stillness

stillness, oil and mixed media on wood, 12×9 inches

I have been working on this painting on and off for a few weeks now. And i have been wanting to finish it for a while, but other things pulled me away from it. This week’s prompt for Inspire Me Thursday is “Silence” and wouldn’t you know, but Inspire Me Thursday inspired me to finish this piece.

I am often attracted to landscapes because they offer me a stillness. A silence where beauty and solitude and the cycle of life resonate.

“In the sweet territory of silence we touch the mystery. It’s the place of reflection and contemplation, and it’s the place where we can connect with the deep knowing, to the deep wisdom way.” ~ Angeles Arrien
