The art and heart of life . . .
Thoughts in the moment to share with you . . .
A collector emailed to say that though their house has no more space for any more of my paintings, he always looks forward to seeing my latest work online.
It gave me a lovely fillip of inspiration to know that just to look at my new paintings gives others pleasure.
And as I was looking out at the spring landscape with all its sparkles of glowing light in the morning sunshine, and the horse chestnut resplendent with titanium buff candles, it reminded me how blessed we are to live in this astonishingly beautiful world and to have that reflected within ourselves and our lives.
The word ‘Mindfulness’ is getting to be a bit of an annoying cliché just now I know – but oh it’s so true that if we just take even a few nano seconds to be aware of the goodness and beauty around us (it’s always there, somehow, somewhere even if in darkest times we have to reach out, search, to sense it) it grounds and calms us – and gives us a sense of connection not just to the moment and what’s going on, but often spiritually or deep inside our own hearts too.
Yes – I live in a beautiful part of the world and outside there’s always something amazing to see or hear – but even if we’re confined to a bed or chair, it’s still possible. Could be through a thought or memory of your own or a friend, carer or someone on the radio, could be or in a book or something you see – through a window, in a park, on television or a clip on the computer.
Always always always – let’s take the moment and make it ours to connect with the innate beauty or understanding.
I’m on a painting high this Spring – just loving it. You can find my very large or more unusual work at www.Artfinder.com/JennyHare and www.Saatchiart.com/JennyHare ,
