Whenever I created this piece it made me feel so many emotions. I remember being so overcome by the process. It was like a lyrical dance between me my brush and my buttery paints. I named this painting "get away for a while" after it was finished. The title seemed to call to me and I couldn't get it out of my head. I am curious what does " getting away for a while mean to you?"
”Gratefulness for what is there is one of the most powerful tools for creating what is not yet there. What does gratefulness mean? It means you appreciate what is. You value, you give attention to, you honor whatever is here at this moment.” ~Eckhart Tolle ..*
When I have my headphones in, that does not mean start talking to me. There is no sign around my neck that says "Headphones in: willing to have a conversation". There is an invisible one that says "Warning: Headphones in: if you speak to me you may not wake up tomorrow morning"
