You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment... --Henry David Thoreau
Taking photographs of art isn't easy. And especially when it's one's own art work. So much of the nuances of color don't always translate within photography. Digital photo/art programs can enhance and help things along, tweaking color and light. Sometimes the soul of the work seems to slip past the lense though... And I think that's happened here. This is my newly finished canvas. I showed a peek of this in progress a little while ago here
It is hard to tell in the photos alone, but there are some silver metallic pigments playing about on the canvas. There are about ten different layers of paint.
The shade of purples and blues are so rich... I wish you could see them for real, see the canvas for real. This painting appeared to me in a dream, completed... I just had the task of bringing it alive with paint. Mindfulness and life in this moment is the theme... the foundation I try to build my life on.
Very soon I will be sharing more of my art and painting, as well as new creative projects under way. But first the weekend now. Dear Husband & I are heading away for a couple of days to enjoy some fun in the sun... I'll be right back! Wishing you beauty, peace, love & joy in this moment!
