Fleeting moments of unadulterated silence


Fleeting moments

Fleeting moments

We have been given a late summer this year, yet my heart isn’t letting go of winter peels.
Joy struggles in the shadows, planning an escape that bounces off the walls of life. Of the mind.

Happiness is truly within.

Sun might enhance the rainbows of our soul, like contrast adding sharpness to a photo defining its contours but it isn’t the essential ingredient.

Yet, I inherently know delight lies in wait, lurks around the corner. A lifetime doesn’t vanish into oblivion.

I slow my pace in all good summer tradition, setting aside guilt (for imposing my will to those around me) living days moment by moment, listening to the pulses of nature, savouring every sound, celebrating the notion of nothingness surprised by the calmness that proceeds, appreciating the wonders of wildlife accompanying us wherever we are, on a daily basis gone unnoticed…

We are born to think motion is the only motor of survival, the only form of sanity but we forget to retire for a while from the hubbub to calm the nervous energy that comes with it.

We still have more than a month left. I know this might last no longer than the ink absorbed unto this page but I won’t forget so easily those fleeting moments of unadulterated silence & invite you to do the same 🙂

P.s
A very pleasant summer to you all!!

I promised a while back that I would slow down on my blog to work on painting among others & would let you know about the progress so, here is one of the results!
Bonfire is a sketch I had made in 2011, my brush took over as it happens in few but special moments without my ever thinking of a bomb-fire & to my surprise that’s what unfolded in front of my eyes…

Three years fast forward and I try & capture the magic of those colors on a 40/30 cm (11.8/15.7 inches) & aiming to go further in a much bigger size of 100/140 cm (39.3/55.1 inches)
Wish me luck 🙂
Here goes the process from 1st layer to last…
