I bought new brushes that aren’t intended for painting, they’re make-up brushes. I think they worked out great! A lot of great movements and texture.
The heat of the day can force us to slow down to pause and hopefully find shade.
In the image titled Living in the Shadow is from Inside the Belly of the Whale the shadow is the area that we see clearly the the plant is a rich green.
I choose a passage from Rainer Maria Rilke.
I’m sure he’s right, but it’s hard to learn to live in the flow of what life brings to us. I keep trying to be present, go with flow, like a river.
One must never despair upon losing something, whether it is an individual or an experience of joy or happiness; everything returns even more magnificently. What has to decline, declines; what belongs to us, stays with us, for everything works according to laws that are greater than our capacity for understanding and that only seem to contradict us. You have to live within yourself and think of all of life, all of its millions of possibilities, openings, and futures in relation to which there exists nothing that is past or has been lost.
― Rainer Maria Rilke, The Poet’s Guide to Life: The Wisdom of Rilke
