Essence

Lone

Here is the next stage of the snow scape, painted from a photo I took while cross country skiing in Lake Louise. Some final touches yet to do, but not too much.

When I realize my work has touched someone, it is both a milestone and an honour. Suddenly a subtle awareness rises within. My soul is lying naked on the canvas.

Vulnerability is illusion. Above all, the simplicity and innocence which fuelled the creation must be preserved. More is revealed as we journey to the centre, peeling away the layers.

What a fascinating multi-dimensional process the art of creating is. Artful magical revelations. I count my blessings everyday, for the privilege of creating.

 
“The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude.”
~Friedrich Nietzsche
