This blog never built up the steam like my older one, so please visit and like my old and thriving blog at Charleston Through An Artist’s Eye. And also my artist page on facebook, which is public.
This painting is the image that reminds me of Charlotte, the city.
John O’Donohue, in his book, Beauty, The Invisible Embrace, calls ocean ‘wild divinity’. Water, he writes, stirs something very deep and ancient in the human heart.
But there is so much more to ocean. “It is beauty charged with danger.” He continues, yet even in its wildest passion, the ocean still holds dignity, it maintains poise. However and wherever it throws itself, it never falls outside of itself… it is always within the shelter of the one rhythm.”
Hope whispers in these waves. The tide always returns.
To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.” — Pema Chödrön
The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you, and you don’t know how or why. – Albert Einstein
