This is a monochrome Oil on Canvas Painting I did in 2003 that always reminds me of what life could be when we choose to see nothing but peace and tranquility around us.
I painted it while listening to Bach's 'where sheep may safely graze'...a classical piece that takes me to an open field in the middle of nowhere where the sounds I hear are the gentle murmurings of my sheep and the singing of birds!!!!
Don't know why I used scarlet lake oil paint!!!! But it sure did turn out nice. Before I painted it I was never the type to move away from the conventional way of painting. When I finished it and hung it on the wall in front of me...I finally understood that grounds can never be broken and happiness can never be gotten if one never breaks the rules.
HAVE YOU EVER BROKEN ANY RULES AND DISCOVERED JOY AT THE END?
All the best
