Art Takes you to that place BEyond..

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Above are some of the images from sections a two paintings I have recently done.. Over the next few posts I will be exploring more of each section and sharing with you some of the thoughts I had while I sat with paint brush in hand..  And it may even weave into a story.. I don’t know yet.. I am still going within the flow of it.. 

If I appear quieter than usual, this is what is keeping me busy at the moment.. 

Have a Beautiful Weekend.. 

~Sue~ 

“When it is working, you completely go into another place, you’re tapping into things that are totally universal, completely beyond your ego and your own self. That’s what it’s all about.”

    Indeed Sue, Art is such wonderful facet of our life, once we are creatively engaged with the art form we love, we are instantly transported to a whole new world, we love being there and playing with our imagination, exploring the world beyond the reality and beyond what we see and feel, there is so much that we can imagine but we are limited by the modes of expression, perhaps that’s how we have discovered and invented ways and means to express our emotions and feelings through different forms of visual arts to performing arts. Words and language has the limitation to capture the wealth of imagination and words of wisdom that as human can create and generate. It is unfathomable…

    The series of painting of yours as ensemble in such slider of joy from the rainbow crows to roosting trees to things with wings, all such wonderful manifestation of such profound thoughts that no words can describe and in fact that wisdom comes in all shapes sums it up all…the choice of color and the combination of canvas that collects the tranquility and the essence of life and it’s beauty…perhaps paintings are the soul of our imagination. These set of simple but profoundly captured thoughts and idea behind such deeply driven thoughts, make the presentation of your painting so much alluring and appealing to all those who truly love nature and have constantly aspired to nurture the human values and at the heart of art, the creativity and composition of beauty and joy of life.

    Looking forward to the story that is going to emerge from this deeply creative and contemplative engagement of yours…weekends and in the glory of nature, only amazing things can take shape for the betterment of humanity and you have been the champion in taking the beacon of joy and happiness, peace and profound feeling of accomplishment and self actualization to a whole new orbit.

    Lots of Love…
    Joyous Weekend to you…
    😀

      Again thank you Balroop for those huge compliments .. Art is so satisfying, but we are all artists in one form or another, be it with words, stories, or paint or making jewellery, or gift cards. Dancing, Singing, or Acting. Teaching, or Serving, Labouring or Caring.. Each of us bring our gifts within the presence of our BEing…
      I so thank you for those Blessings Balroop and to you also.. Much Love.. ❤ xxx

    I like seeing this side of you (both the quiet and the artist). To me, your paintings speak to a quiet rebirthing, stillness, waiting, emerging from the deep.
    To BE or not to BE? 😄 You remind me that maybe I try to post, read, comment and follow too much online. More spaces for being, playing and being in the 3D world. hugs and blessings Sue.

    Such beautiful paintings and such nuances that I was able to perceive however, the artist knows his or her painting’s words like a poet that holds the only key to his or her writings regardless of what the poet or painter is perceived by others regarding their own work. The artist and poet will only know the true meaning of their work even as you say the story is at the beginning mark and will develop and if it doesn’t then it is only supposed to have words until the work is finished whether we deem it finished or not.

    It’s often hard to reconcile the vast differences between intense inward focus and interacting with others… Today my dear downstairs neighbors came upstairs to check on me – and found me with a big smile, splashes and streaks of purple, green and white paint on my hands and clothes, and they surely felt a bit silly to have worried about me. “”We didn’t hear you come in yesterday,” (it was raining cats and dogs and frogs) and we haven’t heard you this morning (because I was painting..) they said they called for me earlier this morning, but I must have been in a deep painting fog…

    Ironically I was working on a project for them! (Various menu signs for their tienda) They seemed surprised and peased…

    Since I often have coffee with them, they asked, ‘Cafe?” and I said, “In half an hour..”

    They were happy; they they left and I resumed my work. Surely an hour later I stopped! Wow, it is so beautiful that someone cares enough to confirm that all’s ok.

    Intense focus is like wandering around in a dream state, and it took me half an hour more to make sense as I visited with them!
    ………

    Paint on, dear multitalented friend! I think my favorite is shadow totems – tht fox in the negative space is especially nice!

Simply because I was getting inundated with wonderful awards, each one most treasured.. but time consuming to respond to as they wanted. Your award recognition is most deserving and I will be responding at your blog very soon as soon as I get caught up here..
      Again I really REALLY appreciate that you should think of me this way,, and I will be mentioning your kind offer in a future post that is for sure.. I hope you are having a good weekend.. Much Love to you and thank you so much again xxx ❤ Hugs Sue
