“In time you realize that the very world we live in, what we see, everything around us that looks like stone or rock is really the love that we feel in our heart.” ~ AH Almaas
This brought to mind my painting of the wind blown forest on the West Coast near Punakaiki. Being there in the forest always opens my heart and I feel such a connectedness and joy. I breathe out – the trees breathe in…. We are the same.
Facing the Wind Paparoas National Park, oil canvas, 600x900mm, $6,250
the painting is currently on show at the Artists Room Gallery in Dunedin if you’re in that vicinity!
