Elephant ceramics, by Michele Michael. She incorporates the texture of traditional homespun linen into her pieces, and decorates them with a painterly approach - dripping, pouring and brushing glaze.
Contemplation is the art of holding a word or a phrase patiently in the silence and stillness of awareness until it begins to disclose deeper and deeper meanings and understandings. Contemplation has the power to transcend beyond (not regress back from) the limits of analytical thought and logic, and open consciousness up to an order of wisdom and Truth that can only be described as revelation.
If the whole earth was blind, what would beauty look like?
A caring heart
A kind spirit
A helping hand
A gentle voice
A soft touch
A listening ear.
Beauty isn’t what we see, it’s what we feel.
So close your eyes and see the beauty around you.
Close your eyes and be beautiful.
Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult.
It demands that you know how to draw well, that you
have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for
colors, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential.
