I’ve been thinking what would the color of forgiveness would be? I believe it’s somewhere between the wisdom of blue and the pain of red. When you put blue and red together the colors become something in the purple family.
There are many things are written about forgiveness but the truth is we all must come to it on our own. Bringing in a shade of purple in to our world might inspire us to get to forgiveness.
Getting a new perspective by setting limits helps mix things up. Following an assignment that artist Louise Fletcher suggests, to paraphrase, it will loosen things up!
For these images I’ve chosen colors that I wouldn’t normally pick and there’s with a painting time limit of 30 minutes. It’s a good exercise! More importantly I had the opportunity to approach the paper with a different attitude.
Sometimes it helps just to turn around and get a different view. Always learning.
This question of what wants to emerge, can only be answered when I get quiet.
For me, being quiet includes resting, restoring and listening.
Emerge means, to become known, come to light. I think we all would benefit from asking ourselves the question what wants to emerge and that question requires us knowing how we feel.
Coming to quiet. It, also means giving myself time and energy to let my mind wonder. Whether it’s painting and or watching my pets. I believe one needs room – maybe a decision needs to be made or you’re tired and taking time to rest and restore is the most you can do that moment.
As Lao Tzu reminds us that;
and Rumi shares the importance of quiet.
