Art Blog: Love Abstract Painting

abstract love painting

I created this abstract painting using a kitchen spatula, sponges, comb, skewers and my fingers. On the far right corner, I scribbled the symbol for Love in Chinese.

The word for ‘Love’ can be written in so many languages, and said in so many various ways. Yet, the depth of the feeling remains the same. The madness remains the same. They say Love drives people insane. I believe in the depth of that very insanity is actually where you find yourself, where you truly know who you are. It takes another person to shake up the walls you have built around Love, so that you can actually flow into the very being of YOU, to learn how to love you first before another.

Art Blog: The Soul

??????????

 

We are all attracted to the light of a soul. A lot of spiritual teachings and modalities talk about being ‘good, nice, kind, generous’ etc – again emphasizing the light of the soul. We all want people around us to be the same good, nice, happy people.

But it is actually the combination of our light and ‘dark’ parts of our soul that make each one of us unique. There is nothing ‘wrong’ with the darker parts of us. There is nothing wrong with getting angry, with standing our ground, expressing our frustrations, crying our tears. As a society we have made the darker parts of us unacceptable, but yet its in our darkness that the light has a meaning.

Once we accept the darkness within us, the light within us shines brighter. Once we accept the insanity of life, our real truth stands its ground. Its where we become uniquely us, beautiful glorious us.

Abstract woman in nature

“…and forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the wind longs to play with your hair.” – Kahlil Gibran

I was very inspired by an unknown artist I had stumbled across years ago when I created this piece. Something about the colors grabbed me.

I love nature. I usually go and sit in parks, walk barefoot on the grass, feeling the earth beneath my feet. I take my books and grab a quiet spot under a tree, and it’s where I end up really connecting to myself. It’s where everything falls away or falls into place. The beauty of being surrounded by flowers, the crisp air, the freshness, the dew on the grass – all of it makes me feel so grateful and vibrantly alive.
