Golly - Suzanne. This has a genuine spiritual feel to it - walking towards the light - and then, after reading your last paragraph, it all fell into place.Our subconscious is an amazing place. Beautiful
My Supreme Gunkness, you ARE doing well! The painting is beautiful - very ethereal, and, as Julie mentioned, spiritual. It has a very good feel to it, and most artists would give their right arm to be able to paint like this. I am teaching a watercolor class right now, and I think I must take the plunge into the depths of landscape as well. Suz, I am so happy to be reading about you again. Don't disappear for so long ...the other Supreme Gunkness XX
SO beautiful, Suzanne! and yes, SO spiritual! That light is amazing as well as the bridge... I hope you do more landscapes...a beautiful change!!
We feel like we want to walk right into this painting,,, its soo inviting!Its drawing us in,, and we feel that your vibration was perfect as you places each stroke on the canvas!Beautifullovetweedles
Really Suzanne, you are hard on yourself I think you did a beaut job of this landscape. It has a very hopeful uplifting mood...and I feel like down that path where that bridge is something wonderful is cookin. heh heh
I think this is a beautiful piece. Has a wonderful, early misty morning ethereal feel to it. Im not sure why you felt challenged doing a landscape as you clearly have the feel for it. I love that you meditate daily. I try to but sometimes life gets in the way until I realise that meditation is a way to ground myself against all those little life nìggles. And it's lovely that it's also a way for you to feel Tim's connection even stronger.
Suz, I am just not sure why you don't see the gorgeousness of this landscape. The mist, the greens...absolutely exquisite and so a scene I'd love to see myself. To paint it? Icing on the cake.I am also glad Tim continues to make himself known to you. I think he always will.
Your landscape is gorgeous! I tend to avoid painting them myself - just not my thing, but I like looking at the ones other people paint! I'm glad you are getting back in to the swing of life, by embracing the past and looking forward to the future. And of course the only way to do that is by making the most of the present :0)
There were a lot of things you said here that resonated with me, especially the feeling that generally as artists in pursuit of art we are collectively people who tend to need to be alone. (My neighbor called me a "shut-in" the other day.) And I can see why you were drawn to painting the photo. It leads us in. Cheers :)
Just getting out of bed after the shock of losing you beloved is laudable.So, you're ahead of the game. I enjoy hearing about your connection with Tim, in one way so comforting and in another so hard, because you can't see him.You're doing well and the landscape is kind of cool, but not laughable.
You're being too hard on yourself with your landscape. It is not as "finished" a piece as most of your work but there is definitely a beauty and freshness to it that I like. Makes me want to take a walk there. Hope you have a glorious autumn!
Good morning Suz!..."Play Misty for me"..... Remember that movie line... and Clint Eastwood thriller? The song "Killing Me Softly"... which when I hear it still played irreguarly.. still stands the hair up on the back of my neck. It always seemed so beautifully out of character/synch with the content of the movie... and still remains so for me today.Your beautiful light-filled... tranquil landscape evokes a similar response. Though not disquieting at all... it stands out as being so unexpectedly "different" from all of your previous works posted!A new vista perhaps?... "Pedal on"... Sweet Lady!Happy Fall and Good Painting Suz!Warmest regards and a hug,Bruce
We came back to walk again into this beautiful scene.lovetweedles
