        ~John Greenleaf Whittier
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything,
That’s how the light gets in.
                                                        ~Leonard Cohen
Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.
                                                                ~Kahlil Gibran
Your life is something opaque, not transparent, as long as you look at it in an ordinary human way. But if you hold it up against the light of God’s goodness, it shines and turns transparent, radiant and bright. And then you ask yourself in amazement: Is this really my own life I see before me?
~Albert Schweitzer
Thank you for the light you shine into my life and those around you. 
You are
An extraordinary gift.

    Dreama, This is beautiful. You have captured that soft light beautifully! I have to tell you it has only been a short time since our workshop in KY but someone on my blog said that my art seems to have turned a corner lately. Thanks for helping me go round the bend! KarlaReplyCancel
