New Work: The Landscape
“Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.” ~ Rumi
This is a new landscape I've worked on and finished up yesterday: ready to be framed and shipped to Patricia Carlisle Fine Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Last month, when heading to Florida, I stuffed a number of small boards and canvases in my art supply bag--then worked on getting pieces started one balmy soft afternoon spent near the blue sea, the white sands, the soft cypress trees whispering overhead. When I returned home to North Carolina, the pieces all had a similar feel and spirit, as if they'd captured the thoughts of that peaceful afternoon. A kind soul recently brightened my day with a note that my art and musings had made a difference in their day: making a donation through my paypal account for art supplies, etc. Sometimes unexpected gifts transcend and inspire. It's a reminder that I'm not alone, nor are any of us in this world, that goodness and love do prevail. Indeed.
