contemplation

Today, I will take some time to reflect.  I look back at artworks that I have done that are no longer mine.
They left me for a reason as part of sharing peace.  Like this room, there is joy finding a spot for quiet contemplation.

Take time to meditate today.  Find a spot alone with your thoughts.  Breathe and find a calm place.
Is there something you need to let go of, something to open up your space for peace.  Think of yourself as a dove flying into this room and landing softly, peacefully.  I think of my art just like that.

I remember this illustration - one of my favorite of yours. Today I am working at home alone - quiet and peaceful.

Yes, yes, yes!

Although I have a luncheon (with the Architect and Mr. W.), I have yet to even turn on the radio as I sit at the keyboard. Think I might turn that off, too.

What a contemplative place you've painted.

There never seems to be enough time to take a breath, let alone give the mind a moment to contemplate. I'll be looking for a little quiet today. Hope your time for contemplation yields soul lifting results. XO

My quiet time will be my drive in to work this morning. Enjoying the country drive and the sun shining. Love your vision my friend.

This is a lovely thought!

I find all of your artwork incredibly calming. That must be how you feel when you create it.

Sending peaceful thoughts you way!

Just looking at your artwork gives me the needed moment to sit back, take a deep breath and contemplate how much our friendship means to me!

I try to do just this: breathing and feeling for a moment!

Thank you!
