M is for meditation.
“Painting is meditation that allows me to process the awe I feel for life and offer some expression of beauty to honor that.” – Linda Saccoccio
“Getting inside a sunset hooks me so I am unaware of time and space and my mind slows down. It’s meditating by painting and it’s great to the soul.” – Barb Rees
L is for love.
“The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transformed.” – Jiddu Krishnamurti (Krishnamurti was my favorite reading as a teenager and the first introduction to the Eastern thinking:))
This letter gave me a lot of hard time, but then yesterday finally I found this image at the Botanical Gardens after searching for a long time. I love it! G is also a special letter, because it starts the word gratitude and if you read my first alphabet blog post you know this all started from being inspired by artist Dee Overly’s gratitude letters (http://www.deeoverly.com/). Dee did not make her own alphabets, but she posted things she was grateful for alphabetically. Thanks again Dee! Also, I could not choose just one quote.
This is my latest creation – an old tea box that I painted and filled with sweet quotes about nature. I call it Nature Inspirations. I am taking this piece to the Ecology Center fundraiser next month.
I found the quotes from http://www.inspirational-quotations.com/.
