A melting pot of paint, poetry and philosophy
oh my…this is just beautiful…
I remember taking a personality test that asked me which word I liked the most. One of the questions: Which do you prefer: Mercy or Justice.
I chose mercy. Thank you for sharing your painting. A wonderful artistic expression that defines the peace that comes when surrounded by mercy.
It’s a beautiful mood, beautifully expressed. A mosaic of mercy.
Stay well, in the arms of mercy, always!
And ‘what a melting pot’! Amazing!
You may wish to glance at some poetry – sonnets actually that combine to form the story of the awakening of a spent nation at http://www.nirbhayasindia.com
And I am eager for your comments.
Saw a bit of your blog and love your world. Will return for more.
Thanks, maybe paintings speak of something beyond the realm of spoken language. Yours do.
What an interesting test of personality. I, like you, would chose mercy… in a world that can so often be unjust… but maybe tender mercies and poetic justice can overlap in our hearts and minds… maybe I’m a dreamer.
It seems I’m stuck in mosaic modes these days…extensions from fragments of life and love, memories of those we love and have loved.
Thank you so much for dropping by, and peeking inside the paintbox. I am keen to follow your Sonnets and the interrelated story of awakenings in India. Just wondering, does laughing penguins @ paintedpenguins.wordpress.com/ know of your blog?
Thank you for sharing,
Perhaps Laughing penguins knows. That’s a blog I follow but am not sure whether they follow me. Why?
I see MJ’s blog has a similar shared vision of Indian society, based on compassionate, equality and the ability of the art to elevate consciousness of its peoples. I’m following her closely in that journey and wondered if there were any mutual influences with yours….?.
Oh I see, no I don’t think so. We’ve connected over blogging distances. . .
Love the creativity of your vision of the world expressed this way
The expression of mercy, or tenderness is one I feel most in moments of surrender. Surrender of self, of striving, of wanting – needing. It’s more a letting go, a collapsing and possible yielding into that which is here. I guess that in some way describes my practice of meditation, and the open way: a surrender to moments of mercy.
Quite beautifully expressed. the letting go. The simply being with what is..inside and out. a very peaceful place indeed. . . .i sense that
The mosaic is a great way to think of life – to live life. It gives a true sense of connectedness and disconnect, and of movement and stillness… of beauty and the transitory nature of everything we see and experience. :)
Its becoming a re-occuring theme, using fragmented pieces of old to make a new picture, a new vision of life. Which in turn re-awakens myself, to see all that which is couldn’t see before. And there’s plenty of that :)
Thank you Andrea. May you find peace and beauty…. in every colour you are.
Thank you so much Lee. Such beautiful words this morning. Perhaps we can do a collaboration again soon. Andrea
Yes I’d like that. I’ve not picked up the guitar lately, so I need a creative nudge.
Consider this your nudge :) have great week Lee and may life surprise you
A smile :) Perfect nudge!
